After a month closed for renovations, the new-look Grind It is bright, airy and relaxed and still serving the best coffee in Glenelg. It's more spacious and the outside tables are real bonus. The staff are as friendly and professional as ever and it's just a fabulous place to enjoy a great breakfast, brunch, lunch or afternoon tea.

I agree with the review below that the former Grind it was cramped and the vibe probably aimed at the younger generations and that expansion would be profitable. Since then the café has revamped and refitted, which is a risky thing to do when nothing is broken (ok well the roof was leaky in winter and it was a tight... More

The food here is faultless. Consistently delicious and very fresh! It was nice to come mid week and get a booth seat - too many people know about this amazing place! Always a favorite stop for us for breaky and can't see that changing anytime soon. Thanks Grind It team!

We agree with the last few reviews, the male manager was extremely rude as soon as we walked in. Didn't smile, rolled his eyes and was unwelcoming. The food is always excellent though. Fire him and give the chef a pay rise!

The manager was very rude, blunt and unhelpful with our reasonable requests. We felt like walking out but had already ordered - we felt very unwelcome. Will not be returning for this reason.

We came for a birthday brunch for my daughter. She had been before & loved it. My Mum & I had a nice strong coffee first & then our food arrived. My daughter & I had the buttermilk pikelets with salted caramel pecan syrup & double cream. The pikelets were pancake sized so that was a bonus & I literally... More

Not sure why people rave about the coffee here, it was pretty average. So was the food. I had poached eggs and avocado and nothing special at ALL about it. That is my staple dish for brunch so I've tried a few places. As for the atmosphere, seriously, what's great about it? Sterile, cold, unwelcoming and clinical I'd say. Having... More
