About Us

We are a small independent family run coffee and gift shop in the heart of Ripley, Derbyshire. A Mother and Daughter lead team who have a huge passion for food, locally sourced produce and supporting other independent small company's, we opened our doors on February13th 2015.

All our cake and produce is handmade onsite daily including the little brown bear (Its actually a Ginger bear) that you get with every hot drink.

You can find us nestled above Hurst's Chemist in Ripley. We have an entrance through Hurst's and direct access up from Oxford Street between Paul Walkers and Hurst's gift entrance.

You can also find a specially selected range of our chocolate produce at

- Design 44 in Derby Intu Centre,

- Handmade Design in Ashbourne.

- The Derbyshire Emporium in Bakewell

We get out and about at as many various fairs and markets as we can(please let us know if you think there is one we should be doing)


and our gift range is also on Etsy: BearBrownGoods.

Whether your just looking for a warming cup of tea and book in a cosy corner, afternoon tea for 20, a bag of coffee and a chocolate bar for at home or a full gift hamper we have it all.

A lot of our produce is sourced locally like:

Our Raw Meat -Paul Walkers Butchers (Midway down Oxford Street Ripley),

Our Eggs - SR & DA Hoare (Jacksdale)

Our Coffee - 47 Degrees (Langley Mill)
