All our food is fresh and homemade. Everyone loves my muffins :)

We support Melbourne's (best) locals:

Our bread is sourdough from Baker D.Chirico. Gluten free from Mattisse.

Larson and Thompson teas. Prana Chai. 

We have our own Big Bear blend of coffee, roasted right here in Melbourne.

The Weekly Review featured us within our first few months (the article says 6 months but that's a misprint). You can read what they had to say here.

Visit Big Bear at 1167 Glen Huntly Rd, Glen Huntly. 


  1. I am definitely coming in next time I am around!

    You have done so well for yourself xx

  2. I found your blog on the vogue forums and am so happy for you. Like you, I love everything about food. From the cooking to eating, to preparing it for someone. The anticipation and eagerness to see your eater look up after a bite and smile is ever fulfilling. Congratulations on BB Cafe and i'll be sure to drop by with my friends for breakkie as soon as Ramadan is over. K xx

  3. These photos don't do it justice, a beautiful cafe - congratulations!

  4. I'm doing a little blog-stalking and came across this post - I'll be sure to visit your cafe :D Glenhuntly is not even that far from me :)

  5. Hi, I can see you have Big Bear's address on this page. Could I suggest you add your trading hours here too & maybe the phone number. Cheers

  6. When are you open?

  7. Place this on a steady surface such as the counter next to your
    kitchen sink. One option to consider would be purchasing a franchise to find you instant work in a field in which you may previously have been unfamiliar but
    may be no less attractive when it comes to looking for a
    new job role. A mesh bag for tools is also made so that they can be kept safely together.
