We visited for dinner and ordered a few entrees to share and mains each. Attention to detail in the plating and the food was delicious and great value for money. Service attentive and friendly. I would recommend the steak and lamb. My husband said it was the best cooked steak he has ever had. The kale chicken quinoa salad was... More

Some restaurants serve up interesting dishes but the gun shop (was once a gun shop) Serves up dishes that other establishments only wish they could conjure up. I am sure their success is more than replicated by other restaurants.

We were unsure what to expect, but while this 'cafe' was crowded, the service and food was fantastic. The serves were just of the right size. While the lunch menu was not big it certainly had a nice variety. Do not go if you expect 'pub' food. The dessert menu was a hard decision as many favourites but with a... More

Had breakfast here. The prawn asian omelette was divine. Appreciated the breakfast menu with some different options to most other cafes.

The food here is delicious ! We popped in for lunch and weren't disappointed with the minute steak and the chicken quinoa salad followed by the divine chocolate flourless cake. The decor is inviting and the outdoor area fabulous for groups. Can't wait to go back

On advice from my 21 year old daughter, I brought a visiting family member here for brunch. The menu is unique and delicious. The service is excellent and the ambiance of the cafe is rustic but modern, friendly and welcoming, with a choice if indoor or outdoor dining options. I will definitely be back to try their lunch and dinner... More

I used to come here quite often but many new cafes are around these days and haven't came here for long time. I had a brunch on Sunday, All tables were full, still so popular. Even that busy, all staff were very friendly and I didn't have to wait for my meal for long time. Not only excellent service but... More

We were recommended to The Gunshop Cafe by a client who was a Chef and we figured "a Chef should Know", right! So in West End looking a good meal, after a long day And he was So right! From the moment we walked, the service was impeccable. Friendly, happy waiters, who added pleasure to selecting drinks and menu choices.... More

Saturday morning breakfast was busy. Table outside a little noisy but cooler than inside. Coffee is Merlo which is not the most imaginative but the long black was well made. Pork, apple and sage sausage disk was a little on the sweet side - sweet sausage, sweet match, sweet honey mustard dressing. The sour of the sauerkraut didn't really cut... More
