    Don't see what the hoopla is about. There are better independent cafes in every sense.

    Nice cup of coffee and plenty of good veggie and vegan options and that is from a carnivore.

    A perfect local coffee shop. Great, hand crafted coffee drinks; vegan baked goods (and non vegan too); a patio tucked behind it.

    So many reasons to love. Friendly service. Homey atmosphere. Great bagels. Good for vegetarians and vegans. People watching is diverse and therefore better than the homogenous Starbucks.

    Yeah, it's crowded and you have to share tables - but that's what's so great about The Grind! And don't miss the bagels with hummus, cukes, and tomatoes!
