Rise and shine with Rise and Grind
Rise and Grind 3133 is a cafe that has been around for less than two years. The owner, Madeline, is very excited that the business is busy and I can tell you why: the food is good and the vibe is friendly.

Rise and Grind 3133 in Vermont

Located on Canterbury in Vermont, this little cafe is part of a shopping strip. A couple of tables and chairs invite you to sit outside while a floor to ceiling pane of glass offers you the same view from an inside seat. With a name like Rise and Grind, it leaves little room for doubt as to what they do best here - coffee.

Their beans are roasted in Melbourne by Niccolo, Prahran, and the coffee boasts a full flavour without the heaviness of a common Italian roast.

Yellow tulips from the florist on the corner

The large specials board greets you as you walk in and the wait staff bring you the clipboard menu. The tables are decorated with tulips in a jar of water, from the florist on the corner.

The menu consists of three pages; All Day, Little Grinders (Kids), and Drinks respectively. The range of food on offer is relatively vast with all the cafe favourites like smashed avocado and eggs Benedict.

Not in the mood for coffee, I ordered an orange juice. The cafe does not have a juice bar, although I do hope they implement one when the time is right because fresh juice with a quality cafe breakfast would make anyone's day.

I also went for the berry compote waffles with fresh berries ($16). They came carefully garnished with strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries atop two waffles and then topped with marshmallows and ice cream.

On the counter there is an assortment of sweets including homemade meringues for $3 apiece.

Rise and Grind 3133 also support school initiatives such as Rangeview Primary School's Parents and Friends Fundraiser whereby proceeds from sales of these Keepcups go towards the school's sustainability projects; a worthwhile investment into our environment and education at the same time.
