Attention Adelaide students:

Grind & Press has joined the EatClub platform.

A caffeine hit or a healthy snack between lectures can make all the difference to concentration levels. Luckily, Grind & Press has four locations – three at The University of Adelaide and one at Flinders University – to offer students and staff just that.

Efforts in Conscious Consumption

Owner Marcus Breach opened Grind & Press in 2014 after running a similar company called Grass Roots for 12 years. He’s donated end-of-day excess food to Oz Harvest, a food rescue charity, since his beginnings in the food and beverage industry. To Breach it’s simple: “It doesn’t make sense to waste food when there are people going hungry.”

Everything from the straws to the lunch boxes to the take away cutlery is compostable, recyclable, or reusable; there is a ‘mug wall’ at the Uni Hub store for those who forget their reusable coffee cup; and if you bring your own cup you get 50c off your coffee.Grind & PressGrind & PressInside the your Grind & Press Lunchbox

All of the food is made fresh daily by chefs who start (very) early in the morning. Led by experienced head chef Roberto, the dynamic team are also kept busy tending to corporate catering orders.

Make mum proud by ordering a Lunch Box filled with a well-proportioned mix of a wrap or baguette, a small seasonal salad, something sweet and a juice. The gluten-free seasonal Frittata Squares are a hit on campus, so is the Brekkie Wrap which features egg, bacon, a hash brown, cheese and barbecue sauce. For something a tad fancier, opt for an Antipasto Platter with a selection of cured meats, marinated vegetables, olives, cheddar, dried fruits, nuts and crackers. The coffee is made with single origin Nicaraguan beans from Bon Java. Freshly squeezed juices, smoothies and frappes are healthy pick-me-up options too.
