Hidden away in a pocket of North Lyneham sits a cafe with a perfect name.

Hide and Seek Cafe in Lyneham opened in the summer of 2023, and has been a fan favourite of Canberrans ever since!

Boasting a gorgeous menu with all the brekkie favs, like eggs benedict, French toast and zucchini and corn fritters!

Add on top of that, everything is made in house!

Seriously, even down to the pickles – the chefs at Hide and Seek get it done!

Plus, they cater for a range of dietary requirements.

Gluten Free? They’re on it.


Vegan or Vegetarian? Endless opportunities!

Dairy Free, Nut Free – you name it!

Yet it hasn’t always smooth sailing for the new northside café!

Brett Waslin, the owner and brains behind Hide and Seek, spoke to the Served! podcast all about the struggles on opening a business here in Canberra after the covid years, as well as how the “Hide and Seek” name came about AND what the fan favourite menu items are.
