Overlooking beautiful Hurtle Square, A Prayer for the Wild at Heart takes inspiration from Tennessee Williams’ play The Stairs to the Roof, embodying the Wild at Heart misfits who don’t quite fit within the confines of convention.

Located on the ground floor of Hurtle & Co, the space is fitted with modern and refined finishings and opulent creature comforts, like sound engineering and plush banquettes.

Mornings are filled with the aromatics of coffee grounds and fresh croissants, whilst lunch and dinner sees a transition into a beautifully bold brasserie.

Like its award-winning sister business, coffee roastery My Kingdom for a Horse, A Prayer for the Wild at Heart is the brainchild of Emily Raven, who saw the CBD worthy of a great neighbourhood restaurant.

Head Chef Stéphane Brizard brings his French heritage and extensive experience into the kitchen, with beautifully executed brasserie classics and the best of what is in season from SA.  

Restaurant Manager and Sommelier, Mathilde Tytgat utilises her expertise in wine and service to present a drinks list that showcases an impressive selection of evolving local and international wines, gins and spirits.

Careful waste management, conscientious sourcing of ingredients and packaging are all part of this business, whose ethos lives and breathes sustainable practice and care for community.
