Kita Canberra’s only after hours cafe

We finally made it to Kita last Friday. Such a lovely setting with comfortable sofa seating. Looks like it’s a favorite coffee spot for the coppers too, but we didn’t try any black java that night.

Instead, we had the below spread… Our top two dishes were from the dessert range. The curry of the week was a Beef Rendang and while we were so tempted to try it, we didn’t. We had already planned our menu before arriving and didn’t want to divert from it.

For the entire period we were there, there were at least about twenty police officers coming in and out to get some coffee. It got us really curious at first, then we just resorted to the idea that perhaps these officers really like Campos coffee. But if you read their about page, it will explain their AFP connection.

We ordered three mains. Between the Gado Gado and Nasi Goreng, the Nasi Goreng was quite lovely. We had tried the vegetarian version but next time we might go chicken. While their Soto Ayam was a bit bland it would sure make a nice soupy meal for a cold winters night.

For dessert, we ordered all three items on their menu. Our friends had unanimously agreed that the Pandan Waffles and Pisang Goreng were the best dishes of the night.

Accompanying the Pisang Goreng was a delightful coconut ice cream that had us shouting for more!

They have a number of unique dinner and breakfast dishes on the menu, and it would be hard to make an opinion about their mains without returning for at least a second time.

All in all, it’s really nice to have a place to go to for Indonesian fusion food with friends after 11 o’clock at night.

Kita is located at 59 Boolimba Cres, Narrabundah ACT 2604. Visit their website to view their menu.
