After hearing great things about The Grind (Yeppoon) for weeks – we finally had the chance to check it out. Breakfast date with Jess & Jin!
Beautiful weather, which was already a win 🙂
Minimal seating inside but can’t complain about sitting outside in this weather!
Neat mismatched decor
The Grind serves a range of Yenda beer… too bad it was breakfast time!

Everyone agreed the coffee was great!
Michael and I each enjoyed a filled bagel. Michael enjoyed the Smoked Salmon Classic ($11) – smoked salmon, cream cheese, capers, red onion, black pepper, rocket & lemon.
I chose the BRAT ($10) with bacon, rocket, avocado, tomato & aioli.
We both agreed that the bagels were delicious and filled with fresh ingredients. But, they are most definitely NOT real bagels. Just soft white bread shaped into bagels. As you might know, being Canadians, we are huge fans of bagels and were unfortunately quite disappointed 😦
Jess and Jin enjoyed their tasty fish and chips with a fresh salad, crispy fish, and generous amount of tartare sauce!
Have been looking forward to visiting again for their tapas nights – unfortunately, no opportunity yet but hopefully soon!
For dessert, as per the recommendation of a friend, my first Long John (bar shaped, yeast risen, filled donut) from O’Gradys Bakehouse! Chewy, just the right amount of cinnamon sugar and cream filling – so yum!
