The Lovewell Project Cafe
Mt Gravatt Lookout
The LoveWell Project is a social enterprise, profit for purpose café partnered with the Hope Foundation* (changing the world one woman at a time, one coffee at time) in one of Brisbane's best locations with stunning views over Brisbane.
Perched atop Mt Gravatt Lookout, this cheerful café is furnished with recycled tables and colourful chairs, offering indoor dining and an outdoor deck overlooking Brisbane's southside and beyond.
COVID-19 Update - The Lovewell Project is open for in-house dining bookings* from Friday to Sunday, 7am til 8pm each day with strict social distancing and regulations in place (including diners giving their personal details as per government rules). You can also pick up a takeaway picnic and enjoy the view from the forest reserve and park alongside the cafe.
Renegade Roasters coffee (with a special Lovewell blend, also available to purchase at the cafe) is on pour and is served alongside a tasty selection of sweet treats including chocolate brownies, gluten free caramel tarts, white chocolate tarts and more, many of which are made on-site by Hope Chicks.
The food menu - breakfast and lunch - changes every 6 months (winter and summer) - customers can build their own breakfast or choose from house made breakfast (such as avocado on sourdough) or lunch options (including waffles). Both breakfast and lunch menus offer a 'Profit for purpose' option, allowing customers to donate back an additional $2 per meal, directly to Hope Foundation.
The LoveWell Project café is also child-friendly and there is a small Brisbane City Council playground conveniently located next door.
*The Hope Chicks are women who want life change from addictions and or the sex industry. Not only does The Lovewell Project Cafe provide dignity, confidence and fun for the Hope Chicks while they reintegrate into the workplace, but all the café profit goes directly to helping the women at Hope (Hope Chicks) - hence the Lovewell Project is "changing the world one woman at a time one coffee at a time".
Nice to know - There are private function packages on offer for ‘After Hours World-Changing Events’ with groups above 20 people – contact firstname.lastname@example.org
*The menu may have changed since this review.
