Muse - Food, Wine & Books
Nice atmosphere, good wine, delicious food. I’d recommend it :)
Had breakfast at Muse before and it's always very good - excellent service and very convenient!
The trio of tasting wine at a set price is impressive and unique. It’s a perfect accompaniment with the meal.
The service at Muse is usually terrible and the food great. However, last weekend the service was great and the food (breakfast) was quite ordinary. My french toast which was supposed to be sweet had clearly been cut on the same board they used for onions as that is what it tasted like. My friends all said their breakfast was fine, but not outstanding. I'll still go back because it's a lovely spot in a great location.
Good food - and plentiful - in a lovely atmosphere!
It’s a beautiful place and loved it. My husband loves quite places it’s such a relaxing environment.
Fantastic attentive service and consistently delicious food. Love the idea of great food and coffee in a bookstore. Only downside was the noise - it was so deafening couldn't hear my dining companion's conversation.
I really enjoyed my food and the staff were friendly and very helpful.
However, I’d gone out for a nice Sunday morning brunch catch-up with a friend, and had to leave as soon as I finished my food because the café was extremely noisy and I couldn’t hear her to hold a conversation. I ended up with a headache.
On a previous visit the noise had been more bearable, but on this occasion they’d allowed too many large groups to book who were speaking very loudly with each other. The staff offered me a table outside, but I also didn’t want to be sitting in the cold.
I think I’ll be back, but never again during a busy period.
Top glass. I dined with a gluten free, dairy free friend and nothing was too much trouble.
Love Muse. The owners are awesome, the menu is well thought out and carefully put together and the delivery fantastic !
The food is quite the best we have eaten for a long time. Atmosphere and ambiance relaxing and noise level suitably muted. All round excellent experience.
Excellent service, food that was beautifully presented. Wine recommendations were superb.
Very enjoyable lunch. Classy food and attentive service in a very nice atmosphere. Will come again for sure.
Yummy food. Efficient if not very friendly service.
Love the black pudding, nice atmosphere, great coffee.
Excellent food, service and ambience. As someone who prefers to eat mostly vegetarian, it's often difficult to find an upscale restaurant that serves filling plant-based food. At other restaurants in the past, my partner and I have gone home hungry despite ordering everything vegetarian on the menu. This is not so at Muse - the food is generous, balanced and of course delicious. Our favourites were the haloumi with honey and rosemary and the baked sweet potato, but everything we ordered was good. Thank you Muse for a wonderful night!
Busy vibe, friendly staff with great food & coffee. Really nice place to catch up with friends for a meal
Great venue with fabulous service - and even better food and wine!
Second time going there for team lunch. Loved it both times. Fantastic options vegetarians and vegans. The desserts were amazing. Will definitely go back again.
A really pleasant dining experience, a bit of a hidden gem I believe.
Service was excellent, professional and respectful.
Food was delicious as usual. We come here for the Vegetarian dishes with the couple of Vegan options.
I have dined here before on the Christmas set menu with a request of Vegan preference (which was outstanding) so I know they could easily add in more Vegan dishes which everyone could enjoy.
Great food, service, atmosphere! We always come here for breakfast, love it!
I go to Muse regularly to meet up with friends, eat, drink, chat (mainly about books) and attempt to resist buying all the books on the shelves :D
The food and service here are outstanding and very good value for money particularly with the lunch special deals of main course and wine/beer/soft drink for $22. Such interesting and fresh tasty food beautifully presented. Underground parking. Light and airy atmosphere. Bookshop attached to restaurant a bonus.
Quite possibly the best brunch venue in Canberra. A great menu to choose from, on point espresso martini’s and perfect selection bubbly all brought together by thoughtful professional staff!
Excellent entree and main course. Dessert (cheesecake) was not up to standard of other courses. Ten out of ten for service - complimentary glass of sparkling wine on arrival (staff knew it was our wedding anniversary) and well-packaged remains of our lamb main course to take home were very nice gestures. We would come again to Muse.
Love this bright and airy space. Staff look after you well, food delightful and the coffees perfect. One of my favorites in Canberra.
Lovely relaxed atmosphere and we could actually hear each other, which was good as we had a lot to catch up on. We had the lunch special which was great value. I had the pulled pork burger without the bun and would definitely have it again
We went for Sunday brunch. Muse has a lovely ambience in a convenient location, with a nice bookshop at the front. Relaxed browsing environment.
The food is tasty and creative.
Service was great
The food and service was amazing, thank you! Healthy and delicious. (And the best coffee 'swan' we've ever seen on our cappuccino!)
Excellent night out. Staff were very patient with us being slow to decide what we wanted, had helpful suggestions and were efficient and friendly.
Excellent service, food and wine. Cannot fault this place.
Service was spot on, the food was wonderful, the offer to us to split the bill was greatly appreciated too. Smiles from staff gave a positive vibe. I rarely come out of cafes or restaurants 100% happy, but I did this time! We will be back.
Had a late brunch there on New Year’s Day - great food. The Orange and Almond French Toast was fabulous as were the panko -crusted mushrooms. Service efficient and not obtrusive. Lovely and quiet outside but very noisy inside. Good atmosphere though - we’ll definitely be back.
Great service and sophisticated food. Thoroughly enjoyed breakfast 3 days in a row.
Our 4th Xmas brunch at Muse - it's now a family tradition. We love the relaxed vibe, interesting menu, creative wine list with plenty of local wines. The service at Xmas is always impeccable - a nice mix of speedy and welcoming. Easy underground parking, good access for those who can't walk far. And we get to browse the books afterwards. Perfect!
Pleasant place with great food for Christmas Brunch. Staff accommodated our request to change seats. Nice atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating.
We found the food to be of high quality, the only thing we would suggest is to have some child friendly options on the menu.
Re brunch & lunch - both have good, well-balanced menus of healthy, tasty food, with enough choices but not too many. Service is unobtrusive, friendly,courteous and prompt. Noise level is acceptable. A good place to have as your regular 'go to' cafe.
Enjoyed a lovely lunch. The service was excellent and friendly and the food was delicious. Great food options in the lunch deals that included a drink. Will be back.
We had a lovely meal at Muse. Service was great as always - the right amount of attention and time to enjoy our meals. Staff are really knowledgeable about the wine offerings and offer good suggestions on pairings with food. I really appreciate good service as it's really hit and miss in Canberra.
The meals were fantastic as always. We had the soft shell crab and pork belly as entres - both amazing. Mains were the duck and the kingfish - both great but the kingfish was exceptional.
All in all a lovely evening and we'll definitely be back.
