Cafe and Lunches

The Food Coop Cafe serves up your caffeine and snack hits with organic fair trade coffee, homemade baked and raw goods and delicious lunches.

More than just a cafe, the Food Coop is a communal hub in Canberra. Come enjoy the coffee, food and atmosphere. Make yourself at home with our low environmental impact recycled furniture indoors, and milk crates and cushions outdoors. You also enjoy all the comforts of FREE WI-FI, and good company.

We serve delicious vegan, gluten-free lunches every weekday from midday.

Cost is just $6 for Co-op active members, $7 for students/concession holders and non active members, and $9 for the general public.

Come and enjoy our beautiful communal atmosphere – always full of music, friends, and conversation.

We also run a weekly Parents, Carers & Bubs group on Thursdays from 10am-12pm. You can have coffee & cake, make new friends and reconnect with old, and get a hand from a friendly volunteer to get your weekly groceries done. Invite your friends! All are welcome – the Co-op is an inclusive community that respects all kinds of family structures, identities and abilities.

If you would like to volunteer to help with lunches or the cafe, please inquire at the cafe or email
