Established in 1936 and purchased by the Bellchambers family in 1975, Shingle Inn Cafés & Bakery has been owned by only two families during its 80 year history, enabling the business to retain the quality and unique character which has made it famous amongst several generations.
Today, the business is run by brothers Peter and Andrew Bellchambers and an experienced team of personnel who embrace the strong 'family' culture, tradition and outstanding customer service on which the business's enduring reputation was built.
Each member of Shingle Inn's management team brings a unique set of skills and experience to their varied roles, assisting each store to operate to its fullest potential.
Shingle Inn is able to maintain continuity and innovation in our product offering through the provision of our range of superior quality products from the company’s East Brisbane centralised baking facility. Our pastry chefs and bakers have more than 100 years of experience between them, many with 20+ years experience specifically baking some of Shingle Inn’s most popular products.
We don’t rest on our laurels though and take the development of new and innovative products very seriously. Our constant focus on product development enables us to offer customers new products relevant to changing trends whilst always maintaining the superior quality for which we are renowned.
Product supply from our own central bakery also ensures we can quickly and easily implement new products and ensures we’re able to offer a product range that is unique and won’t be found in every competing café.
Coffee is a large and very important part of Shingle Inn’s business. As such, you and your team will be trained to offer the highest standard of coffee service.
Shingle Inn offers its own blend of coffee and has a constant focus on improvement in this area of the business with a particular focus on dedicated in-store baristas to ensure we produce exceptional coffees on every occasion.
