Great little cafe in Pauatahanui. Decent food, friendly staff and good availability for seating and parking.
Although their food is quite pricey it is quite tasty. Sausage Roll from the cabinet and Nachos are always my go to when I visit.
Coffee from here is also really good.
Ground Up does get quite busy on weekends especially between 10am - Midday after kids sport and they don't do bookings so if you are coming with a group you could take your chance but may pay to go somewhere else. Also does take a while for your food and coffee to arrive when they are busy.
Still a good little local cafe to visit.
Mid-week team meeting destination and its conveniently halfway between tge hutt and kapati with nice big tables for a group of 6 to comfortably sit. Fast service for a busy establishment one coffee nearly bet the person back to the table. We ordered from the variety of cabinet food and my personal favorite is the sweet selection - so many delishous options.
This was not a good cafe experience. I ordered a takeaway coffee and a fluffy as well as some counter food. I had two kids with me and it was obvious to staff I was trying to manage them not touching the fire and staying out of the way of the serving staff, as the waiting space was very tight. The cafe was busy and the takeaway coffee and fluffy took over ten minutes to be made. The woman in front of me was waiting even longer. This is far too long for a takeaway coffee in any cafe, even at a busy time!!!
Also, once I took a sip of my coffee, I burnt my mouth! It was the hottest coffee I've ever had made and I wasn't able to drink it for 5-10mins once I received it. If I'd still been in the cafe when I'd taken that first sip, I would've returned it. With kids who'd had to wait too long in a confined space, there was no way I was walking back to wait for another to be made!
