Bear Bones Espresso (Brisbane, QLD, AUS)

Transitioning from my life in Brisbane, Queensland, to New Orleans has been quite hectic, but good at the same time.  I've been M.I.A. from Edesian Feast for a while, but as I gradually settle in to my apartment, I hope to keep updating even as my schedule gets busy (as it is already!).  My posts will probably contain less text and more photos - at least that is what I anticipate...

Numerous cafes and bars in Brisbane opened up near the end of the year, including a new establishment by the owners of The Cobbler and numerous Brisbane hotspots by the name of Bear Bones Espresso.  I had the chance of meeting one of my Yelpers at this hip cafe sandwiched between shops on Mclachlan Street in the Valley.

Colorful graffiti sets the ambience of this modern industrial cafe that is set out to roast their own coffee beans.  Since my visit about a month ago, they may have very well started to already!  Deciding on the avo toast and the pulled pork sandwich between me and my friend, we also each ordered a milkshake.  My chocolate milkshake, which came in the traditional cup, though not as thick as an American milkshake, was a rich chocolate that wasn't overwhelmingly sweet.  Still, it was a bit, and I would advise sharing one with someone.  The avo toast was delicious, as the bread was fresh, and the presentation wasn't lacking either.  The pulled pork sandwich, recommended by Kurtis the barista, was also flavorful, though not quite flavored like an American pulled pork sandwich.  The portion was also quite generous, which is always a plus.  The service was awesome, and I would definitely recommend this place for those living in Brissy!

  1. Hi Tammy!

    I have never heard of Bear Bones Espresso but that Pulled Pork Sandwich has me drooling so much I'm definitely going to pop in next time I'm in town.

    I work for Pizza Capers, and if you like Pulled Pork you'll love our new campaign. I'd love to talk to you about it and how you could get involved, so can you please shoot me an email at so we can chat?

    Look forward to hearing from you,
