A coffee shop with limited food choices. I felt that the food was expensive with a fairly ordinary pulled pork burger without sides like chips around $13. Use only if on campus and need to chill out.

Recently i visited the cafe for lunch with friends. my friend ordered the butter chicken filo pastry but when it came out, the waiter thought it was cake... My friend tried it, to find that it was a sweet, soggy pastry that wasnt cooked and what belonged in a dessert. When asked to be able to choose another meal, "the... More

Staff behind the counter are always sour and rude. Always roll their eyes when I explain I need equipment cleaned before making my blended beverage, due to allergies. Still end up with things I can't have in my drink, which is made differently almost every time.

Based in the middle of QUT campus, Beadles is a bit of an institution. Overall, their food is very average. I don't think it is the fault of the cook- it's just a very basic and uninspiring menu. The coffee suits me fine, but others might find it too weak/milky. The staff are also great if you're a regular and... More

We hired Pure Catering Briabane for a special event. They arrived half an hour late. We had to help them unpack and set up. They forgot the table cloths. The finger sandwiches were dry and had crusts left on in places. Scones were oversized and presented in a big ugly pile. 'Pastries' were tiny bottle cap sized cups filled with... More

Beadles has fast efficient and friendly service for takeaway coffee and is a comfy place to sit a while if you are 'dining in'. Their chai lattes are super... as are the biscuits and cakes - though can be expensive.

While it may not be as good as some cafes in the CBD beadles is an institution in the Kelvin Grove area. The former owner/manager was amazing and while it now doesn't have that amazing personal touch to the service it is still a very good cafe. Staff are not super friendly but they get the service concept and I've... More

I use to be a staff member at QUT Kelvin Grove 6 years ago and use to treat my self to a Beadles Chicken and Avo Wrap with chips occasionally. Beadles use to be the only decent cafe in KG area now 6 years later after the Kelvin Urban Village, Beadles still survives the many pop up cafes up and... More

Not bad for a UNI cafe. Good and cheap b/fast's. And it's lisenced.

QUT's Kelvin Grove campus is truly lucky to have Beadles on its grounds. The staff are fantastic, the food is excellent, and the setting is perfect. A wide variety of cuisines and snacks, the staff and students of KG campus are indeed privileged to have Beadles on campus!
