This is a fabulous coffee shop. The vibes are amazing. It has free WiFi. The coffee tea latte etc are all delish. They have homemade sweets and other things like soups. Very nice place to go with a wonderful sister or friend. We love to go here. Just yesterday ☺

I've always raved about The Grind being as good or better than the finest boutique coffee shops in larger cities. Last time I went however the drip coffee was substandard, watery and lacking in any body. I chalked this up to a single bad pit but went again last week with the same experience. It was so bad I actually... More

Always very welcoming, always fresh coffee and pastries. Great location to finish or start a stroll of the Trent Riverside Area.

Nice coffee place, can get crowded and seats are close together but this was at peak time, huge variety of yummy desserts to accompany your coffee. Nice and warm coming in from the cold, nice clean interior, also washroom very clean.

This is a great coffee stop in the heart of town. They have delicious cakes in a pleasant setting. If you're simply on a waljabout along the canal, stop in for a refreshment.

Love the cappucchino and tea, the seasonal specials, the desserts, the staff, the atmosphere... I just love it. Great place to grab a seasonal drink. I Find the environment great for socializing but also a productive space to get some work done.

this is not a restaurant, so it is hard to rate when the questions refer to meals and children. It is appropriate for kids if you are treating them out to a specialty hot chocolate, Italian Fountain drink, smoothie or cookie. This a very clean, friendly, welcoming CAFÉ. We go there every Friday while waiting for my daughters to dance... More

Have been to this establishment a few times. You can purchase some yummy desserts, sandwiches & coffee to enjoy inside or take-out. There is a municipal parking lot right beside it but it's not always easy to get a spot as other establishments & their patrons use it & there is a Farmer's Market that occupies space depending on the...

It was a beautiful day and I had a bit of time on my hands. So I stopped in at The Grind for a takeout coffee to enjoy outside along the river. It was a small purchase, but the server was very friendly, and the coffee was delicious. There were a few groups of people inside, enjoying the atmosphere.
