Coffee Shop Shoreditch Grind


This is one of three ‘Grind’ coffee shops in London. Holborn Grind review was one of my first posts here on the blog, and here is the first Grind in the city – Shoreditch Grind. I have never seen a coffee shop having it’s own building, and it’s amazing! It stands out quite good and I couldn’t pass by without checking it out.

Because of black walls it can look a bit dark, but round shape of the building with huge windows makes this space super cozy and light enough. It’s located at very busy roundabout in East London, which brings this place energetic vibes. When I took these photos in early September it was still very warm to sit outside. And Londoners typically prefer to sit outside, because any day without a rain is a good day already 🙂

What I always like  in Grind coffee shops is music! Which is not a big surprise, because one of the founders is an Australian DJ.  Their coffee meets expectations of a coffee gourmand for sure.  I always go for a cappuccino there.

Together with a great location this coffee shop is a good place for casual meetings.  In the evenings it turns into a cocktail bar, but this is a different story for another time …

This independent coffee shop is truly East London icon. Don’t forget to visit it ∗

  • The place looks so cool! I love exploring coffee shops here and there! When I travel I tend to find at least one in each city! This one has music too!!! How cool is that?!? Thank you so so so much for sharing: when in London my coffee-addiction will most definitely drive me here =)

      🙂 Hi Arianna, thanks a lot.

      Are there any good coffee shops in Morocco? When I was there I noticed they are more in mint tea 🙂

    Hi Katya,

    I absolutely love your blog, I’m so happy to have found it! While I’m from the States, I also have an affinity for London coffee shops.

    I visited London this summer, and had some great coffee at Farm Girl Cafe in Notting Hill (below). Not sure if you’ve been there, but it was wonderful, and would be a great place to blog about! 🙂
