Always a pleasure at 2 before 10. The food and coffee are excellent and the service friendly and prompt.
My first time at Two before Ten as I have just moved to Canberra. Really enjoyed my birthday breakfast and particularly my coffee. It was a lovely way to start the day!
Great venue to catchup!! Not too noisy!!
I had soup which I didn’t like the taste- staff fabulous and relayed this back to the kitchen- no charge for soup and offers of anything else freely given.
I will be back!!
I had a lovely lunch here. The service was exceptional and food was amazing with a reasonable price tag. I highly recommend and will be looking forward to my next visit.
Great coffee and great vibes - best spot for brunch in Belconnen
They make great coffee but I was disappointed in the service. Pleasant waiting staff but not that attentive - took ages to get the coffee, it was good when it finally arrived
The Ricotta cake was a cupcake and nothing to get excited about
I would recommend the coffee
Disappointed with my food on this occasion. Coffee always great but my serving of chilli scrambled eggs was stingy. That’s the only way to describe the $16 portion on this visit. If I was paying $10 no problem but $16 - no. Not happy.
Some noise dampening on Walls, Ceiling and Floors would be helpful. Very uncomfortable noise levels!
The staff went out of their way accommodate our requirements. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The coffee was of the usual high standard: perfect temperature, full flavoured without any bitterness. We will be returning!
My local and I like it. Although don’t understand name change. Will always be Bolt Bar.
Food was delicious and so was the coffee. Great range of dishes to choose from. Friendly service.
Food was a little undercooked. Table service doesn’t seem necessary.
The coffee is perfect and the service wonderful, I wish I could order a cheese burger though for lunch.
On a miserably cold morning, it was warm throughout the venue. The service, as always, was impeccable. The coffee was great, and the atmosphere friendly. The best place for coffee and breakfast in town!
Was good, as usual, but coffees were a only lukewarm.
Great cafe, good atmosphere, will definitely return!
It seems booking well in advance and having teenagers with you seems to get you the table that is the furtherest away from an area with any vibe. Perhaps if the place was full and we just turned up without booking then…maybe we should have felt valued by our repeat custom getting us the safest seats being crammed inta corner with a fire hose and a fire extinguisher.
It was good although we waited a very long time to be served. Probably 40 minutes. As in, we were seated but nobody came to take our order. After 40 minutes of waiting we hailed a waitress. And the waitress wasn’t happy about it. Otherwise the meal was lovely and so was the company.
Service was friendly and prompt, nice family friendly venue with a good menu. Will be back.
Always had great potential and this has been improved by the new menu. We had the fish and nasi goreng which were both great. We found that it was a bit cool in the back seating area but otherwise a great evening. Also, would be great to have a stout or porter on tap.
A cold Tuesday night in Canberra, and it was mulled wine, cab sauv and steaks - excellent way to spend an hour or so.
Great place, friendly staff and good service. A good vibe about the place. I would and do recommend it the people.
The staff are lovely, the food is good, the coffee is fantastic. Easy to get some good advice on blends for whatever you drink. It is easy to see why this is one of the most popular eateries/cafes in the ACT.
Ten Yards Only: Such a shame. Have been to this restaurant and bar many times and food/service was always great, but not tonight. Be aware: there has been a change in management. Menu has changed too. Ordered the miso eggplant and nasi goreng tonight. Tough, dry eggplant and rice dry also. Quite awful really. Just about no flavour. Didn't eat my meal. Will go elsewhere for dinner next time.
It seems that the owners have changed? Totally different menu - food was dismal, aubergine and nasi goring inedible, nothing at all like nasi goring and the aubergine was uncooked. Beef burger was raw in the middle. We have been coming to the Bolt Bar for years so very disappointed that the food is so poor now.
Food, very good. Table arrangement/spacing, on the cramped side. Diners by number, too many. Service (given table set-up & numbers of diners), OK. Ambience, barely OK even for breakfast. Value, OK.
Bare in mind please that I am a 1942 model !!!
Great food, great coffee, great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.
Bit disappointing- Sunday night and not a lot on the menu. Burgers very disappointing.
Drinks were flat at bolt bar.
Food was cold and bland at 2 before 10
Good Cafe quality food with an emphasis on vegetables and breakfast style menu. Great coffee.
Had the Apple and current toast with espresso butter, it was amazing along with the coffee and service
Great place for brunch with friends or a catch up coffee with a friend. Delicious menu options and lovely chai tea to enjoy.
The salad bowl has a really strange taste to it. I would recommend you try it, I don’t think it tastes right.
Was recommended to me for a breakfast/brunch destination and it did not disappoint on any front- coffee is amazing and the food fresh, tasty and sustainably sourced. Service was attentive and super friendly. Bravo, we will be back.
Excellent service and food, great choice of beer on taps and local wines.
Two before Ten is one of my favourite cafés. The coffee is good, the service friendly and the food delicious.
Always a good spot - great daily specials during the week and an especially good new menu item: beef pie; super!
We've had our book club at Bolt Bar for a couple of years.
This time we had a few more people than we had booked for and boy did they get angry, we were happy to squish around the table, which was tucked right out of the way anyway (and was cold with no heating). We were happy to put up with this but the attitude and rudeness of the staff was unbelievable, I have not experienced anything like it. Rude to everyone that arrived, then (the manager?) thought it was ok to come and tell us off in a rude and demeaning way. I'm sure he wouldn't have done this to a group of men.
We wont be going back and wont be recommending Bolt Bar. Previously we had overlooked wrong orders, orders that never arrived, but all of our group felt this was going too far. An adjoining table was vacated about 20 mins after we arrived, but there was no offer to move there instead. When the drinks arrived and we said we were ready to order food we were told that they were too busy with lots of people and they werent sure when they'd get back to us.
Bye Bolt Bar, we won’t miss your rude ways, plenty more place to go to.
Terrific fillet steak on $20 steak night! Best ever crisp chips and generous salad. Very busy for Tuesday so a little noisier than expected, but obviously a thriving venue. Thanks!
Love my local Cafe! Two Before Ten is always a great spot to catch up with friends
