cafe serving real food for real people

We're dedicated to bring you some classic good ole favourites and mixing it up with our own newly created dishes, because following any diet or food lifestyle choice, shouldn't mean that you're missing out. In fact, following any choices about what you eat should mean that you're being more creative and using a wider variety of ingredients in new and exciting ways!

At Real Grounded, we want to normalise eating plant-based meals. We want it to be inclusive. We don't want someone not being able to eat or drink here, because there's no options for them at all that won't send their allergies kicking into overdrive. We want you to be able to bring ALL your friends here to eat and drink, and be completely satisfied.

We'd like to slowly change the general opinion on eating greens... everything can be tasty if you make it right.

well-being & passion

Founded by local residents in 2017, the cafe was created to fill in the gap in dining options in the local area. Real Grounded was the first plant-based cafe in Glebe.  It's a place to enjoy superb coffee and comfort food.

"Just had the most delicious gnocchi and drinks! An amazing menu selection and all vegan! Cruelty free with amazing taste - will definitely be coming back for more."

FRANCESCA PRONESTI review from Facebook

"Celebrated my 1 year veganniversary this morning at Grounded. I was greeted by friendly staff and welcoming vibes. Breakfast was delicious, especially their scrumptious scrambled tofu! Also very reasonably priced for a filling brekkie! I highly recommend paying a visit to these guys."
