The Old Civic’s retro styling and trendy open plan decor is a welcome addition to Forestway Shopping Centre. You’ll be hard pressed to find anything like it in the area. It’s a popular hang out for mums and bubs during the week, who love the toy corner and the creative kids menu. If you are a fan of Americana fare such as hot dogs, burgers, pulled pork and Huevos Rancheros, you are in for a treat here!
If dining with little ones, a table inside is the best option (away from the car park). There are plenty of books, puzzles and toy cars to keep little ones busy. The kids breakfast is $7 and consists of eggs on toast or waffles with ice cream and maple syrup. The gorgeous teddy bear milkshake is a must try. The kids lunch is $10 and comes with fries or healthy raw vegetables sticks. The five delicious options are sure to please: chicken quesadilla; cheese quesadilla; hamburger; schnitzel; or hot dog.
The Old Civic is well known for its Americana and Mexican inspired menu. For breakfast, Loco Huevos is a westernised version of the Huevos Rancheros (toast stacked with poached eggs, chorizo, guacamole and tomato relish). You could also try the Civic Breakfast Tacos (soft flour tortillas with eggs, chorizo, corn salsa, guacamole and cheese). Don’t worry, they also have most of your brunch favourites too.
Come with an appetite for lunch, as there are not many salads in sight. Think hearty beef or schnitzel burgers; hot ‘dawgs’; and huge burritos. Don’t forget the counter display for their selection of baked goods, healthier treats and cold pressed juices.
