I only wrote one word down in my notebook to describe this place. That word was ‘bad’. With that introduction, let me get into the nitty gritty of why I only needed one word to describe Ground Café.
Open for about 4 months now, Ground Café is still new to the Mitcham area. When I visited on a Saturday late morning, the café was quiet and empty except for one other customer. I sat down and ordered my usual coffee, only to find it was weak and quite watery. As a Melbournian, I shudder…
I couldn’t quite decide what to eat because nothing looked entirely enticing off the menu, so I went for a no-brainer classic: the toastie. I ordered the breakfast toastie ($9.50) and some avocado on the side ($4). This is what I got:
I thought perhaps this was a bad joke. I got 2 slices of bread, 1 slice of cheese, 1 fried egg and 1 micro piece of bacon. Oh, and I mustn’t forget the 6 thin slices of avocado on the side.
Safe to say, it was bad. Not worth the calories or money when there are a number of better options just up the road.
