Bowen Arrow Cafe
Bowen Arrow Café is a sleek foodie oasis located on a crossroads in Bowen Hills’ busy commercial and industrial zone.
Gleaming white tiles frame the takeaway window on the street while inside Bowen Arrow Cafe the light industrial-inspired interior features exposed Besser Brick walls, polished concrete floors, a recycled wood community table, wall-mounted plant boxes and a stunning black and white photo mural of the Bowen Hills locale in 1937.
Excellent coffee served at Bowen Arrow is from Dramanti roastery, perfect for a kick-start to the day commuters at neighbouring Bowen Hills station and pick-me-up for local workers. And the food, which comprises an all day breakfast/brunch menu and some delicious goodies from the display counter, has an emphasis on fresh, healthy and seasonal and whether takeaway or eat in, comes served in a cardboard box.
Sourdough toast (with condiments) or fruit toast is a bargain $2* while other light options all come in under $10* and include muesli and yoghurt, bacon and egg or vegetarian bagels, ham and cheese croissants or avo on sourdough.
Meanwhile more substantial dishes include Waffles with maple bacon, ice-cream and strawberries, Corn and Sweet Potato Fritters with maple bacon, house-made cashew cream and mint or perfectly cooked Eggs Benedict with honey-glazed ham and house-made Hollandaise.
From the counter come lunch options like delicious bagels from Bagel Boys with fillings like salmon and cream cheese or the recommended Roast Beef with Dijon mayo and Swiss cheese. And fresh daily salads (such as Tuscan pasta or Provencal) are great value at $8 to $10* per box.
There’s also a small range of heavenly sweet stuff like Peanut Butter Pie and Matcha Coconut Cheesecake.
NOTE - Currently Bowen Arrow is a CASH ONLY affair.
