Hello all, it's Connor and Amy writing our very first blog following our adventures in the Australian Capital Territory. We will be exploring and reviewing different places in Canberra; their food, atmosphere and how special needs friendly they are. We are working together as authors to write up our blogs, incorporating the perspective of someone on the spectrum {Connor}.

Today we went to a decent café named Twenty-One in New Acton. Conceptually, it’s super cool, being both a grocery store and a café. Tres Convenient.

Here's the outside exterior

Marvelous and yet decent

The layout is great because it’s spacious and there are a lot of seating options, booths, couches and the regular style café tables. Luckily, we went in just before the lunch rush and snagged ourselves with what we think was the best booth in the house.

We even have a lamp and a small screen tv

Wheelchair accessibility

The café was wheelchair accessible but you may have problems getting through the aisles in the grocery section if you are moving around. Sadly, you may also have a small issue moving up towards some booths because they are raised [make someone lift your chair, it's totally worth it]. Bathrooms are not available in the café but if you make your way to a building [21 Marcus Clarke Street] just around the corner, there are disabled toilets up an epic ramp.

Here's an in depth demo of the raised booth

Yay, toilets!!!

We ordered pastries from the counter, so we can’t really comment on the menu but the choices look yummy and they offer vegan options.

Yum!!!! So tasty

Here are our opinions down below

• I personally think the chai latte and the spinach cheese pasty was good and it fills you up quite a fair bit (Connor B, 2017)
