I love a bit of history with my coffee, that’s why when I heard about Bunker Coffee on Brisbane Broadsheet, I just had to come and check it out! It’s a popular place with a lot of coffee competition around, but in the half an hour that I sat there, it was visited by office workers, families and passers by. It’s a popular spot, and I spotted refillable Bunker Coffee mugs in loyal customers hands. They even encourage you to bring your own refillable mug which I like as they’re not just out for you buying one of theirs to get a discount. They actually want to be green without the advertising that some coffee chains insist on.
Bunker Coffee is located in a refurbished World War II shelter, it’s leafy and green and a nice space to hang out in. Truth be told there’s not much space inside the bunker itself but the communal benches outside with the leafy background gives off chilled vibes. There’s umbrellas and shading to shelter from the warm Brisbane sun and you can read your book sat next to a complete stranger while just taking in the moment with a lovely cup of coffee.
The staff were welcoming and my flat white was served within minutes. Food wise, there’s a little case of pastries and sweet things to choose from. They also offer complimentary newspapers to read while you’re there, which are hung up neatly on coat-hangers inside. There’s also complimentary water which I was in desperate need of as it was a hot morning.
Open 6am – 3:30pm Monday to Friday (except public holidays), If you’ve got a spare half hour or so in your day and you’re looking to just chill with a nice cup of coffee in a quirky space, I’d definitely recommend that you check out Bunker Coffee. Just a stones throw away from Milton train station and close to bus stops on Coronation Drive, it’s really accessible.
