Only place on Topsail Island to offer capuccinos and lattes. Free WiFi and great service. Comfy place with couches, overstuffed chairs and flatscreen TVs to hang out with friends. Highly recommended. Cindy Johnson Jordan The Daily Grind is a great stop while visiting Topsail Beach. My 10 yr old daughter even wanted to take her book over to relax on their couches and read. One of the best white chocolate/cinnamon cappuccinos ever :) The chocolate/chocolate chip muffins are very good, also. Jeremy was a great host and didn't hesitate to help us anyway he could. Thanks Daily Grind for a great coffee/muffin/relaxing experience.

The Daily Grind has great coffee drinks, smoothies and more. I love to get a beverage, relax, and utilize their complementary internet. The setting is like being in your own living room.
Brandon Summy Rucker The Daily Grind has captured the aspects of creating a customer experience that people seek out and gravitate toward. To name a few: The layout flows well – The furniture is comfortable – The lighting, fixtures, colors and tones accent the mellow atmosphere – The music is always right (pretty much a carbon copy of my “Favorites” play
ist) – It’s always clean, bathrooms too – The prices are impressively low – After a couple visits you’ll be part of the family – And more
I could definitely go on – but I want to leave some surprises for you!!!
Mike Paulson The daily grind is great.I'd move in if they would let me sleep on the couch!!!!!!!!!!! Gabriella Piedra Divine Headed to Topsail for the night, first stop - the daily grind!! Keith Clark Best place to hang out while visiting the Topsail Beaches. I don't drink coffee or tea, but I needed a place to stay connected to the world. Of all the places I have ever visited for away from home WiFi, this was the best experience I have ever had. By my second visit, I felt like I had a "home" on the beach and lots of friends. The coffee must be as fantastic as the staff because the same friendly regulars were very plentiful every morning. Thanks to all the folks and especially the early morning crew! Kelly Marshall

What a great coffee shop. Nice and cozy and great coffee. Thank you!!! Dean Roberts I was made a GREAT cafe' con leche this morning at the Daily Grind We should see it on the white board Colette Fleischmann-Schnulo I love it!!! Lesa Lucas McCabe Absolutely the best of everything; owners ( yes Jeremy thanks for the Cinnamon!, staff, atmosphere, and coffee. The best place on the island to sit and relax or just chat with friends. So glad they are here! Scott Wheeler Chocky frappy whippy baby!!!!! PC Mcminds Take it over Starbucks any day! Best coffee on the island or any where else Lance Knowlton Highly highly recommended - great place to enjoy yourself or get work done (when you have to) and have some outstanding coffee. Hands down the best coffee I've had anywhere. Jeremy and his team make you feel very welcome - great atmosphere Mark Foster My favorite coffee shop!! Love the Monster Frapps!! Justin Maxwell This is the best cofee shop on the island the atomsphere is amazing the music and the people are great too! T he Daily Grind is the best coffee shop on the island, I love this place I love it :) Jimmy Thrower Its a fantastic place to be with great coffee. Thanks to Jeremy and Tracey. I could tell I was in the right place as soon as I walked in. Jeremy greeted us with his upbeat personality. I love the coffee and look forward to my next visit. You guys ROCK the coffee world!!! Emily Everett Finally -- great coffee on island for the early birds! Jeremy and his crew are the best way to start a great day at the beach. Brian Embry Good coffee, good atmosphere, great people. Jeremy and Tracey are one in a million when it comes to hospitality and bringing comfort to a public business. The doors say 10pm for closing, but it's not unusual to be sitting inside come midnight enjoying fresh cup of java. The hospitality extends beyond the doors as well, you might fi
nd yourself outside with the owners enjoying a casual chat at a picnic table, as I did last night at 11:30pm.
