I've discovered a few great places in Epping recently and over the weekend, I found another place to add to my list. Pablo & Rusty's is just across the road from Epping Station and can be recognised by the bold black & white outer. I've driven past a couple of times, curious about what they had and finally on the weekend (for the purposes of going to Sweetness), J&I decided to pop in to check it out.
Between J&I, I tend to be the one that's keen on trying new places. I think it's a girl thing...every guy I know seems to be reluctant to try any place new and prefer to stick to places they've been to or have at least been recommended. As I zoomed in on Pablo & Rusty's, J was slowly walking behind through the door, continuing to ask me 'Are you sure you want to eat here?' Even as I was about to order, I was still hearing the mumbles of 'We can eat elsewhere if you want'. What can I say...
People were in and out getting their coffees so it was only fitting to order one myself. My usual flat white with a Chicken, cheese, sundried tomato & rocket toasted turkish sandwich. The bread was lightly toasted just as I like it! Coffee was good too!
J goes for a burger and a chocolate milkshake. I still remember the time we went The Meat & Wine Co. for a nice dinner and I had this one order a chocolate milkshake! Anyway, J highly recommends the chocolate milkshake here, just the right thickness and chocolateyness!
I enjoyed my sandwich and J equally enjoyed his burger. As you can probably see, the serving sizes aren't huge but will just get you full. Price wise, we paid about $10 each which I thought was quite reasonable. As for the rest of the menu, there's more sandwiches, breakfasts and your usual cafe items - nothing by way of special but a solid selection done well (which I think is the most important thing).
The great thing about this place is the abundance of magazines! Shame all the large tables were taken and we were stuck at a two seater that couldn't fit a whole lot once our food got to the table. I could've easily spent the rest of the day there reading away!
