Directly outside of the Old Street tube stop is a wonderful bastion of Shoreditch cool in the form of Shoreditch Grind. The space is a semi-circular bank of windows that looks out into the Old Street roudabout and bathes the space in light. There is often mid- to late-90's hip hop blasting in the place, so if you are looking for a quiet, cozy café - this is not the place for you. They also...more

Upsides: they do delish coffee cocktails, great service and...more

I live nearby and would walk by every day thinking, what is this grungy, hipster place, without giving it further thought. As I started to get more into the Grind chain of cafes, I gave this place a try and have been coming back consistently ever since. I like it and it's funky.

The only real downside is that it's kind of small and the music is loud on the weekends.

Coffee is good. Not out...more
