Bear & Bean
This hip, funky, quirky cafe serves high quality food and a lot of ‘tude. Tucked away in a small corner, it looks slightly shabby, but don’t judge this book by its cover. On the inside, there’s a warm environment with glowing lights and a very stylish roof that’s covered with everything and anything. Take a break and hide away in this delightful haven.
Avocado melts into my tongue, paired with crunchy bacon and toast. I stare up at the roof and gaze upon messages and quotes, pictures and signs. Laughing and smiling, a blackboard catches my eye, and I grin even more widely. Staff come over and chat, explaining how long it took to design the roof, draw it and construct it. I relax into the chair and feel a deep wave of calm splash over me.
