"Where do MPs get food in Parliament House? Are there coffee shops for the staff?"

Hi James, thanks for your question. Members of Parliament often work very long hours and are not able to leave the building in case there is a division vote, so there are options for food within Parliament House. There is a public café called Queens Terrace café which is open to both visitors and those who work in parliament. The Staff Dining Room is a more casual food service for members of parliament and other staff, and the Members and Guests Dining Rooms are where senators and members can order more formal meals and meet with invited guests. Parliament House also has a coffee shop called Aussies which is also a popular place to eat, meet and greet!
