We have been here a couple of times. Nice and clean. Staff were friendly. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Great coffee. Will be back. Not far from Hawthorne cinemas so you could have a bit to eat before a movie.

This cafe popped up on my Facebook via Urban List as one of 12 places to eat breakfast in Brisbane. So glad we found it! Great menu variety, well patronized by locals (we're not locals), which is always a good sign. Proabably one of the best long black coffees I've had in a long time 😊 Will definitely go back... More

Pleasant lunch on a hot Queensland day with ceiling fans and air flow. Service good. Lunch choices were limited to burgers and salads though and as a vegetarian, that left me with a choice of one meal - a salad. All of the others were meat based. I asked if they could make up a vegetarian foccacia or wrap or... More

Nice range of brunch options available with healthy juices and smoothies. Green tea smithy with banana and honey was a pleasant surprise. Beetroot salad was very tasty, option to add salmon or lamb or chicken. Lamb sidestrap was brilliant with basalmic sauce, Persian feta, tomato, lettuce. Great coffee. Very good service.

Limited menu to what it use to be and not much "different" to try. Still a good breakfast and they have really good bacon but our server didn't know what sauce they'd put in my avocado. Having people on the floor that don't know the menu is poor management. My husbands breakfast came out with cold bread not even toast.... More

I've dined at Pompidou a few times for breakfast which I always enjoy. Recently I tried their lunch menu. Again the food was top notch and the service friendly and attentive. Thumbs up again for this busy little gem of deliciousness! Oh: I can recommend the prawn and crab roll for lunch served with lashings of French fries. Yum.

My husband and I come here for breakfast often, and it never disappoints. The coffee is good, the food is delicious, and the menu is great. They also offer a special dinner once a month which we haven't been to yet but are waiting to try

My wife and I did an anniversary breakfast and we enjoyed both our meals. I ordered the Mushrooms, with sun dried tomatoes, aioli, bread and runny egg. My wife ordered lunch food. Both were excellent, but breakfast food beat the lunch menu hands down. Coffee was excellent too. Only flip-side I can think is the money spent. Its not moderately... More
