Relocating? Life in Lake Norman

Lake Norman’s Business of the Week: The Daily Grind Grill & Cafe



The Daily Grind Restaurant in Historic Downtown Mooresville

Daily Grind Grill & Cafe

If you haven’t discovered the Daily Grind then you are in for a REAL treat!  Originally located on  Brawley School and now in Historic Downtown Mooresville, Daily Grind is all about fresh, homemade and delicious, with an eclectic menu that is perfect for our diverse Lake Norman community.

I chose it as my first Business of the Week because not only is it relatively new and family owned and operated, but because it is one of my personal hangouts and I really want them to succeed!  Over the past year they has earned quite a good reputation with the locals including several NASCAR cup drivers and for good reason:  Great, fresh, homemade food and friendly service!

Daily Grind Grill & Cafe is a family affair.  Originally from New Jersey, the Ryan’s move to Lake Norman about 3 years ago and opened Daily Grind in August of 2007.  Son Chris Ryan is the Executive Chef and Mom and Dad help everything run smoothly.

From my favorite sandwich, the veggie panini with grilled eggplant, Portabella mushroom, asparagus, tomatoes, roasted peppers and fresh Mozzarella, to an incredible selection of burgers, sandwiches, homemade soups and salads, I challenge anyone to not find something they like on their extensive menu.  While many of their items may be offered with us “transplants” in mind, they also offer the down-home southern foods like crab cakes, meat loaf with mashed potatoes, Grouper and grits.

Pub chips are a must have…their own homemade potato chips are thick and crispy.

Did I mention that they serve breakfast all day?  Fresh omelettes, Frittatas, or decadent blueberry pancakes, Belgian waffles, French toast stuffed with blueberries, raspberries or peanut butter and banana with their special butter I have yet to try anything that wasn’t perfectly delicious!

And, when I am trying to be health-conscious they offer fresh fruit, oatmeal and yogurt with granola.

“Whether you’re in the mood for just a cup of coffee or a hearty meal…Whether you’re working up a big appetite, or just in the mood for a sandwich, The Daily Grind & Cafe has what you are looking for”!
