I have to say up front that I think the name change from the establishment's previously enigmatic moniker, Careful My Tummy, is a winner. Ananas (pronounced AH / nah / nahs) means pineapple in Italian, French, Spanish and other languages and is a symbol of hospitality. Ananas Espresso is indeed a sweet treat, if an unlikely one. It's a word-of-mouth discovery because you could literally blink and miss this hole-in-the-wall establishment. And that would be a shame.
There is outdoor seating and what was a tiny indoor space when we visited has since expanded into the shop next door, granting some much needed extra seating. And the place is always buzzing with customers so there are encouraging signs that the local clientele have welcomed Ananas to the thriving Graceville dining scene.
As usual, I was with my breakfast 'partner-in-dine', Designing Daughter, and on the lookout for a delicious, not too pricey breakfast. The menu is simple, short and sweet. It includes the usual suspects such as toast (sourdough, turkish, thick-cut fruit), muesli, scrambled eggs, and a good looking BLAT (bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato on Turkish bread), which I watched another happy diner devour — surreptitiously, of course.
