The Garner

West End

The Garner is a cool, casual cafe in West End serving specialty coffee along with delicious Asian-inspired brunch fare.  

Located on Browning Street, away from the hustle and bustle of Boundary Street, this hidden gem offers relaxed al fresco dining in a covered courtyard and inside a quaint renovated Queensland cottage.
