About US


As a UK expat, owner/chef Geoff and his partner Kate (a Canberra local) spent quite a lot of time searching for the perfect location for a cafe where Geoff could create a menu honoring his Celtic roots. As soon as they saw the space in Hall, they knew it was the one - a peaceful, relaxing setting surrounded by open space and natural Australian beauty.

After running a successful doughnut business, Bombolini Doughnuts (a staple at Canberra’s Capital Region Farmers Market, Southisde Farmers Market, The Forage, Handmade Markets and more); Geoff and Kate thought it was time to expand on Geoff’s talents as a chef and take the plunge in opening a cafe.

The result is Kynefin. A little cafe in Hall, where simple things are done well.
