Goma Cafe Bistro

South Brisbane

GOMA Café Bistro is South Brisbane cultural precinct’s best kept casual dining secret, tucked away underneath GOMA and overlooking the river and CBD skyline.

Weekend breakfast/brunch here is a real treat as are the designed-to-share lunches and all make for a perfect precursor or follow up to visiting the galleries. Best of all it doesn’t cost a bomb to partake in some delicious and creative food that is far superior to the usual gallery fare.
