We had brunch there again. have been back a few times in the last year. It was still nice. Not busy. It still uses Pablo and Rusty beans and the taste of the coffee is excellent with a really nice long palate. (I like P&B beans), The food was good as usual. Service was ok. Nice relaxed atmosphere.

I have tried just about every place offering coffee in Epping. Out of all of them, this place is where you should get it from. Starts at 6am during the week and offers pastries and sandwiches. Conveniently located across from epping station.

I should keep Alpha (formerly Pablo and Rusty's) a secret for locals only but I have to admit it is one of our favourite places for coffee. The change of name and ownership did not change the quality of the coffee at all but it did bring a breath of fresh air to the food menu. The BEATS (bacon, egg,... More

Best coffee in Epping! Sit up the back and chill! Enjoy the music, the darkened room, the artwork, the couches. Lovely. Just wish they had wifi!

I have purchased a variety of beans from the Pablo and Rusy chain. All of which brew nicely using an Aeropress. I love the coffee here that's for sure! The decor is inviting with an earthy undertone and modern flair. Staff have always been more than helpful and quite friendly on all occasions. Located right opposite Epping trainstation, you can't...

Pablo & Rusty's is just across the street from Epping railway station, making it ideal as a meeting place when picking up someone getting off the train. It's also a great place to walk to on a weekend for a coffee and a bite to eat. Our usual visit is for brunch on a Sunday, and one of these days... More

I came here for breakfast and ate the spiced granola and had a large coffee; both of which were delicious. Staff were very friendly and service was prompt. The decor is a little dated and in need of updating (eg. paint peeling, worn tables and chairs). There is very limited outdoor seating and they do not take reservations, though luckily... More

Loved the coffee, the place was quite busy. Found the breakfast attractively served and very yummy but perhaps small servings given the price.
