“This is my favourite coffee shop in West End. There are many along Montague Road, however I walk the ten minutes to get this coffee. It's uniquely 'Brisbane', is a little bit of a whole in the wall in terms of 'no frills', yet it's a definite. My favourite place for Breakfast (and also serving exceptional coffee), is The Gun Shop. It is located within an old Gun Shop, and is a Brisbane institution.”

Café
“ The menu is wonderfully eclectic, and even if similar dishes are featured, the new twists are always exciting. The black garlic bread is the standout dish everyone should try. Another favourite of mine was the parsnip with chocolate & blood sauce on the previous menu, and recently I tried the Angus sirloin, which is simply divine! Tender, full of the most amazing flavour and cooked to perfection.”
