A new religion? Pope Joan café, Brunswick

Pope Joan is one of the newest additions to the ever-expanding offerings to the foodies of Brunswick. And, as far as I am concerned, it ticks all the right boxes.

Pope Joan is located not far from the busy Brunswick Rd./ Nicholson St. intersection. It has a non-descript façade that makes it a little bit tricky to find if you are not sure what you are looking for.

Once located, however, Pope Joan is well worth the journey with all elements of the café displaying a thoughtful attention to detail that foodies in Brunswick have come to expect. The décor is relaxed with lovely little touches such as the tailored crockery accompanying each item of the menu and the beautiful, enameled jugs used to serve water.

The menu is a treat to behold, the ingredients having being sourced from independent producers from all around Victoria: muscles from Point Lonsdale; goats' feta from Meredith; freshly squeezed juices from the Vic Market; to nettle and sorrel from the well tended herb garden at the back of the café. There are several good options for vegetarians, slightly more limited for vegans.

Similar attention has been paid to the beer and wine menu, with a small but esoteric selection on offer.

There is plenty of seating, which is just as well as the café is deservedly popular. You may experience a wait if you do not arrive early on weekends. Having said that, the staff are friendly and efficient and the wait should not be too tiresome.

For more information, or to contact Pope Joan directly please connect to the Pope Joan website.
