(April 11, 2016)—I have been going to the Daily Grind for years now. It used to be located in a tiny space near downtown, yet moved to a larger location near Carlisle and Menaul within the last few years in order to expand. I eagerly followed them to their new location, and they have yet to disappoint. They have plenty of outdoor space for enjoying the lovely NM sunshine, and even more indoor space for those times when it’s cold and snowy out. Their pastries and baked goods are made fresh daily, and the quality is superb. Their soups are also made fresh daily, from only the best ingredients. In fact, I was just there a few hours and had a huge bowl of the chicken pot pie soup, and now I’m wishing I had ordered a second bowl as my midday snack (yes, I have a very healthy appetite). And we simply must discuss the key lime pie. Talk about biting into a little slice of sweet and sour deliciousness! The lime absolutely bursts in your mouth, and the buttery crust just begs for you to lick the crumbs right off the plate (yes, that was me. Don’t judge!). If you’ve never tried the Daily Grind, please get over there ASAP. Oh, and did I mention they recently began serving beer and wine? What a fantastic addition to their already incredible selection. You can thank me later. And be sure to come over and say “hello” if you see me in the corner licking my plate.
