Daily Grind has been roasting and brewing fresh beans to java junkies since it first opened in 1976, and it now boasts an expanded menu featuring casual café eats served within both of its cozy coffeehouses. All day, chefs concoct hot breakfast selections such as the andouille-sausage sandwich, which sizzles beneath melted cheese, a farm-fresh egg, and house-made hot sauce, and belgian waffles are bedecked by gems of fresh fruit and a swirl of whipped cream. The Reuben’s stack of house-made corned beef, nestled between two slabs of rye bread, mingles with sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and russian dressing in a culinary peace treaty similar to the one that ended Poland’s attempt at veganism.

Freshly brewed coffee, specially roasted at the Albany location, dons hot and iced disguises in the form of lattes, mochas, and traditional joe. Sippers can visit the Troy location for open mic every Thursday evening from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. and sit back to enjoy live music or sign up to slam poetry books onto the floor.

Daily Grind

Lee and Barrye Cohen have been roasting and brewing fresh beans into caffeinated elixirs since 1976, when they first began expanding horizons with then-unheard-of espresso and cappuccinos. Using the same trusty vintage coffee roaster they used back then, they continue to roast aromatic gourmet beans. They brighten mornings and afternoon slumps with traditional coffee or energize lattes, mochas, and chai with rich espresso. Chefs cook up a menu of updated classics daily with local farm-fresh eggs and housemade sauces, stacking egg sandwiches with andouille sausage and deli sandwiches with pit-baked ham.

On select evenings, melodies and spoken words can be heard emanating from the Troy location, which hosts an open-mic night where local artists play music or slam poetry books onto the floor as guests sip cocktails and wine. The Cohens are proud of their local roots, and give back the loyalty they've received by frequently donating to local charitable causes. Daily Grind also has an online store, which outfits kitchens with loose-leaf teas, cappuccino machines, and gelato machines from brands such as Baratza, Gaggia, and Nemox.
