GRIND & CO. LAUNCH FLAGSHIP SITE IN LONDON BRIDGE
January 2015: Following the success of Shoreditch, Soho and Holborn Grind, the Grind team are set to open their fourth site, London Grind, in February 2015. Their largest opening to date, London Grind sits riverside at the iconic address of 2 London Bridge. Finding inspiration in Melbourne, the brunch capital of the world, and produce in the bustle of Borough Market, on its doorstep, London Grind marks the group’s first foray into proper food.
Shoreditch Grind was born four years ago as a simple, ultra high-quality coffee offering with music at its heart, beating from its East London recording studio. Since then, the Grind has turned its attention first to perfecting, the now-renowned Grind House Espresso blend, and then to cocktails, centred around the Grind Espresso Martini which is regularly named amongst the best in London.
Now, the Grind turns their efforts to food, bringing a discerning, locally-sourced brunch to SE1, with dishes such as Poached Eggs with Quinoa and Datterini Tomatoes, and One-pan Eggs with BABY Spinach and Pistachio. Once evening arrives, the menu offers Pan fried red mullet, cannelini beans, swiss chard,, or Rich Lamb Stew with Spinach Gnudi, and cheeses, meats and exceptional oak-smoked salmon - sourced fresh from Borough Market every morning, and changing with the season.
Burning the candle at both ends, London Grind will serve a small list of signature cocktails, beer sourced from local brewery Fourpure and their full food and coffee offering, late into the night. London Grind makes its tribute to the city with its focus on gin - offering a carefully curated gin tasting list - served Pink, Collins or with Tonic, and each paired with a bespoke garnish.
“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.”
We’ll see you at the Grind.

About Grind & Co.
The first of the Grind's, Shoreditch Grind was born when East-Londoner David enlisted his friend Kaz, a DJ from Melbourne with a passion for coffee, to help turn his father's mobile phone shop, a stand-alone perfectly circular building perched on the edge of Old Street Roundabout, into an Espresso Bar.
Kaz had badly missed the taste of the Melbourne cafés he'd grown up with, and was determined to re-create the taste of home. Unsatisfied with anything available in London at the time, he worked for months to develop a custom blend, and eventually, the Grind & Co. House Espresso Blend was born.
Shoreditch Grind grew quickly, in scale and reputation, and is now established as one of the busiest cafe’s in London, and something of an East-London icon. Later, the pair added a recording studio upstairs, and started opening later, serving Espresso Martinis and other cocktails and an expanded food menu.
Subsequent branches followed in 2014 – Soho Grind on Beak Street, Soho and Holborn Grind, part of the Hoxton Hotel, Holborn.
