As a neighborhood resident and regular user of Darwin Airport, I agree. There have been so several situations when I have been at the terminal waiting around to catch flights at odd hours, like 2am and found not a solitary espresso shop or restaurant open when I required something to eat or consume. Until now, the option of foods and beverage venues at the airport has also been incredibly minimal, ranging from a handful of speedy foods venues to 1 superior-end restaurant.
