Love the ever changing menu of brunch items here,coffee is ok although can be over burnt at times,still worth a visit for the decor and brunch!
I'll start with this as it is worth mentioning. This is bean hunter review. These beans from pope Joan, this coffee, is awful.
With that out of the way I'd also like to mention that I don't care.
When I go there I go there for the food. It is exceptional. The menu covers... Read more
Pope Joan can be exceedingly busy at times and waiting is sometimes necessary. This is because it is a lovely cafe and highly popular, especially with the locals. If you're in the area I would recommend it.
We dropped in quickly while driving through the area, and found it to be very busy. I was happy to see the menu had decent priced food, and a $3 espresso by Allpress, which was smoky.
If you ever wanted to try pork belly with scrambled eggs and a hazelnut salad, or crumbed coddled eggs with anchovies and black pudding, then look no further! A slightly left field menu manages to provide twists on regular combination (ie pork belly rather than bacon), and does not disappoint.
The coffee I had here was excellent - well made, with lots of complex nutty flavours coming through. I loved the decor and atmosphere, which has an elegant, understated look with plenty of natural timbers. The staff were friendly too.
Satisfied with my long mac.
Returned to the pope after a year and noticed it has increased in popularity and size, expanding into the adjoining property.
Coffee was well crafted service was excellent. Menu had interesting selection of breakfast fare. Choose carefully as not all dishes are thoughtfully created.... Read more
I've just had my first Allpress coffee and it is not disappointing at all. However, the coffee taste lack of strength and aftertaste flavor didn't stay too long. I love the open garden concept inside, and the artificial grass idea is really good. Will try to taste other Allpress cafe to compare.
Good coffee, nice and robust, friendly service and tasty food. Cool decor a little out of the ordinary is always a visual treat.
Very average. Massively overpriced based on what is in the cup and on the plate. So many better places to go that offer more for less.
Back again and loving it!
Very good coffee. Service was quick and friendly, albeit it was a slow period when we were there.
Awesome coffee! I had two back to back!! My partner said her soy latte was perfect.. Wish I lived closer, I'd be back all the time :)
Perfectly enjoyable coffee - takeaway is a double shot, definitely necessary
My first coffee was excellent but my second was not as good. The food was good and the staff very good. I'm going back.
Great setting with a pretty good coffee. The breakfast was delicious if a little small. I felt the coffee was a little under extracted leaving a slightly underwhelming finish on the palate. Milk was perfect though. Definitely worth a try.
Great place, good atmosphere & feel, excellent menu choice, but the coffee lacks the punch that would make it on par with the venue!
Honestly, I was thoroughly disappointed by this cafe. I was recommended it because it had a nice garden out the back, which it did, but the garden was not worth going back for when you considered the lack of friendliness and speed of the service we received. We were told we would only have to sit... Read more
i was so excited to find another Allpress cafe. My flat white was reliably tasty, god strength without any bitterness. Coffees are bigger than standard size, which really only leaves space for one with brekkie.
Meals were lovely and creative, though think the menu should be one descriptive... Read more
Delicious coffee and really friendly but not over bearing service. Yes, food is small and pricey but delish!
Had to wait 20 minutes for a table so was mightily thirsty when we finally got one! The food was small in portion, a little overpriced and using fancy ingredients (eg crab omelette) in a tasteless way Coffee was well made, although not brilliant - lacking that little bit of character in the blend.
Good coffee, reasonably strong with very little bitterness and perfectly textured milk. The place itself is very nicely fit out, and the food looked amazing. Definitely worth a visit
I was very disappointed in the service at this cafe, we went in on Sunday morning and the hostess was quite rude and unfriendly, maybe don't have someone hosting who struggles to smile and be pleasant. I won't be going back, Brunswick is full of amazing cafe's that we could go to and have... Read more
