Cafe at back of NT Parliament- good basic food, great coffee and wonderful view of Darwin Harbour. Peaceful place to get away from Mitchell St, and take the time to look over Parliament too. Fav was the spritzer given the heat

Very busy and hence a bit of a wait for coffee. A pleasant outside terrace at the back of Parliament House worth looking at . The coffee however was a bit weak and flavourless for me.

A real gem, great location in Parliament Hose, with great views of the water. The cuisine and coffee is superb. An amazing menu, and quality professional and enthusiastic service. A must visit.

Originally we only decided to lunch here because it was lunch time after our visit but we enjoyed the food so much that we returned again because of the tasty food, friendly service and the outdoor setting which was so relaxing and pleasant.

We had breakfast at Speaker’s Corner just over a week ago when were in Darwin as part of our drive around Australia. The setting is divine, overlooking the manicured lawns of the parliament building and the ocean, it’s pretty for sure. The food then takes...More
