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

Had dinner at this cafe on Friday night. I can only compliment the owners and staff on the total package offered. Food was excellent. Service was both attentive and professional and the overall ambience of the cafe was warm and friendly. I'll definitely visit again. Just a tip. Leave room for dessert.

Not many reviews start off with a quote from the Bible, but this verse from 1 Thessalonians, Chapter 5 Is so appropriate to our experience at The Gun Shop Cafe and how we came to be there!! We were a group of 6 ladies from Western Australia, in Brisbane for a 4 day conference. A really fun one, but exhausting... More

Just visited the Gunshop Cafe for brunch and was delighted with the service and the friendliness of the new owners. I require Gluten Free foods as I am coeliac and a lot of places are very haphazard when preparing this. After discussing this with the owner, I was confident I wouldn't end up sick. The toast was even baked in... More

The atmosphere was nice and everyone's dietary requirements are catered for, gluten free, vegetarian etc. From the reviews, I was expecting a bit more but I wouldn't bag it and I will be back. Reasonably priced as well.

It had been quite a while since my last visit and Gunshop never disappoints. This place is a West End institution and remains consistent throughout the years. I caught up with a friend and we were there for ages. I had the classic potato and feta hash cakes and my friend had the special, the brioche French toast. Both were... More

We were looking for the place. Only one lunch in Brisbane and was chosen in advance because its good reviews. The atmosphere was espectacular, relaxing after a touristic morning. Staff very friendly. Menu quite short and expensive. We took fish dishes very nice presented... but almost tasteless

Three of us arrived early n Friday night at The Gunshop, after not having visited there in years. We were surprised that the place was quiet. It has, after all, been a West End institution. We were welcomed warmly and seated immediately. Within a couple of minutes we were nursing generous glasses of wine and perusing the compact menu. While... More
