Ricardo's is my family's favorite cafe in Canberra. The staff are friendly, the coffee is delicious and so are the cakes. Would recommend to anyone wanting to catch up for brekky, lunch or afternoon tea.

Ricardos has quickly become one of my favourite brunch spots in Canberra. Friendly service, great coffee, yummy breakfast (pancakes are a favourite in our family) and the almond croissants are to die for! If your a macaron fan the popcorn one is by far the best macaron I have ever tasted.

Keep up the great work Ricardos!

Everytime I visit this place I'm reminded again how poorly Canberra city is served with cafes when this one stuck out in Jameson is so good.

It's always busy when I come here, inside & out. The reason is because it's unpretentious, with great food & excellent coffee.

Of course the other big attraction is the display cabinet of sweets that are actually made at Ricardo's, rather than shipped down the road from Sydney.

I hope Ricardo is making a mint here. He deserves it. My only wish is that he would open some other places too and really shake up the cafe scene in Canberra.

My favourite meal here is the open cut lamb sandwich, with lamb so tender & tasty you'll want to cry. Followed by a cappuccino and vanilla or opera slice.

Divine.

When I went with some friends we booked prior for High Tea. When we arrived we were bunched on a table that was too small for us. The food was delicious, though and the drinks were average. Service wasn't fantastic. I wouldn't be keen to make a trip there again.

Beautiful food, beautifully presented with friendly staff... what is not to like? The coffee is good and you'll be amazed at the range. The place is packed at peak times, so if you're on holiday, choose weekdays for tea / coffee and cake or a delicious lunch.
