Take things slowly at Bean on Dean, Toowong
Many breakfast spots these days can be all hustle and bustle. With chatter in the air and sardine-like table arrangements, these popular, crowded spaces aren’t ideal for a little morning Zen time. But at Bean on Dean in Toowong, you will find yourself instantly relaxing as the cool autumn breeze whispers past and you sink into the recycled coffee sack ottomans out the front.
While still a busy breakfast nook of families, lady-date catch-ups and rolled-out-of-bed students, Bean on Dean has a peaceful ambience positioned in the back streets of Toowong.
Serving up simple fare without going easy on flavour, there’s also a large list of choices for gluten-intolerant tummies. Choose the Kerfuffle (avocado, Danish feta, rocket, olive oil and balsamic) or the Flabbergast (walnut, ricotta and cream cheese spread with prosciuotto, rocket and beetroot and sumac relish) on sourdough, rye or gluten-free rice and pumpkin bread, or the Hodge Podge spelt, maple and almond muesli with honey, Greek yoghurt, fresh berries and a side of milk.
Light, easy and with humourous names, match your breakfast with a Campos coffee and a spot of reading. With cage lighting and industrial wood and metal tables, contrasted by jars of herbs and plants on the tables, a street-art wall mural and vintage cotton spools for table numbers, Bean on Dean manages to pack a lot in, while keeping things spacious and restful.
