Hands down one of the best cafes in West End! Bacon cooked to perfection and the hollandaise is to die for!

For some reason I have only ever had breakfast here. The current incarnation of the prawn omelet is very good. Although the wasabi Mayonnaise is a bit off putting as it's more blue than green, but it tastes fine. There have been several versions of this dish. This is one of best versions. I also enjoy their blood sausage dish.... More

On a recent trip to Brisbane this cafe was recommended to us by the valet parking attendant at our hotel in Queen Street mall. We made the 20+ minute walk to the Gunshop Cafe and worked up an appetite for a good breakfast. The cafe manager showed us to a large table with high chairs at the rear courtyard of... More

Great cafe, visited for breakie just after New Years. Can't get over how good the breakfast was - we had the French toast and potato gem things. Coffee was on point as well!

Saw the reviews on trip advisor and decided to go. Great cafe and food was amazing. The menu is extensive from breaky and lunch with burgers, seafood and everything in between. Our table has the fish, pork belly, mussels and lamb burger, no complaints at all. Staff were also super friendly. Definitely give this cafe a go.

Attentive staff. Original menu. Comfortable dining area. Delicious coffee. We were happy, but some may find the portions a bit small. Will definately go back.

We went there for a celebration lunch after our daughter's graduation ceremony. Restaurant's decor was rustic and ambience was casual comfy. Service staff were very attentive and professional. We ordered (1) whole baby barramundi fish (2) minute steak and (3) lamb burger. Our fav dish, barramundi fish. Fish was very fresh, deboned and flavoring was perfect. I highly recommend this...

Nice to see a breakfast menu that has new and different options available. Our meals were tasty and good value. Service was a different story- owner who served us looked scruffy, stressed and didn't write our order down so after asking twice had to come back a third time to confirm. My daughters order was forgotten however they did kindly... More
