John Mills Himself cafe and bar is located within the heritage-listed John Mills Building on Charlotte Street – access this hidden gem via the driveway on 55 Elizabeth Street

Staying true to the building’s architectural heritage, John Mills Himself is a quaint space featuring high windows, exposed brick walls and dark timber beams. Supporting all-local and where possible organic produce, the café rotates between blends across the three grinders – choose your own bean or let the baristas recommend the blend suited to your taste buds.

The bar stocks four brews from Stone & Wood, Bacchus Brewing Co., All Inn Brewing Co. and Green Beacon Brewing, with a fifth tap dedicated to seasonal beer or cider. Further cementing its all-local ethos, the wine list options are exclusively from Queensland, while all of the spirits and Crows Nest mixers are from Australian manufacturers.
