Profile Last Updated: April 01, 2009
Because of its central location and amazing hours, The Grind is a regular haunt for starving students, artists and writers – the ideal place to listen or join in on philosophical and political discussions, or do some silent studying. Two large rooms with salmon-coloured walls create an open and relaxed environment, and the easy-going staff reflects this attitude while serving up orders. It’s also in the perfect people-watching spot, right on Main Street adjacent to many funky shops and cool restaurants.
What do you do when you have a group assignment due tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. and it’s 10 p.m. the night before? You go to The Grind. Open 24 hours, seven days a week, this Main Street coffee staple features free Wi-Fi, ample seating, huge wooden tables in the back room to spread your work out on and a great grungy-yet-hip vibe.
Drinks and food are available around the clock at The Grind. The café’s got a pretty stellar selection of teas, listed right by the cash register so you don’t have to squint to choose your fave. The front room is spacious and bright, with a great free newspaper and magazine rack right by the large front window. Sidewalk seating is available year-round, even on the coldest of days, so you can enjoy a fresh-brewed cup of coffee or the daily soup special outside, if you like.
