West End’s The Gunshop Cafe Expands With New Location In Toowong

One of Brisbane’s most popular all-day breakfast cafes, The Gunshop Cafe has opened a new location in a 300-sqm space in Toowong.

The new location, launched in January 2021, takes over the space once occupied by Maria Caribbean Kitchen. It will be the second for the cafe – its original store opened at a former pistol peddler at Mollison St in West End nearly two decades ago.

The Gunshop Cafe in Toowong has the same rustic feel of the original cafe. The space bathes in natural light, thanks to the giant windows plus there are banquet seatings and touches of wood everywhere. 

But one of the highlights is its open kitchen design, which allows diners to see the food being prepared. There’s a coffee bar at the center, where baristas prepare the coffee using their own blend of beans. A spacious dining area is also waiting for those who prefer al fresco dining.

The cafe, known for its all-day breakfast menu, features customer favourites from the existing restaurant, such as the pork, apple & sage sausage, quinoa & soy bread, and their perfectly poached eggs, that’s included in many of their items, such as the pulled pork and benedict.

The menu comes with a “something special” section which features items like cookies and cream hotcake, breakfast bowl, lambs fry and bacon, pulled pork, and omelette.

A visit at The Gunshop Cafe will not be complete without tasting their coffee, though iced drinks and tea are also on offer. Alcohol is not yet offered but they announced that it will be added soon.

The new Gunshop Cafe is located at 48 Jephson St, Toowong and operates seven days a week. The all-day breakfast menu is served 7:00 am to 3:00 pm whilst lunch is available from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. You can check them out on Facebook or on Instagram @thegunshopcafe for updates.
