Grumbling Goose sure will have your tummy grumbling as you walk through the door to the heart-warming aromas of great coffee, gourmet toasties, tasty pastries and delicious cakes.

Since opening 10 months ago in the main street of Belgrave, Grumbling Goose has quickly become a favourite coffee spot for locals with the team specialising in coffee and toasties.

Owners Stevie-Lee and Andy have a background rich in hospitality, saying good coffee and food are what drives them and bringing a top blend to the area was something they wanted to achieve.

“We offer coffee that you would only really get from the city, ‘Proud Mary Coffee’ we also keep our shop minimal,” they said.

Not over complicating things and keeping toasties simple with gourmet fillings is also the key to their kitchen.

For the past two years, Stevie-Lee has been part of the launch and management of Burwood’s famous Acre Farmhouse Cafe and restaurant but said her greatest achievement has been opening up a shop of her own.

“I have always wanted to open a small coffee shop somewhere and have now done this,” she said.

To celebrate their upcoming first birthday, Grumbling Goose will be offering Free Filters on Fridays from now until sold out.

Visit Stevie-Lee, Andy and the team at 1/1678 Burwood Highway, Belgrave during trading hours Monday to Friday 7am-4pm.
