We had lunch here on Friday 18 December, and were surprised firstly by the size of the venue - not quite intimate or cosy, but the food was acceptable nevertheless. One thing that really put us off was the flies - far too many for a restaurant.

After searching for places to have lunch we kept finding ourselves back at The Grind Cafe. It's pretty central in Underberg. The staff are friendly. The food is great. There's free wifi. Definitely worth a visit!

Not much atmosphere - - a large barn-like place, but the service and the food was very good. Can recommend the pizza.

The food is good in the atmosphere of an American style cafe. I would recommend to try their burgers!

Grind Café Underberg, Café doesn’t look much from the outside or in but what a fantastic breakfast. Portion size was good, service was very good, excellent coffee, really good value for money. Even spoke to other patrons, ALL the breakfast items looked good and enjoyed. If your in Underberg don’t miss the Grind Café, for any meal.

An amazing family owned restaurant which is kid friendly (important with 2 little boys in tow) and affordable! The best burgers in town and awesome specials make eating out easy! Wouldn't make it through the day without my early morning cappucino :)

After a long day in the car or on the Sani Pas, there's nothing better than chilling out in a clean and warm restaurant. The Grind Cafe offers just that! We usually sit on the couches in the back, order a cappuccino, some nachos or a Spanish Frittata while we look back on our day. The staff is very friendly... More

We stopped in here by chance and how lucky we were! Our waiter was really good and made the best coffee ever. The Pizzas were fantastic and my steak was cooked to perfection!!
