More than a coffee shop and a refreshing alternative to the traditional pub or bar, BEAR is at the forefront of the global ‘third wave’ coffee movement that sees coffee as an artisan foodstuff, rather than a quick morning pick-me-up.

BEAR offer specialty coffee, signature cocktails and craft beer accompanied by fresh, all-day dining. From breakfast to brunch, and lunch to dinner, BEAR’s food menus are tailored specifically to each store and updated regularly with seasonal goodies; there’ll always be something new to try whatever the time of day, pop in and see them.

BEAR will take you seamlessly from coffee, to cocktails… and then back to coffee.
