I always look forward to stopping at the Daily Grind when visiting my daughter in Baltimore. The coffee is perfect and I always purchase a bag of the Scandinavia coffee beans to take home. However, this visit we stopped for a break after perusing the Fell's Point shops and found the seating area very disappointing. It appears that the owners... More

The restrooms are filthy. Signs said for customers only but staff gave keys to homeless non paying guys who occupied men's room for over a half hour. Left water all over the floor where the guy took a shower in the sink. Really disgusting and entirely preventable. Is this a business or a homeless shelter?

Always hit the Grind after getting moving in the mornings when we stay in Fells Point. They get you in and out pretty quick, always at least 3 people making coffee and food, and always smiling. Nice to sit outside and sip and see the waterfront wake up!

Coffee good but facility is in a shambles...unclean. Bathrooms are broken or not working. Space for seating is adequate.

Good coffee drinks and a very "local" laid back place to while away some time, connect to free wifi, and watch the world go by. They even have a special door for folks with dogs to get their lattes while walking "Lassie". It get's alot of use!

I always get a fancy, flavored mocha here every visit, now. I keep forgetting how beautiful their space is and I wish I had time to sit. It used to be an alley space between two houses that has been enclosed with rich woods and skylights. If you're looking for a place to sit and work on your laptop, you... More

Good hours, plenty of seating, decent food, good coffee, and good assortment of drinks. On the other hand, difficult parking, slow wi-fi, and can be crowded. Also not a fan of restrooms needing a key-access.

The Daily Grind started my day with great espresso over ice and had soy milk available, which made my day!

Loved the daily grind. My man and I enjoyed an amazing latte while the boys were excited over the free wifi. The place could use a bit of cleaning and the reading materials could use some updates but hey, we were there for coffee and a great coffee we received.
