Ground Up Espresso

Ja, La, Le A1, and Wolf on Ground Up Espresso.

Ground Up Espresso is located at 87 Young St Carrington.

As per usual I got my cappuccino and Wolf also got one and our coffee verdict is: smooth, very good coffee. We really enjoyed them. A1 and Le got smoothies, a strawberry and a mixed berry which they were a little disappointed with. Not a big thing but they didn't put on the menu they put honey in their smoothies, which A1 and Le really didn't like. So overall rating is hard to give so a 7/10 because the coffee is really good, but the smoothies were disappointing.

A brunch-breakfast menu gave some basic but delicious sounding options. I got the cream cheese and smoked salmon on sourdough which was really good, basic but really nice. La got the avocado and lemon on sourdough, again basic but she really enjoyed it. Wolf got the tomato and hommus on sourdough, again basic but delish. A1 got the breakfast wrap, which was really nice but could've been a bit bigger. We all rather enjoy a little something sweet after breakfast so we got a banana bread and a pear and raspberry bread to share between us. Really nice! Other brunch/ breakfast options included blueberry bagel, croissants and toasties. Overall food rating was 6/10.


Ground up espresso has that funky hipster we make really good coffee vibe about it. As you know I do love a hipster cafe, this one ticks all my boxes, a really lovely cafe to go for coffee and some brunch. A 5/5 atmosphere for me.

Ground Up Espresso had really great coffee but the smoothies were a small let down. The brunch/ breakfast menu was basic but had some delicious breakfast options, good food. Atmosphere was funky, hipster definitely my style of breakfast spot. Overall Ground Up Espresso got a 18/25 from us.

Brunch on Newcastle,
Ja and Company xoxo.
