Where is Beartown Coffee House?

Beartown Coffee House can be found hanging out in Woolloongabba - or, as locals call it, the Gabba! Woolloongabba is located just 2km from Brisbane's central business district, making it the perfect place for city-workers to stop by and grab a cup of great coffee to kick start the day. Being near the City also makes Beartown Coffee House convenient for those who rely on public transport - there really is no better place for a cafe to be located really!

What is the ambience of Beartown Coffee House like?

Despite being so close to the City, Beartown Coffee House exudes a relaxing vibe which is in stark contrast to its busy surroundings, where the hustle and bustle of city life takes place. True to its name, Beartown Coffee House is literally a town of bears; from small bear toys to even the wallpaper (which has a cute bear print). In fact, Beartown Coffee House takes an interesting twist on traditional 'waiting numbers' - here, 'waiting numbers' are letters that together spell out the name of the cafe. What a great idea!

Bears, bears everywhere!

Oh, and there is also a giant brown bear hiding in the corner who goes by the name of Al...

What seating is available at Beartown Coffee House?

There is both indoor and outdoor seating available at Beartown Coffee House. Those who opt to sit indoors will be sharing the space with Al the bear, in addition to the friendly staff behind the counter. There are both traditional wooden cafe tables available, in addition to more comfortable couches, complete with bear cushions! Oh, and feel free to grab yourself a newspaper or two, to enjoy with your morning coffee.

Those beary nice looking cushions also look beary soft...


The outdoor seating at Beartown Coffee House is at the front of the cafe, providing patrons with views of the busy streets of Woolloongabba - it's a great spot for people watching! There is also plenty of shade available; coupled with a refreshing breeze, you'll find the outdoor seating comfortable even on hotter days. The ground is covered with astroturf grass, which is great for those with little ones who might want to sit down and play, or for those with dogs who might want to lie down on something soft.

From where does Beartown Coffee House source their coffee beans?

Beartown Coffee House's great coffee is developed in partnership with Bear Bones Espresso who provides the coffee beans. According to them, "we are the company that creates the beans, to help the means, to build a community" - their goal is to build a community of like minded people whom all share the knowledge to helping each other grow successfully. To do this, Bear Bones Espresso has systems in place to control the whole process, "from Crop to Cup" - every part of the business is controlled to ensure that the quality they are known for remains consistent.
