Local coffee house at it's best!

The Daily Grind is a Baltimore institution and this location is bustling with everyone from students to professions to politicians and the occasional professional athlete. The coffee is great, the shop is quirky, and the service is great...cheaper and more character than starbucks!

Hot coffee and hot chocolates are a must for strolling in the area on cool/cold autumn days! There are often line ups but worth it!

One of my fave coffee spots in old Baltimore town is the Daily Grind. Located in historic Fell's Point right at the water's edge. The ambience alone is worth the trip. I also love their egg sandwich on a croissant. For the record, I enjoy an "Americano" coffee, decaf and black!

My boyfriend and I were looking for a little pick-me-up when walking around Fell's Point and we happened upon this great coffee shop. The cafe area of the shop was very open and airy with lots of natural light, very welcoming but had personality tattooed on the walls in all of the music and show posters for local talent. The...

I came here this morning for the first time meeting my friend for a coffee meeting. The personel not very friendly. It is a self seating cafe. The coffe was good. The Grind offers tables in the back which is bright and gives privacy. Toilets should be tend to and should be clean. The hot water handle was broken but... More

After our early morning Urban Pirates excursion, we settled in for a snack for the kids and much needed coffee for the adults at the Daily Grind. The coffee was excellent; the cookies and croissants fresh and tasty. There were alot of people on computers looking like they needed peace and quiet. Fortunately, no one seemed to mind our rowdy...

I am a huge coffee fan, and I love local coffee shops. The Daily Grind does not disappoint. I have only had their drip coffees, but my husband has enjoyed their lattes. Growing up in Brooklyn, NY I know a good bagel when I taste one. Yesterday, when I ate a lightly toasted sesame bagel, I thought, "Wow, they must... More

I've visited the Daily Grind a few times to try out their coffee but unfortunately it was pretty watered down each time I got it. The atmosphere is great and I loved the design of the store, it's a great place to sit and talk.

Honestly this is one of the best cappuccinos I've had and I am pretty picky about my coffee. Went with a friend and really enjoyed the coffee, atmosphere and the bagel and egg sandwich. Nothing bad here at all!
