Sex, Coffee And Rock n Roll At Shoreditch Grind

 Original post by Cherie City

To get a great coffee in Shoreditch, the usual haunts are in and around Redchurch Street.  You can always rely on Leila’s Shop, Allpress and Present for a proper coffee, but venture past Hoxton Square towards Old Street and the options dwindle down to Starbucks.

Now, the big roundabout at Old Street just got a bit more interesting with the arrival of Shoreditch Grind, bringing sex, coffee and rock n roll to an otherwise drab part of the East.

I first spotted Shoreditch Grind on the bus back from Beirut and pretty much waited all week to get a nose in.  Today, Steven and I popped down for coffee and cake.

The cafe is small yet airy and bright and can fit a decent amount of customers.  I loved the exposed brick design, the communal table with old wooden school chairs and the bar seating overlooking the street – very east London!

London is in the middle of an Antipodean coffee renaissance and as you might have guessed, Shoreditch Grind continues the trends, with its roots in Melbourne coffee culture.  They even roast their own Shoreditch Grind house blend – now that’s dedication to the bean!
