The menu has enough of a variety to make one rethink your original choice, re-decide, and then again make another decision… everything looked great on the menu. In the end I settled on the eggs Benedict… what a magnificent choice. Walked away happy!

What a lovely and relaxing and friendly place. Compared to other locations in this area, employees don't change too often making this place always nice. Food, tea, cofe and atmosphere close to unbeatable. Great place.

My husband and I are lucky enough to drive past grounded several times a week. We often stop just for a coffee date. We love the vibe, love the drinks and loooove the food! It's the best place to relax with a friend or even...a business meeting with a colleague.More

Home-made quiches, tasty meals and fresh salads. Fragrant coffee and great service. Grounded by name, and heavenly by nature

Great coffee and interesting menu. The great part about this establishment is that it is owned by a youth development NGO, Echo Youth Development, and a portion of the profits generated in the café go towards uplifting young people who have no support base in...the Pretoria area. So in addition to really good coffee, your visit allows you to do some good. Well worth the trip to the northern side of town...More

As a remote Team, we mostly work in isolation in our home offices. However, there are the times when co-location is beneficial and in such cases, we use places like Grounded at Echo. We will definitely visit this venue again and again. It offers an...awesome work environment, either in an open space or in an office or boardroom. The Host Team were very attentive to our needs, and we were definitely at home at Grounded... There are a variety of lunch options, walking distance from the venue, but snacks and refreshments are also available on-site. We will be visiting them again for future collaborations, as they are called for.More

I love visiting Grounded. The food is always amazing. They use only fresh ingredients and the staff is just as refreshing. I've ordered frozen meals to go as well as cakes for birthday parties and I have never been disappointed. I must confess, their Banting...breakfast is my absolute favorite! The pesto (which I've also brought "to go") , is DEVINE!!! This is a hidden gem whiting the Moot!More

Think of getting staff a place to relax instead of in middle of restaurant. Chicken mayo sandwiches were really good.

Food was good. Service was good. There is a co working space which is actually really nice. Excited to work through the menu. Will definitely be back. Not very big but if you can, sit outside, it's nice. Very well priced.

Loved the friendly staff and good coffee; BUT it has become very pricey and sometimes the cakes/treats are finished: sad, cause we love to support local!

Pleasant surprise! Went there for coffee, ended up ordering baked cheese cake. Reception was friendly, service was good. Coffee was great. The baked cheese cake was really tasty, not dry as it tends to be . i will be back for more reviews

I was invited for a belated birthday breakfast at Grounded. I never expected to find such an excellent coffee shop in Pierneef str. Although they were short staffed that morning, David and Karolien and their staff looked after like royalty. We were 10 persons and...every dish was excellently prepared. I had trout and avo - outstanding! Portions were ample and the coffee / cappachino's perfect. Can't wait to return - this time for lunch.More
