The first and second time I visited The Grind Café 15 months ago, at the previous premises just down the road, I had a great experience with friendly, efficient staff and tasty food. I visited them today at the new premises and firstly I noticed a lacking atmosphere. The new floor space is huge and looks barren in a way,... More

My sincere apologies for your bad experience at The Grind Cafè. The waitron who served you had only been hired a few days previously and clearly had not learned the menu and perhaps has not had adequate training. I agree with you that the tramezzini did look terrible and unappetising and it, along with the breakfast, was certainly not anywhere... More

We have been regulars at The Grind Cafe over the years and have always enjoyed their 'Duma' pizzas and home made Canneloni as well as Illy coffee - the best in town! However we were totally bowled over when Lucas, a waiter who has been with the Grind all through various owners and changes, insisted on paying for our last... More

Fantastic food experience. Spanish Fiesta, Trout Fish (too bony though), Tramizini (brilliant) and open faced sandwich. Its a pity that they didnt offer pizzas at 11am. Hazelnut Latte is a must try. Space for kids to play.

I noticed that everybody who had visited Underberg had been for lunch at Grind Cafe' so we had to go. I enjoyed a lovely pizza and super-cold draught beer. Warm atmosphere inside or tables outside in the shade or sun. Well worth a visit.

Stopped for quick lunch on way to Drak Gardens. Was fine. Service good, food satisfactory. Coffee was amazing! Would return just for the coffee!

Not a bad spot for a quick bite, but their meals are hit and miss. I'd probably recommend the pizza or pasta before any other dish on the menu however.

In fairness we can only comment on having breakfast at The Grind and tossed up between a poor and average rating, settled on average based on the coffee being made as requested eg double shot, and the service being friendly and efficient. The coffee was the up side, the food was very ordinary. Two very dry pieces of bacon, two... More

Wade prepared a delicious perfectly grilled fillet, with Vegies served on a hot plate. Will most certainly be our regular choice. Relaxed atmosphere where locals and visitors can relax, have a good meal and watch sport. Wine list needs to be worked on though. Well done Wade.

This restaurant has free Wifi and a big menu. Some nights it can be very busy because of "actions". The staff is friendly and the restaurant has good prices. It is not really cosy, but just conformtable for a well priced (quick) diner.

We really enjoy coming here every time. The pizzas and pastas are always well prepared and prices are reasonable. We need more restaurants like these in Underberg.
