Cheeky Bean Espresso Bar
Cheeky Bean Espresso Bar is a familiar face to many West End caffeine sippers. It has been operating a hole-in-the-wall operation across the road from Davies Park for more than six years, cultivating a loyal following thanks to its six sizes of takeaway coffee (including the famous 20-oz ‘bucket’ of coffee), speedy service and chirpy personality. Seeing an opportunity to cement their status as the street’s go-to coffee name, the team signed on to open a second espresso bar at Montague Markets in 2020, snagging a prime corner location in the heart of the hub. Here the team are catering to the population of Montague Markets’ 89 luxury apartments, locals popping in to the new Woolworths and patrons of the on-site medical centre. Cheeky Bean’s new location offers more elbow room for coffee slinging, with bags and bags of boutique beans from Bacano Coffee Roasters – the espresso bar’s go-to supplier – ready to handle the morning rush. In addition to the bean juice, Cheeky Bean 2.0 is also stocking HRVST ST juices and Somersault Sodas, muffins, cookies and Doughluxe Doughnuts, with space set aside for a possible grab-and-go snack service in the future, depending on what locals are craving most.
