Brisbane CBD


Motorwagen is a stunning contemporary cafe, restaurant and bar found in Brisbane’s CBD, offering a refined dining experience for breakfast and lunch. 

The sophisticated city eatery features a striking, industrial chic fit-out – think exposed brick and concrete. Customers can dine al fresco on the terrace overlooking Adelaide Street or in the stylish dining room featuring burnt orange banquette seating.

Breakfast fare on offer is simple and well executed - think avocado on rye, egg and bacon breaky burger, and bacon and eggs on sourdough - served along with Motorwagen granola with whipped coconut yoghurt or Eggs Benzy (poached eggs on sourdough with brown butter hollandaise and your choice of bacon or gin-cured salmon).
