Hallowed Grounds Espresso in Mt Gravatt is a familiar local hangout that’s usually teeming with people who want their coffee fix and delicious bites. Since the middle of 2019, this cafe on Logan Road has undergone an expansion and revamp with its new look, new menu and new opening hours.
Today, there is plenty of room for dining or relaxing at Hallowed Grounds, including room for locals to bring their precious pooches in for some flavoured treats. Though the classic food choices remain, such as the avocado smash and the great-tasting Elixir coffee, the new menu caters to food adventures that will have patrons coming back.
The newest breakfast special, the Tuscan bowl (polenta, flat mushroom, poached eggs and kale), is perfect for energising your day, whilst its spicy El Camino (minced beef with tomato, eggs, avocado, sour cream and jalapeños) kicks up the heat to satisfy your cravings. Hallowed Grounds serves all-day breakfast fares like pancakes, bacon, cheese and eggs. The lunch menu has heaps of options from sandwiches, pasta, dish-fish taco, Asian fried wonton coleslaw, and steak with fries.
The counter cabinet has more than just muffins for dinners looking to grab a quick bite. The pastry selection is more diversified with, among other choices, vegan cupcakes, lamingtons, Hummingbird cake, and Moroccan orange and pistachio slices.
Now that Hallowed Grounds is open till late night on weekends, diners can enjoy some drinks with a platter of nibbles. In keeping with the relaxing vibe, live music plays every Friday night featuring some of Brisbane’s talented singers and songwriters.
Hallowed Grounds Espresso’s new opening hours are updated on its Facebook page.
“Had a great experience having brekkie with wife and baby. Friendly staff served us with a smile. Ordered coffee and eggs Benedict in brioche. Both really good. I even ordered a second coffee. The place is very spacious with a back sitting area. We had no trouble finding a place to sit. Can even call in to reserve a spot if you want more certainty. We sat inside near the front so baby can look around at people and watch cars go past outside.”~ Naveen Warusavithana, Google Reviews
“Congratulation to the extension of this business. Walked in and glad to see the spacious dine-in area. Ordered a flat white and a plain croissant with jam & butter. Needless to say, I took a seat inside (seems the first time to get a chance to sit indoor). Food & beverage came to the table very quick and the coffee is no doubt keeping a consistent standard. Although the croissant is average, it may achieve a higher mark if the service at the counter can be more passionate.”~ Ronnielui2003, Zomato
“Haven’t been for a while but thought I’d give it a go on the way home. Love the reno & additional seating. Still great coffee and my avo on toast didn’t disappoint. Will be back.”~ Lisa Cooke, Facebook
