During our stay in Noosaville we made a beeline to Grind every morning for breakfast. Just look for the most popular spot on Gympie Terrace - the place was bursting at the seams, especially on a Sunday morning. Obviously locals and tourists alike know a good thing. Apparently it has been an icon on the strip for about 15 years... More

Good breakfast stop . Is always busy from early on most days. The service is stern and seating is managed to maximise capacity.

Great poached eggs and coffee. Service depends on who is rostered on! The female staff are very obliging and helpful!

Really nice overlooking river, but ordering food took ages, coffees took ¼ hour, breakfast was probably under heater as over cooked and not very nice. Busy time so get more staff, put very clear processes in place.

Keep trying and they keep failing. Mid-week brunch poached eggs and bacon seems to present insurmountable problems. Yesterdays efforts produced a hard poached yolk and they served pre-cooked bacon that was nearly ready to repair my worn shoe soles. Service nearly always good. Coffee mediocre.

Not all the time you order breaky, you get quality ingredients cooked to perfection. But our breakfast at Grind Cafe we walked away more than happy. The breakfast menu has decent amount of options, including specials on the day. Great location, just to sit on a quiet morning, taking in the beautiful environment across from the river. Good service, and... More

Visited after seeing trip advisor reviews. For my wife and I we both thought it was great. Interesting menu, visually appealing, great tasting, friendly staff, good service and nice hot coffee. In a word "Perfect".

We stopped at Grind after seeing Trip Advisor reviews and it was delicious. Very busy so if there are more than 2 of you, best to make a booking. My partner and I were lucky to get seats at the bar style seating at the front and had a lovely outlook into the park/beachfront area on the river. The service... More
