If you’re in Fishtown and need a casual and generally pretty quiet cafe to get some work done or grab a quick coffee, Steap & Grind is a solid choice. They have a good lunch menu with salads and sandwiches that will do the trick when you’re in the area and their daily iced tea flavors, like grapefruit and blood orange, are a good alternative to the liter of iced green tea you usually mobile order from Starbucks.
