WHEN all the world was younger, and your correspondent was catching buses to get home to Dickson from Radford, stopping in at the then newly opened Cafe Fountaine overlooking City Walk seemed like the very height of sophistication.
Over the years, amidst comings and going from Canberra, it’s been a reliable, if unspectacular standard.
An okay cafe in a great little location and a refuge from the bustle of the Canberra Centre.
So it’s with a little bit of sadness that I noted today the space is now empty and the Canberra Centre is promising “A new cultural experience soon to be revealed”.
Still, the best part of a quarter century is not a bad run for a cafe.
