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