While Urban Pantry shares much in common with Me & Mrs Jones, The Public Bar and Cream, it really does have the nicest setting (especially in the good weather) and arguably the best menu for lunch.
In fact it’s hard to pick from so many delicious sounding salads, gourmet burgers and grills, and that’s without even looking at the great changing specials on the wall inside.
The Urban Nicoise is not only delicious and delightfully light but also very beautiful ($21) with poached salmon, heirloom tomatoes, green beans, potato, an olive and tuscan onion salsa and aioli.
The Straighty 180 is a good choice for something more filling and traditional ($19) with a 180gm beef patty, mustard, onion marmalade, gherkins, ketchup and cheddar on a brioche bun.
Like Me & Mrs Jones, The Public Bar and Cream, Urban Pantry is open 7 days and Canberra Entertainment Book holders are offered two meals for the price of one making it good value.
Like Me & Mrs Jones, BYO wine is $5.50 corkage per person. Cakeapge is $2.50 per person.
Urban Pantry is very popular on the weekends so do book to get a table overlooking the lawns if it’s a lovely day.
(There is a surcharge of 10% for Sundays and 15% for public holidays).
Monday-Tuesday 7:00am – 6pm
