At Bean Central we believe in building an environment that ensures everyone is provided with an equal opportunity. This means we employ staff with disabilities, encourage learning and training of new skills and we love to see our community bloom.

We are committed to creating a welcoming and positive environment for everyone that comes into our cafe, whether they are an employee or a guest.


Bean Central is a modern café designed with community in mind.

Housed at 111 Monaro Street – the former address of Queanbeyan’s iconic Central Café – Bean Central is Queanbeyan’s new ‘go-to’ venue for coffee and cake with friends, brunch with the family or simply for milkshakes and hot chips after school.

With a hint of nostalgia in its name, Bean Central is a nod to the glory days of the iconic Central Café, with old photos of Queanbeyan adorning the walls and some menu items – such as the Mixed Grill – making an appearance on our delicious, fresh and seasonal menu.

As a small family owned business, we have created a family friendly café, with  our huge play area ensuring dining with young ones a lot less stressful for parents and carers.

Our large venue also makes an ideal place for parties and functions, as well as lunches with team-mates after game day.

With a menu that aims to cater for all tastes and dietary requirements and includes some of the regions finest produce, we think you’ll be impressed and be ready to tell your social followers that #ivebeentobean
