“Fresh & Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

It took us a couple of days to be able to walk in and get a table here purely because its such a busy and popular eatery.
Great menu selection at reasonable prices.
Really good coffee & hot chocolate.
The two females seemed to be quite bubbly and have great service but the male, (possibly the owner?) appeared to be a little short and grumpy when other diners asked him questions, so that did put a bit of a downer to what was otherwise a lovely eatery.

“One of my faves!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

I love Old Man rock/Chicos! Start in Old Man for food and drinks and sit outside in the sun - lovely staff and great value for money make this place what it is. When the weather's not so nice, there's a massive fire inside and it's so cosy!
When it get's a bit later, head upstairs to Chicos where there's always a great atmosphere & live bands/DJ's.
My top tips:
1) The lunchtime toasted sandwich menu - best value lunch for $12.50 you get the biggest freshest tostie with your choice of insides and a massive plate of chips!
2) Ask for an "Atomic Mickey"!

“I like this place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

I enjoyed dining here. The first time I went in was just to have a glass of wine and coffee. I saw the food others were eating and had a look at the menu. It was inviting. I returned and had the lamb and pumpkin soup which was great.

The atmosphere is fine - there is a fire place which is cozy.

“Hearty sandwiches for lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

We stopped here for a chilled beer and sandwiches and were rewarded with a yummy and satisfying meal! The sun shone nice and bright and later we washed down our meal with a great cup of coffee. Nice place.....
