Everything was 10/10. We were visiting Toowoomba for the Carnival of Flowers and used Trip Advisor to find a place for breakfast. We picked Ground Up Espresso Bar. It was a cold and windy Saturday morning and we managed to get a seat inside as...we were there at 7. The place was buzzing. In summary- great coffee (stayed for an extra after food), great food and friendly service. I had very tasty Huevos Rancheros which were perfectly done. My wife had the mushrooms. We left feeling ready to deal with the cold wind!More

Location food and coffee just right! Great staff with that extra friendliness a bit rare these days. Went that extra yard to accommodate us. Breakfast just delicious and coffee on the money. Location in an alleyway full of murals added that funky element.

Not bad at all. In cool little lane Way. Milk alternatives available. Nice foods. Appears to be fresh and healthy options available.

Always excellent service. The coffee and cold drinks are always perfect and the food is always well prepared. Everything is cared about by the owners.

Just went for a morning breakfast here. Got a cap and some avo toast and it was incredible. Definitely Toowoomba cutest little cafe!

Great coffee, friendly staff, definitely worth the visit. Cold brew available here too. Small shop with outdoor seating in the alleyway - would be difficult to accomodate large groups here.

Has Ground Up changed hands recently? I admit I no longer get to Toowoomba regularly but this originally fabulous cafe saw me through early morning Uni starts and cold winter afternoon caffeine hits for many years. The coffee is no longer Tobys Estate but some...hideous weak undrinkable concoction that tastes sour in a long black. The amazing vibe is gone. I am so sad. I will give a rating only because there is actually a coffee machine on the premises. Time to look for a new coffee place.More
