    I have been several times, so you must be doing something right, but yesterday was very noisy. It was very cold in there, I was toasty warm when I arrived, by the time I left my hands and feet were cold, that said, it is Canberra. In the famous words of Arnie “l’ll be back”.

    Our only problem was that it was very cold. We did not notice the stack of blankets near the door, till we were leaving. Had we been able to warm ourselves, everything would have been terrific.

    This is one of our favourite places but yesterday disappointed us all round, service was rushed and patchy. The special was pretty ordinary with undercooked chips and very little sandwich filling for the price. Staff did give us new chips and offer a drink when we raised it but realistically shouldn’t leave a kitchen like that. Quite cold even inside so rug up!

    This Cafe has become my favourite. The service is always warm and friendly and it is so much fun working our way through the menu. The fact that all their produce is fresh and often sourced on-site or within the region shows in the amazing food. Cannot recommend enough!

    Was very busy and very noisy. Some menu items unavailable but staff helpful in finding out what was available. Staff way, way too busy - took an hour for our meals to arrive. Despite this the food was enjoyable, but the overall experience wasn't what we're used to. Coffee was excellent though. Hope it was a one-off due to being so, so busy.

    My girlfriend and I went to Two Before Ten Aranda & 10 Yards on a Friday night for dinner. We shared the cured meats and cheese to start and then shared the confit chicken Maryland and the mushroom ragout. For dessert we shared the bread and butter pudding with ice cream and butterscotch sauce. The meals were fabulous. We enjoyed them. Each was prepared and cooked well. The chicken was fall from the bones tender and the skin was perfect. We loved the beans and sauna sage. Having the mushroom ragout with it was a nice pairing. My girlfriend also had a glass of wine and a glass of beer which were to her liking. My only problem is personal, I suffer from tinnitus and the noise levels were quite high making it difficult for me to enjoy conversation. I think fellow tinnitus sufferers would experience the same problem which is not unique to this restaurant. Knowing the produce used is fresh and local makes up for any inconvenience 😊
