Bear Boy Espresso


Bear Boy Espresso is a chic and charming cafe perched on the end of Windsor's heritage-listed 1920's shopping strip Colwill Place. 

The landmark building, which has recently been restored to its former glory, was built by flamboyant Arthur William Colwill with bricks from the demolished Centenary Hotel in Fortitude Valley. Not only was it the first shopping strip to have angle parking but it featured a mini golf course on the first floor and on the rooftop was a party pavilion and floodlit tennis courts with city views.
