I feel like by now everyone knows about Grind in London, but talking to a friend earlier in the week, they had no idea what I was talking about! So i've made it my mission to make sure everyone knows about the awesomeness of Grind, home to best coffee and marble tabletops in London.
Grind is a series of coffeeshops dotted all around London, which has quickly become my second home when I'm not travelling or at work. Because theres quite a few out there, I thought I would show you guys some of my absolute faves. Th best thing about the Grind series is that each place can be unique and perfect for different situations. My first favourite, is Holborn Grind...
Each of the Grind chain's really reflect the area they're based in. So walking into Holborn Grind, theres always some men in suits and students furiously typing away on their laptops - not surprising considering LSE is just around the corner!
Which means, that Holborn Grind is perfect for a productive morning to get some work done, or some blogging done. I love waking myself up with one of their awesome beetroot lattes (not as gross as it sounds, I promise!) and munching on avocado toast.
I also find that the staff are generally a lot more friendlier here than anywhere else. It the perfect place to chill out and feel relaxed during your morning coffee.

Moving onto the much more cooler, hipster part... Shoreditch Grind. The staff are covered in tattoos with man buns to match but the coffee is equally delicious.
This one is a little less relaxed with its pumping music but I think I always feel the most creative at Shoreditch Grind. It's a great one for catching up with friends over coffee in the late afternoon until it gets darker and you can switch over to Espresso Martinis.
Oh, did I forget to mention Grind turns into a bar after-hours?! Special mention goes out to Soho Grind which is perfect for first date drinks, super intimate and cool.

Exmouth Market Grind
Last but not least, Exmouth Market Grind. Whilst the rest feel more like cafes or bars, Exmouth feels the most like a proper restaurant.
The perfect place for a Sunday bottomless brunch (bottomless prosecco for only £12! The cheapest I've found so far) with your girlfriends as well as for date night over a candlelit dinner. They really do it all.
Grind is definitely one of my favourite place's to hang out, eat and drink in London - it just never fails to be totally awesome!
