SquareMeal Review of Royal Exchange Grind

This coffee-focused mini-chain has added several London sites to its portfolio since its original launch, Shoreditch Grind, back in 2011. Inspired by Melbourne café culture, Grind has struck upon a winning formula of great, small-batch coffee and solid, creative cocktails. Several sites, including Borough’s London Grind, also offer an all-day dining menu, with a focus on all-day breakfasts. At brunch, you might find cured salmon and avocado rolls with poached duck eggs and sprouts, for example, best enjoyed alongside Grind’s signature espresso. With a recording studio above Shoreditch Grind, music has always been a major part of the brand’s appeal too and informs its cool, youthful aesthetic. With decent prices and a relaxed atmosphere, Grind offers an appealing alternative to the usual coffee mega-brands out there.
