Best cafe in town
A wonderful experience with a smiling greeting from staff as you enter. A beautiful array of cakes and pastries it was hard to choose. I went the carrot cake and I was not disappointed. Coffee was great. Staff were friendly. Atmoshphere was relaxing. Well done Ciao!

Great Coffee and Breakfast
We were in Queanbeyan for a conference and were looking for breakfast and coffee. What a nice surprise. Great coffee (almond milk too) and nice breakfast wrap. All served quickly and with a smile. So good we came back again the next day for a bacon and egg roll. Winner! Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed.

Customer Service

Ishika

Everyone meet Ishika, or as we know her, Cheeky! This little pocket rocket is the entertainment of Ciao! You’ll catch this cheeky gal behind the counter every morning ready and waiting to take your order! Ishika’s signature toastie has made it to the Ciao Hall of Fame, a toastie so good it’s even been named after her! Make sure you try our Cheeky Toastie next time you’re in store! In her down time, Ishika relaxes with her partner and fur baby, Tuffy 🐕 Fun fact about Ishika is that she is left handed! Your morning is guaranteed to be brightened if you’re served by Cheeky, we just can’t get enough of her infectious joy and laughter! 🙈

Manager

Emily

Introducing Em! Em joined our junior staff during her high school years. Once graduated, she jumped on board full time and has gained experience in all aspects of Ciao. It’s not unlikely to find Em pouring you an awesome coffee on the weekend, though throughout the week, Em is back of house baking or decorating all the yummy treats you find in store. As a gal that loves to keep busy, there’s not much down time on her schedule. Em spends her week nights at the studio, training dance or pole fitness. Offer Em something to eat and she won’t turn you down (though chances are, she’s already asked if she can have some) Next time you pop in, try your luck at finding Em 🔍
