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.”
