The two of us went to Noosaville/ Noosa for a two day break and stayed at a motel at the waterfront. All the recommendations were for the Grind Cafe, so we tried it for breakfast. So...the tired old phrases like "fast and clean and friendly " are totally inadequate. To put things in perspective, I saw 8 cafes in the... More

Cannot fault this great little coffee shop! Breakfast was so tasty and delicious with the freshest eggs and generous serving of ham on Eggs Benny. Coffee was also a great drop and the blueberry citrus and white chocolate muffin was very very memorable! This is a slick operation with a hardworking finely tuned team ensuring you receive a great morning... More

This place pumps at breakfast so we wondered how the service would be. It was awesome. Had a very vibrant waiter who made the experience really enjoyable. The food was yummy and the beverages delicious. We'll definitely go back.

The food is great! Coffee good. Service- hasty and stressed. The staff didn't miss anything but looked like they had a lot to do and not enough time or space to do it in. We'd go again, but maybe when it's quieter. Waffles and Bircher were both excellent.

We decided to get out of Hastings Street and go for a walk to Noosaville for breakfast, service was great, coffee was great..... we did only have toast with house made berry jam which was superb and probably one of the best fruit toasts I have ever had. Will be back!

I had breakfast at Grind in the School Holidays with my 5 year old. With. I reservation, I chose Grind as I'd noticed the significant number of locals eating breakfast here each morning. Even just walking by the staff we're friendly to us. We were quickly seated and served. The service was friendly, professional and fast. The staff took time... More

On our annual visit to Noosa we make a beeline to Grind for the best coffee in town. Unbelievably several of the staff remember our order from the previous year! They are unfailingly attentive and the service is great. And of course one of the best views in town for people watching or just river gazing.

It was 8am on a Saturday morning and this place was humming but we got a great table at the front with a view over Gympie Terrace and the river. Our coffees came out within 10 mins but our food took about 45 mins to arrive. At that point we were so hungry, it didn't really matter what had been... More

Have been coming up from Melbourne and been to this restaurant on a yearly basis for a number of years. The food is good quality and of a consistently high standard. It is in a great position looking out onto the Noosa River. Excellent service and a most enjoyable meal. The lemon tart never fails to please us which we... More
