Chapter IV is a chic café with a touch of Asian flavour and fantastic vistas atop a Paddington hill, and the fourth foodie establishment* of savvy owner Alyssa.
Located in the landmark historic store at Trammies Corner, Chapter IV serves a scrumptious all day breakfast daily an eclectic tempting lunch menu with Oz, Asian and Middle-Eastern flavours.
As well as dining in the spacious high-ceilinged rooms, the prized spot is the back verandah with its sweeping Brisbane vistas, featuring a couple of hanging egg chairs as well as a line-up of Parisian café chairs along a communal bench. Adjacent to the verandah there’s also a dedicated playroom with toys for children, making Chapter IV one of Brisbane’s most child-friendly cafes.
