Who is Miss Jones?
According to owners Daniel and Hannah Bowles the answer is: whoever you want it to be.
“We like the idea of having a name that could sound familiar and comfortable,” Dan says. “As if it [is] a personality.”
Miss Jones is the second cafe from the husband and wife team after opening popular New Farm spot Little Loco more than two years ago. Dan, who’s also a professional footballer for Brisbane Roar, describes Miss Jones as a “grown-up” version of Little Loco in the way the menu is set out and the space is fit out.
The Bowleses took over a section of an LJ Hooker building on the corner of Brunswick and Bowen Streets with a plan to “bring the pastels back”. The result: a bright room full of muted hues broken up by timber and greenery.
“We wanted to find somewhere with a good balance between business and residential,” Dan says. “We feel like we’ve done that well here.”
The all-day breakfast menu includes a crowd favourite eggs Benedict with hash and cheddar waffle, avocado, chorizo, chipotle hollandaise and poached eggs, as well as a healthy Green Breakfast: spinach, broccolini, kale, goat’s cheese, poached eggs and balsamic on sourdough. The lunch menu start at 11.30am and includes corn and chorizo tacos, and a Kewpie chicken burger.
A La Marzocco espresso machine pours the Paradox blend from Sydney’s Single O coffee roasters, and there are also shakes and HRVST ST juices.
