Tradition reigns but not a hammer or anvil in sight

Tucked away down a little suburban street in Mount Gravatt East, Blacksmith Specialty Coffee draws its inspiration from the best medieval traditions. You won't find a hammer or anvil in sight - except in Blacksmith Specialty Coffee's logo.Yet the mastery that emerges through the application of equal parts art, skill and science, is just as apparent in the coffee as it was in the ironwork of yore.

For early birds, breakfast items include healthy and wholesome options, including fruit and nut toast and coconut bircher muesli. Blacksmith's brunch items include the delicious veggie stack comprised of thyme roasted mushrooms, roasted pumpkin stacked on toasted rye sourdough with hummus, kale chips and hazelnut dukkah, with an option to add eggs.

I strolled into Blacksmith's during the lunch hour and enjoyed a delectable pork burger made up of slow cooked pulled pork, green apple slaw and a soft brioche bun. Other midday options include the lunch bowl of julienne carrot and beetroot, spinach, cucumber, hummus, tricolour quinoa, and shaved lime. Diners can choose to add avocado, mushrooms, salmon or pork for a nominal additional fee.

The coffee served here is a stand-out, with beans from local roasters Bare Bones Espresso. Milkshakes, smoothies, kombucha and cold pressed juice also feature.

Eating on the run? Sandwiches, salads and sweets can be packaged up to take away. I went on my way with a thick cut slice of banana bread to enjoy during my afternoon break. This taste of Blacksmith Specialty Coffee certainly helped to make an afternoon at work a lot more palatable.
