We try to come to the Gunshop as a family as often as we can. The outside area has a large table that seats out extended family of 10 easily. Brunch is always reliably good, and a walk on Boundary Road after that allows us to visit some of the independent shops there.

This cafe has a nice ambience, good service, an interesting menu, and tasty food. That's everything I look for, but in addition it is good value.

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

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.
