Paper Moon Cafe


Brisbane's coolest cafe Paper Moon can be found along Annerley Road in an old colonial store with art deco decor, Wurlitzer jukebox and free pool.

Pool table and juke box with patrons sitting at tables inside the cafe

Formerly It's Vintage Darling, mother and daughter team Holly Whitefield and Jodi Craig (who used to run the now defunct Joynt) have collaborated to create a cool, relaxing space with exposed brick walls, art deco posters, lamps and lounge - where patrons can sip locally roasted Bear Bones espresso, listen to jazz and play pool.  

Sofas in back room of cafe

Quiet conversations can be had in one of two back rooms, both equipped with comfy couches; while retro red booths and arcade game tables line the footpath.

Besides espresso, the cafe carries quality loose leaf teas and Emma and Tom's smoothie juices; or BYO beer, wine and spirits (corkage fees apply). To compliment your beverage, there's a small but delicious vegan/vegetarian menu including sweets and light eats.
