“Best Breakfast In Adelaide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

The food here is amazing. Much more is on offer than your usual 'bacon & eggs'. I've been here on 2 occassions and had the French Toast and the Homemade Cinnamon Crumpets with Banana & Maple Syrup. My husband had the Grilled Haloumi & Chorizo with Sourdough when we visited together - it was spectacular! The coffee is also good and, despite some people saying otherwise, I have found the service to be really good. However, because it is so popular, arrive early to avoid disappointment! I have been at opening time both times and there have been people lining up and the place is full within 5 minutes! This has definitely become one of my favourite places to eat.

“Great food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

Trip advised Glenelg for lunch for myself + 6&8 year old. First option was full. This is nothing to look at but the food and service were great. Big sensible menu. Big list of 'sandwiches' that you can have in wrap, roll or baguette for just $9. Fresh ingredients and tasty too. One child had bacon and eggs the other a stack of 2 pancakes. Both were well presented and very filling. To top it off the staff were really friendly and helpful. Thx for a great lunch in an unknown (to me) town. 100% better than the chains on the high st.

“Best Brekky! Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2011

Discovered Grind It just recently. It's a small place just off Jetty Rd, Glenelg, Great communal seating or booth seats. We had to wait a little bit, as it was very busy. As soon as we had a seat we perused the menu. There were some great brekky options, from the usual big brekky to healthy choices. My oldest son was happy that there were pancakes on the menu and the little one had his preferred vegemite on toast. All washed down with a big chocolate milkshake! My husband and I enjoyed the eggs benedict and some Banaa bread. Now I must say it was the best eggs benedict I have had in a very long time. The guys running the place were very friendly. Also a small toy basket there for the kids to have a little play. Great idea! It was all well worth the small wait for a table. Even while we were eating the place was buzzing with people coming and going. Great place!!
