Bird & Deer
In mid-2014, Lawnton welcomed one of Brisbane’s most unique and welcoming establishments, Bird & Deer, to its fledgling cafe scene. This espresso bar is part cafe, part streetwear boutique and part art gallery together in one relaxed yet vibrant space. Patrons can browse an ever-expanding range of clothes, accessories and artworks from local and international artists before sitting down with a coffee and a bite. Bird & Deer offers an extensive bagel menu that includes ten flavours and a wide range of toppings, as well as waffles, gluten free muesli and banana bread. Those needing a pick-me-up have come to the right spot as Bird & Deer serves Allpress Espresso, serving a signature house blend and a range of single origins that rotate weekly. Bird & Deer supports charities that help the less fortunate, namely orphaned children. The shop helps to finance projects including teaching, life training and providing safe homes to those that can’t fend for themselves. This impressive business has plans to open as a whiskey bar at nights with high quality selection of spirits available – watch this space for updates.
