If you live in or around London (or hey, visit frequently)- I’m sure the collection of Grind cafes and restaurants will probably be as familiar to you as Central line tube delays and rainy city weather forecasts. Dotted across central London in locations from Covent Garden, Soho, Shoreditch and Holborn (some of my favourite locations)- it’s hard to miss them, and good to know there’s probably always one in close proximity in case you need a caffeine or cake fix (I highly recommend their blueberry and coconut muffin)…
Anyway- one of the latest additions to the pack comes in the royal blue and plush pink toned hues of Clerkenwell Grind (with Exmouth Market also around the corner). With each menu offering something slightly different- the feel at Clerkenwell is certainly more that of a restaurant/bar set up and is reminicesent of my favourite Hoi Polloi in Shoreditch. Although we only swung by for a hot drink to warm up, the menu looked extensive and exciting with plenty of evening options, as well as their signature breakfast dishes, including acai bowls, matcha avocado and banana bread with frozen coconut yoghurt.
With another addition to the unmistakable interior and excellent coffee club, Clerkenwell is sure to become a perfect stop off whilst in this part of town (and look out for the trademark neon sign too)!
