Barton is blessed with some great eateries serving the departmental workers close by, like Double Drummer (AGS)Ne Brindabella Cafe (DFAT).
But I think my favourite so far might be Barbers Inc. on the ground floor of Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.
It’s well priced, and the menu varies offering ever changing curry, pasta and soup lunch options.
The lighter option was a very tasty chicken and rice noodle soup with spinach and toast $5.90 for a very generous serve.
There are also nude burgers with extra salad on offer made ready made and made to order sandwiches.
Open weekdays 7am-5pm.
