Built into a brick building beside historic St Clement's Catholic Church, this baseball-themed, bunker-style cafe features marbled flooring and exposed brickwork inside while outside a Frank & Mimi mural overlooks a cosy seating space.

Customers can sit in the shade or pull up a crate in the sunshine and enjoy a well-brewed cup of coffee and light snack like fresh fruit salad, bircher muesli, breakfast roll or ham and cheese croissant; while tasty treats include banana bread, chocolate brownies and homemade, healthy bliss balls by Brisbane's Miss Bliss.
