Oxford Street is awash with coffee but, in my opinion at least, not all cups are created equal. I don't drink a lot of coffee so when I do, it really matters that it is good. There's nothing like a smooth, rich coffee and, thankfully, that's what you'll find at Park Bench Espresso Bar.
Attached to Green Grass Home & Body and across the street from Bulimba Memorial Park, Park Bench Espresso Bar is perfectly positioned to cater to families frequenting the popular park. It's a great escape for parents to duck over the road to grab a takeaway whilst their little footie stars are training. During the week plenty of parents with prams stop off to collect their coffee before heading over to the play area.
You don't have to take-away of course, the bar offers just as the name suggest, a perfect bench for those that have time to savour their coffee and read the paper. Thoughtfully there are also paper and pens provided to keep kids occupied so that the 'coffee moment' can be enjoyed in relative peace.
There's a good selection of muffins and treats provided daily and the caramel slice I tasted on my last visit was superb. A very generous sized slab meant that it could be shared without remorse and still left me feeling guilty of overindulging.
