 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.
