There are 9 Grinds in London and we stumbled across this small chain on Instagram.
Originally opened in Shoreditch in 2011 there are now plenty to choose from. There are 6 cafes/bars and 3 restaurants. Th restaurants all serve a weekend brunch menu
We decided to visit the one in Holborn after a session at Barry’s boot camp.
The brunch was simple and delicious and the portion sizes were very very generous.
Annie opted for the sourdough toast with smoked salmon and scrambled egg and Rachel went for sourdough toast with smashed avocado and smoked salmon. We were both pleasantly surprised with how much salmon we got. Quite often places are very stingy when it comes to smoked salmon but here they certainly weren’t!
The atmosphere was nice with lovely music playing and we opted to sit in the corner on comfy seats.
We would defiantly recommend the simple brunch from Grind. As we weren’t thirsty we didn’t sample the coffee (yes shock there!) but we shall be returning for sure!
