The Grind Cafe is a nice place where youc an have a breakfast, lunch, dinner an also... hire movies!. It is a great place and the staff was very friendly but the service was quite slow. Anyway, the pizzas and the meat were very good and well cooked. I suggest this place with pleasure.

The grind cafe is not what you expect in berg. The establishment is large...u can also hire movies from the same venue. It's very modern furnishings might seem a little off in berg. However the food is good....and Lawrence has been super friendly on both visits. There's ample place for kids to run around....And the food is good too. We... More

We didn't stay for full service. We ordered take-out, but the food was enjoyable. The beef prego was delicious, especially the sauce. But a word of advise from an ordinary customer would be to please keep those comfy sofas clean. They looked comfy enough to want to sit on them, but dirty enough to want to stay away from them...

Went here for dinner in July. The location was good, but the venue wasn't that great: it's a very tall, open building and it doesn't feel like a restaurant, maybe get some folding screens to make the place more pleasant? Food wise the place is OK, but not great. We had the three cheese pizza with mozzarella, cheddar, feta (swapped... More

Relatively new restaurant in Underberg. Nicely set out with large tables, cozy book corner and DVDs for those that are having a boring holiday! Warm fire for cold nights. Fabulous pizzas and portions were huge! Really lovely place to have dinner (or lunch) in Underberg. Staff and manager were friendly. Kiddies menu was really good, with some nice choices. Loads...

Would recommend The Grind Cafe as best family restaurant in Underberg. We had a REALLY good burger, chicken dish and spaghetti bolognaise. Nice big open area, good & friendly service. Also Big screen.

I much preferred the old cafe position. The new premises is spartan and not relaxing. Coffee is still good and service of high standard. Recommend it for a takeaway cup.
