Goodness Gracious Cafe

In the suburbs of Brisbane, there’s a popular spot for both locals and tourists called the Goodness Gracious Cafe. The cafe is designed to have that casual yet chic vibe and set indoor and outdoor seats that are both available so people can sit wherever they like. They make all sorts of delish brunch dishes, create amazing espresso-art coffee, and offer different variety of fruits and pancakes. The presentation of each dish is so creative and original that you will want to take tons of photos as soon as you see them before taking a bite. It’s not just about the appearance though, the food is fresh, healthy, and absolutely delicious too. For drinks, aside from their signature blends of coffee (way to go Captain Obvious!), the cafe also offers a unique blend of lactose-free ice cream and shakes. Goodness Gracious Cafe does an excellent job of coming up with something new to offer depending on one’s diet. They also have a separate menu specially made for kids with or without sweet tooth and yummy drinks for the little ones. For those who crave anything but meat or are on a diet, they have a vegetarian menu to choose from too.

Goodness Gracious Cafe is located on the hectic road of Oxley Road, Graceville and is situated near the Brisbane River. It’s also just a few minutes away from Simpsons Playground Reserve and Graceville Riverside Parklands. GGC is a perfect stopover if you’re on your way to popular attractions like the Kangaroo Point Cliffs Park (18 minutes away), the Old Windmill Observatory (20 minutes away), Minnippi Parkland (30 minutes away), and Venman Bushland National Park (41 minutes away). If you’re travelling with pets, you’re in for a surprise as this cafe is dog-friendly and offers dog ice cream – perfect for when you’re going for a ride on a hot day with your furry friend!

If you are planning to visit the cafe, plan to arrive early in order to ensure that you get to pick a space to sit down and relax while waiting for your order. You can choose a seat indoors to escape the heat of summer or pick a table outdoors if the weather’s good and the temperature’s just right. Keep in mind that GGC is open daily from 7 am to 2 pm so it’s only suitable for breakfast, lunch, or brunch. While sipping your choice of coffee, you can also have a slice of cake (or two) as they also serve a range of sweet treats for you to enjoy. If you’re craving something cold that will also quench your thirst from a long drive, their drink menu will give you lots of options. They serve everything from traditional coffee to smoothies and juice. They also offer organic tea to satisfy anyone’s craving for anything organic. 

As the cafe serves large servings, you may want to go on a walk before hopping back to your car and driving to your destination. If so, Indooroopilly Riverwalk may be just the right place as a second stop over after the cafe since it’s just a 5-minute drive away from the cafe. Sherwood Arboretum is a great choice too if visiting a botanical garden is on your checklist. If you don’t have any particular place to go after, it might be a good time to head to somewhere fun to spend the rest of the day like Rocks Riverside Park which is also a perfect place to go cycling.
