Brought to you by the guys behind Shoreditch Grind, this new espresso bar is located conveniently next to Holborn stop (aka I get to grab a cup of their Grind House Blend every morning on my way to class).

Coffee joint by day, cocktail bar by night. I was finishing up some reading here around 5PM when all the lights were dimmed and they brought out the candles. All of the sudden, the place was jam packed with hip, young workers grabbing a drink after their day at work. 

Their Latte.

Roasted so smoky and smooth – cannot wait to come back for more.  

They also have a small selection of quick bites at the front of their check out counter. 

This place definitely attracts the younger scene. Would recommend more for grabbing a drink and socializing with a friend rather than working because of the limited amount of seats and ongoing lounge music in the background. They've got a solid selection of coffee and their baristas are all quite friendly, so they've got my business!
