On top of the gorgeous Mt Gravatt Lookout sits a simple but commendable profit-for-purpose cafe known as The Lovewell Project. Dining here satisfies your hunger pangs as you feed your body and you also get to feed your soul by contributing to a good cause. 

Brimming with soft, bright, and cheerful colours, you’ll find this restaurant’s vibe and aesthetic to be an inviting and relaxing place to eat. The atmosphere perfectly matches the beautiful view outside, another reason to grab a chair and order a meal at The Lovewell Project

As a social enterprise, this cafe is a Hope Foundation partner and employs former sex workers to give them a better life. Being gainfully employed to serve a community has changed these women’s lives, improved their skills and rebuilt their self-confidence. 

So, each time you have a meal or a cup of coffee at The Lovewell Project, you are supporting women who deserve a second chance. 



Food choices at this cafe are pretty decent and the menu changes every six months or so. However, they serve the usuals like waffles, eggs, burgers, chicken, chips and pizza. Reasonably priced, diners also enjoy a good selection of coffee, tea and desserts at this cafe.

Breakfast at The Lovewell Project is quite a big deal as the place is usually packed. Regardless, you’ll get prompt service from a friendly staff that you won’t regret paying a little extra as a donation. 

The Lovewell Project opens from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. every Tuesday to Friday, and from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. 



“My first visit won’t be my last. Extremely busy day. (public holiday) Orders were taken quickly but waited for a while to get our meals. This was not a problem, and nor should it be. To be able to sit and take in the view around us was wonderful. Just to be able to sit on the veranda and watch the world go by was wonderful. Couldn’t think of a nicer place to do it. Everyone worked very hard that day. Well done!”

“A beautiful Cafe to retreat to when you want to treat someone special. The atmosphere, food and scenery are absolutely divine! I hope this Cafe will be well supported to remain open for years.. Especially since their purpose of running this business is for a good cause!”
