Motorwagen is a stunning contemporary cafe, restaurant and bar found in Brisbane’s CBD, offering a refined dining experience for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
This 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.
Start your lunch or dinner with fermented pumpkin carpaccio or Masterstock lamb ribs that will leave you wanting more. Mouth-watering lunch dishes include Motorwagen classics: beer battered fish and chips, Wagen burger with scamozza cheese, and a juicy Black Angus steak sandwich on rye served with hand cut chips.
Meanwhile, breakfast fare on offer is simple and well executed - think avocado on rye, egg and bacon breaky burger, eggs scrambled, poached or fried with house-made sourdough - served along with Motorwagen granola and whipped coconut yoghurt or Eggs Benzy (poached eggs on sourdough with brown butter hollandaise and your choice of bacon or gin-cured salmon).
Boasting Brisbane’s first state-of-the-art Modbar espresso and pour-over system by La Marzocco, Motorwagen offers locally roasted Wolff Coffee. Otherwise, there are specialty lattes, organic loose leaf teas, classic fruit juices and kombucha.
The exquisite dinner menu includes delicious entrees such as fermented pumpkin carpaccio and Masterstock lamb ribs; while main dishes include sirloin, cheek croquette, greens and wattle jus; quail, mole, young carrot, charred plum and fermented garlic honey; and brown miso falafel with spiked babaganoush and coyo labna.
The divine dessert list includes passionfruit semi-freddo with coconut and wattle crisp. Otherwise, savour a selection of Australian and international artisan cheeses with wattle seed lavosh and preserves.
Motorwagen is fully-licensed with local craft beer on tap, a carefully curated wine list, and classic cocktails.
Good to know – A private dining room is available for functions and private events with vintage-inspired Mercedes-Benz murals painted by a local artist.
