Gratia cafe is as pleasant as the name suggests, with a stylish modern set up. Being a keen and active participant in the field of community service, fundraising and awareness of the importance of supporting social initiatives, we have been keen to visit here for a long while.
Situated in Surry hills near a number of local shelters, it is situated perfectly for diners to really understand what they’re contributing to. It is there to encourage compassion and understanding of others.What is remarkable in this financially driven world is that 100% of the profits are used to enact change. They pay wages of the staff and then profits are 50% selected by staff and 50% selected by customers as to where the money goes. You place a rubber ball in a jar and the money goes to different charities.
On the counter were some amazing brownies, friands and other cakes. We opted for a meal and sat outside. From the drinks menu we ordered a cup of brewed tea and a nice honeycomb cold drip cofee called the beez neez.
Great breakfast options and a lovely environment. Servings may seem a little small, but you can always get a sweet treat to goordering a granola with yogurt, milk, rhubarb and poached pear. A lovely little dish. The fried haloumi with poached eggs and salad.
A cafe with a noble cause, enjoy a meal whilst learning about those in need and feel good about giving back at the same time.
