Here’s how good Urban Grind is: the stellar chefs in Galway city will often tell you that Pádraig and Lisa Lynagh’s coffee shop is their fave place, their destination for that vital and elemental cup of coffee. The UG house blend, Momentum, is crafted by coffee wizards 3fe, there are excellent teas, and the food is simply super-smart: coffee-rubbed beef brisket sandwich with horseradish mayo; chipotle hummus and red quinoa wrap. Great breakfasts get the day off to the best possible start, there are lovely wines and craft beers to enjoy into the evening at the weekends, and Urban Grind is another brick in the mighty wall of Galway’s West End. And trust Padraig and Lisa to manage to transform the urban grind into something that is pleasure-filled and unique, the real Urban Grind.
