Clerkenwell Grind

Splattered all across Instagram is the beautifully decorated Grind branch in Clerkenwell. Major interior design goals – marbles tables paired with pink and navy velvet chairs and brass detailing; it definitely makes an Instagrammable location. 

We both ordered their smashed avocado with poached eggs on a sourdough toast (£8), which was delicious but to be honest, nothing beats the avocado toast at Mae and Harvey. We also ordered the green smoothie (£5) which consisted of spinach, banana, coffee, almond milk and cocoa nibs; and their amber smoothie (£5) a blend of almond milk, agave, vanilla and natural yogurt. The amber smoothie was my favourite, and I'll definitely be recreating it at home.

It's the perfect location to catch up with friends – good food, good company and a nice atmosphere. We ended up chatting for hours, without being pestered by staff. If anyone wants to go again, I'm totally up for it! – I need to try those pancakes... and their cocktails...
