This week we’re throwing it back to the north side of Canberra for a lunch specials focus on Belconnen. Whether you’re a uni student, public servant or a local in the area keep reading for some of the best meals in Belconnen at the lowest prices.

Bolt Bar 
68 Bandjalong Cres, Aranda

Just a hop, skip and a jump from the Belconnen CBD is Bolt Bar in Aranda. Serving up all your pub favourites in a fun-filled atmosphere, make sure you pop in for your end of week lunch time treat. On Friday, Bolt Bar offers a $15 steak sandwich or seafood special to start your weekend early.

The Lighthouse Pub 
78-80 Emu Bank, Belconnen

Not only a University of Canberra favourite, The Lighty also serves up a great lunch. With great meal prices and an ever-changing specials board, this is definitely one to try. Our favourite special in the place at the moment is the Boss’ Shout – order a meal from a different section of the menu each day of the week and receive a beer, wine or softy on the house!

Outback Jacks
Westfield Belconnen Shop 332 Benjamin Way, Belconnen

Outback Jacks in the Belconnen mall offers a slightly more substantial lunch. Nothing says office bonding like chats over a Jack’s Lunchtime Ripper! With a selection of wraps, burgers and meals from $9.95, try Jacks on your next lunch break.

Thai Chiang Rai 
102 Emu Bank, Belconnen

If you’re running out of time to order, pick up and sit down to eat your lunch then Thai Chiang Rai may be a great option for your next lunch time treat. With an option to pre-order online for ASAP pickup, you’ll have your favourite spring rolls and/or Pad Thai in no time at all.

Chong Co Restaurant
Westfield Belconnen 327A Lathlain St, Belconnen

Put your own dish together for as low as $12.50 at Chong Co Restaurant in Belconnen. At lunch the venue boasts a ‘select your own’ section of the menu for you to put your recipe-making skills to the test. Mix flavours, vegetables and meats to find your own lunch time special.

The Well at UC 
Telita Street University of Canberra, Belconnen

Drop into UC for a quick lunch at its newest watering hole, The Well. Looking at the menu you can pick up some decent eats for around the $10 mark every day of the week. Whether you’re in the mood for a burger, salad or sub, The Well has got you covered.

Black Pepper Café Bar 
63/1 Beissel St, Belconnen

Set yourself up outside on a sunny day at Black Pepper Café Bar. Overlooking the beautiful Lake Ginninderra, spend no more than $13 for lunch with Black Pepper’s special burger menu. Some personal favourites featured include the Pulled Pork and Black Pepper Burger. For an extra $2, the venue will also throw in a small coffee or soft drink with any burger special.

Bella Vista Italian Restaurant 

84 Emu Bank, Belconnen

Bella Vista understands that you’re busy at work and only have an hour (at the most) to enjoy one of its amazing dishes. Hence, the venue has enlisted the help of a pre-order form to ensure it gives you the most efficient service possible. We recommend trying on of the $15 classic pasta dishes.
