Two Boys One Beagle and A Coffee Shop is a newly opened boutique café nestled among a quaint row of shops on Kareela Rd in Karingal. It is the aptly named fourth ‘child’ of hospitality lifers Jamie and Mikaela, and this is their breakout role as entrepreneurs. Having worked for almost 15 years in the industry on the Peninsula, they bring a great deal of experience and passion to this business.
Naming the cafe after their children Otis, 2, and Alby, eight weeks, and beagle Penelope, Jamie and Mikaela were keen to bring good coffee and humble food to their home suburb, because every neighbourhood deserves quality coffee and a reliable ‘local’ — and Two Boys One Beagle and A Coffee Shop does not disappoint.
Open daily from 7am-4pm, 2B1B serves the Peninsula’s own Commonfolk coffee alongside a delicious all-day brunch menu and mouth-watering home-baked cakes. Try Penelope’s fennel and lemon waffles with wood-smoked bacon, maple butter, whiskey banana jam and vanilla ice cream; garlicky mushrooms; homemade baked beans; or avo crush. If you feel like something a little less ‘breakfasty’, why not try the spicy jalapeno and manchego croquettes or the Pyrenees pork belly with saganaki, a fried egg and Opa’s kim chi.
Located just a hop, skip and a jump from a great little playground, 2B1B is the perfect place to stop by with the family. Enjoy a relaxed and friendly vibe and some super cute pink décor to match the custom-painted La Marzocco coffee machine — it’s even got pink highchairs!
