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.
Bolt Bar 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
My fav place for awesome brunch choices with excellent service
Mothers day brunch was amazing. Food was great and the staff were friendly, pet friendly too so our pup got to meet some new friends
Overall great experience. Our bacon in our burgers wasn’t hot but was warm, overall a great experience and good service and good especially considering it was so busy for Mother’s Day
Great local suburb bar/restaurant. Services quiet drink, family feed or group very well.
I am a regular here and Tim and the staff always deliver a great experience with good food and drink options. The staff are super friendly and helpful.
This is a cute little venue, perfect for a nice quiet evening or a family dinner.
Happy and friendly staff were great.
I had a burger, chips and beer meal. The portions were good and the quality was excellent.
Great selection of locally sourced drinks!
I would eat here again.
Early-ish Saturday breakfast. Table location was not great, coffee came after the food arrived and we had to ask for our juice after 20 min of waiting, and for basics like butter for the toast and a straw for the juice. Menu said two rashes of bacon as a side order, one turned up.
Food was ok but nothing to go back for, though the coffee was good. Options for kids breakfast non existent.
Staff were friendly and happy, though seemed run off their feet and the interior could best be described as 'shabby rustic'.
Friendly flexible service combined with great food.
The Bolt bar is a friendly and reliable place for dinner. There are are a variety of simple tasty food to have with drinks.
Fantastic night out. Great atmosphere and good food. Staff were especially lovely. Thank you
Always friendly, great coffee and food, wonderful local.
Great food and excellent service. A very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Great $20 steak and salad. Fillet, medium rare, excellent.
I always enjoy Two before Ten. Great set up, awesome coffee, and really interesting and different menu options. Food is consistently good and value for money.
Bustling & lively venue. Very friendly & obliging staff, fabulous coffee and great food. Good, central location. I’d suggest booking, especially later in the week
The food and coffee is excellent. Service hit and miss. Our lovely sunny, attentive waitress of a few weeks ago was on front counter and we had a completely different experience. I would say our waitress on Sunday was rude. It was impossible to get a follow up coffee after the first one, also we didn't feel like it given sullen waitress. At a place where coffee is this good waitstaff should be getting at least 2 coffees out of each die hard customer.
Well weordered an entree and specifically asked for it to be served as an entree but as perviously when i saw the adjacent being served mains and entree at the sam time i decided to cancell our entree and aye only the maons
Why put entree on the menu if you dont serve it as an entree. Very sloppy cooking in my opinion.
Eggs over cooked and to salty. Service great and coffee nice.
Tuesday night, steak night special; just brilliant which adds to the pleasure of going out for dinner.
Had a great service experience and the 3 staff we spoke to throughout the visit were all helpful nice and happy
