Fantastic breakfast and coffee, Great service, Fast paced on all occasions I've visited. Hasn't failed me yet. Do yourself a favour and try it even just once.

Had the Haloumi Stack with rosti and a rocket salad. The rosti wasn't really rosti and was extremely greasy. Couldn't eat it. The salad would have been great, but it was drowning in the dressing. Seriously swimming- and that's a very easy thing to avoid. The Haloumi stack, which comes with 2 poached eggs, was pretty good. A bit salty,... More

This is a 3 piece pub by the looks with atmosphere. Popular eating/drinking hole and one of the better places in the Valley from what I saw. I had the Steak Sandwich which took a little while to receive considering there were not that many patrons. When it arrived I couldn't believe the amount of sauce - too much in... More

We just had brunch at Fatboys & thoroughly enjoyed the generous & flavoursome food. The young man in the Zeppelin T was very friendly & efficient. We'll definitely be back👍

Haven't been here for some time but thought we'd have a coffee which was just fine although overpriced. Then we made the mistake of ordering pancakes which arrived cold and almost dry. Then learned that pancakes are cooked in the morning and served 2nd hand all day!!! More attention to housekeeping wouldn't hurt. Hygiene standards are important everywhere.

It's a tradition of ours to have Fat Boy's breakfast in Fortitude Valley every time we visit Brisbane. Years ago, it was the cheapest and the best. Now you have to buy a coffee to get the $5 breakfast but still a very good deal. Service is quick and cheerful, food yummy and good coffee. The atmosphere of the Valley,... More

We got to China Town nice and early and stumbled onto Fat Boys and decided to have breakfast there. We had the Breakfast special and we enjoyed it. Good servings and nice coffee. Didn't stay hot for long but it was pretty cold and windy that morning.

We're here right now for breakfast. Yesterday I got a grilled toastie with ham and cheese and a big flat white for 6,90$ at another place... Here we get the same, fruit salad from the day before and dirty tables for more than dobbled priced. It's not nice to eat an old fruit salad from a sticky table with beer... More
