At Bear & Bean we believe it is important to use ingredients as close to the source as possible. Using good local produce is a major priority. We love to cater for functions where people are having a good time, and the food is matched with, and heightens the atmosphere. We love the idea of people becoming involved in what they are eating, so serving food in the middle of the table creates a really lively, animated eating experience.
Bear & Bean is the creation of Lauren & Julian Sault and their family. Both Lauren and her husband Julian have years of experience in hospitality and the food industry. They have been around long enough to see what works and what doesn’t.
One night over dinner and a wine the decision was made to build a local family catering business with the vision to one day open their own cafe.
Not wanting to miss an opportunity, Lauren’s brothers, Trav and Reece, decided to get aboard and make Bear & Bean a true family affair. Every one of Bear & Bean’s owners brings a different skill and experience which also allows them to share the workload.
Bear & Bean is owned and run by: Lauren & Julian Sault. Emerly & Reece Beckley. Trav & Kaela Beckley.
