Goodness Gracious 2.0 — our favourite bagel spot opens in Parnell

Goodness Gracious has spread its doughy-wings and flown East.

The uptown bagel joint that garnered a loyal following before the doors even opened in Eden Terrace back in 2014 has spread its doughy-wings and flown East with a new ‘cross-town bagel spot’, and Goodness Gracious, it’s good.

Located in Parnell, the black and white theme follows on from its original outpost. The space is narrow with white tiles and a polished concrete floor, with a live moss wall perched above the kitchen. Smoothies, tea and coffee (you can grab a bag of custom blend beans too) are all on offer, as are a few options for an afternoon tipple and the perfect bagel companion; a delicious bloody mary.

The team behind the café know that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, so they’ll be serving up the same much-loved classics like ‘The B.L.A.T’ and ‘The Kransky’, and let’s not forget ‘The Sampler’ which includes a choice of three mini bagels almost too cute to eat. They also delve into the more exotic, if you’ve yet to try the chilli con carne that sits atop an open grilled bagel, let’s just say you’re in for a treat.

With the option to dine in or order online and take away, we expect the same sort of atmosphere found at the uptown bagel spot; great bagels, great coffee and plenty of people keen to get a taste of the doughy delights.

Opening hours:
Weekdays 7.30am – 4pm
Saturdays 8am – 4pm
Sundays 8am – 3pm
