Welcome to Pope Joan

So, who’s this Pope Joan? Maybe you’ve heard of her – the medieval legend, the woman who passed as a man? These days she runs a bustling precinct of eating and drinking at 77 – 79 Nicholson Street, East Brunswick in Melbourne, Australia.

Matt Wilkinson is chef and owner of Pope Joan, much loved for its homely dishes – led by locally grown, seasonal produce – with a distinctly British twist. Since opening its doors back in 2010, it has evolved from a daytime café to a bustling space with a bar, dining room as well as being a very popular spot for weddings and private functions – This Pope sure knows how to throw together a good ol shindig and we love being a part of the fun!


The Pope serves our punters breakfast, lunch, sweet treats, daily specials and the best Bloody Mary this side of the Yarra 7-days-a–week from 7:00am to 3:00pm.

If a backyard party with top notch nosh and a beverage list that is ensured to delight and excite is what you are all about, then a visit to one of our Summer Camp Cookouts with Mr. Wilkinson is a must. Pop in Wednesday – Friday nights from 6pm and get in to it!
