There are Grind locations conveniently dotted across London, but our favourites are the Soho and Holborn cafes. These places can feel a bit hipster with their bare brick walls and neon, but with R Kelly and Biggie on the stereo and espresso martinis (suck it, Costa) in the evenings, it’d be hard for us to say we didn’t feel like bumping and grinding every time we stepped inside. The coffee’s reliably good and the service is always excellent, whether you’re looking for a cool place to catch up with a friend or to grab something to go.
