Lettuce rejoice! Greens & Grains brings gourmet salads to Graceville
The adage ‘you don’t make friends with salad’ is obsolete. The truth is you absolutely can make friends with salad, as Greens & Grains can attest. This charming pit stop is set to make its mark on the local lunch scene, with leaves and legumes worth shaking a leg for.
The cries of joy were audible across Brisbane’s west when news arrived that a dedicated high-end salad bar was opening on Honour Avenue in Graceville. The salad saviour Greens & Grains is the brainchild of Kim Peabody (of Nantucket Kitchen & Bar) and Shona Brice, taking inspiration from Shona’s time in London for their ‘takeaway-with-a-difference’ lunch nook, which serves a range of healthy salads, breads, meats and treats to the local populace. Kim and Shona have tapped into Graceville’s local history for their endeavour, securing a charming space in a heritage row shop constructed by Walter Taylor – who is also responsible for building the Indooroopilly Bridge and the Graceville Uniting Church.
Greens & Grains stocks a rotating selection of salads to choose from, with six available every day. Market-sourced produce is incorporated into every salad, with popular choices being kale with brioche croutons and truffle dressing, pearl cous cous, brocolini and caramelised fennel and potato, mint and pea. Breads are sourced from Chouquette, and cupcakes and slices are made in house. Busy workers can swing by and pick up some cooked meats to take home, with a choices such as pulled pork, slow-cooked brisket and chilli mince a handy option for weeknight dinners. Greens & Grains can also cater with a few days notice, and gluten-free options are available.
