HOT: Careful My Tummy – Cnr Central Ave & Oxley Rd, Graceville

A new kid on the block for Graceville, nurse there’s something very endearing about Careful My Tummy.  At first glance from the outside there’s not a great deal of appeal – after all, pharmacy it’s nestled between an empty shop front and a couple of very understated and unremarkable small businesses…but don’t let that deter you.  Careful My Tummy has a truck load of appeal when you walk in and you’re greeted by the friendly staff, some kitsch-but-cool shabby-chic décor and a range of restored antique furniture (check out the restored door-come-coffee table outside on the footpath).


The newly fit-out café is open and airy, with some great people-watching and day dreaming real estate up for grabs.  There’s even a giant naughts and crosses game which kept MM and I entertained as we sipped our creamy cappuccinos.

 The specialty for Careful My Tummy is definitely their espresso – I think it would be hard to get a bad coffee here.  They use Genovese beans and you get that freshly-injected-with-caffeine type high every time. 

 That’s not all though – they are running a limited breakfast menu at the moment as they hit their strides and the avocado on toast is a definite draw card.  Two slices of grainy toast, with a very generous seasoned, lemony spread of avo and a side of balsamic for $8.50 – delish. 


Also on the limited brekky menu are bacon and egg toasted muffins and a range of amazing homemade chocolate brownies (seriously, these are to die for!) and of course muffins.  At lunch you can grab a range of wraps and sandwiches, but watch this space for more news on the menu in weeks to come.


Careful My Tummy’s got the potential to be a cult hit with the locals.  No doubt within time, it’ll be a popular espresso spot for the lycra-clad cycling community that is prevalent in the Graceville area which will be great to see.
