Kith And Nosh is not only Braddon's newest eatery - it's also given Braddon a much longed-for deli.
Owners Sandee And Michael Smith are originally from Brisbane where they ran restaurants, before moving to Dalby where they ran a cookery school for 10 years. Their move to Canberra was not for food, but to be closer to the snow.
"We travel down here every year and come straight through Canberra to go to the snow, so it was a logical choice [to move here]," said Michael.
"Our kids have just both grown up and left school, so they are now part of the [Kith and Nosh] team. So that's why we came here."
The family had plans to open a cafe down the track, but when they spotted the space on Lonsdale Street - formerly Mood Food and Black Sheep - they jumped at the chance to open their own venue.
The Smiths have given the space a complete refurbishment, with lighter tones and timber tables.
The cafe is open for breakfast and lunch Tuesday to Sunday, with a menu focussed on mindful and healthy eating, with vegetarian, dairy-free, vegan and paleo diets all catered for.
"And because Canberra's so great with having local produce, that's what we wanted to really work with," said Sandee
They're not only using local produce on the menu, but also selling it, at their own little deli out the front of the venue. There's fresh bread from Three Mills Bakery plus olives, oils, organic milk, coffee and spreads.
They are also about to launch their own range of fresh and frozen take-home meals, which will be available in store.
Open Tue-Sat 6.30am-2pm.
Kith and Nosh, 24 Londsdale St, Braddon
