Daily Grind

1726 Thames St., (410) 558-0399

Posted 9/15/1999

Yes, we will miss the grotto that was the Fells Point Daily Grind. It was a regular stop in our morning routine, tripping over those cobblestones and uneven wooden beams to get our morning injection of black gold. Then one day, we were stopped dead at the door by a sign that read DAILY GRIND--THIS WAY. The new café is everything the old one wasn't. It's sunny and pleasing to the eye, and it even boasts a level floor. Sure, an argument could be made for the historic feel of the old place, but really, it's all about the coffee, right? And the Daily Grind consistently brews the best cup in town--perhaps because it roasts its own beans just down the waterfront in Canton's Broom Factory. And now, with Homicide gone, we don't have to wait in line while those Hollywood types order their double skinny crapuccinos with a twist and sunny side up, or whatever the hell it was that took so long to make.
