Got introduced to this place by another traveller and never went anywhere else afterwards. Slightly away from the noisier parts of town Urban Grind offered a more peaceful environment, good coffee and free and stable wifi. Menu was good too.

One of those nights when everyone orders something different and you sample each others dishes and the conversation is simply "mmm mmmm mmmmmm"

went there today with my partner as it looked like an interesting cafe and the coffee smelled terrific. Upon entry we confirmed that we were having lunch and were asked to take a seat and wait for a menu. A waitress came to wipe the table but that was it.No further attempt at service was made. We were treated with absolute indifference. The cafe wasn't empty, but the wait staff were free enough that a cluster of them hung around the counter chatting the entire time we were there, occasionally glancing across at us.We left after 15 minutes and immediately obtained a meal and service at the Cheeky Monkey Cafe opposite. How's the food?God only knows, but we won't be back. You've been warned.

My wife and I decided to have dinner here after seeing the menu and having a cocktail here earlier.
We chose several small plates and an excellent bottle of wine (after the waitress allowed us to sample three different bottles!). As well as a splendid Affogato
The quality of food was stunning and service exceptional and all on a Tuesday.
We will be back tomorrow.

We ate at the urban grind on a rainy night in January, and although having to wait a short while for a table, the food was excellent with good service.
