Nice atmosphere, kind of cabin like inside. The owner and the gals who work there are very nice. I get coffee here quite often and have never been disappointed.

Stop into this establishment. Step up to near the counter, peruse the boards with beverage options, make your selection and choose a bread to go with if you like, from the glass case. You will be rewarded with great products served on real plates with silverware; unless you are getting carryout. We will go back again and again!

Valley Grind is a wonderful coffee shop (with all the delicious coffee drinks plus food) in the middle of a one-street town... They used to have a place to tie up your horse! They're good people, have wifi, couches, outdoor tables and chairs - places for your leashed pup to have a cool drink - just an all-around good place.... More

Bought coffee to bring home to friends as a gift. Great place to meet the locals and to get a great cup o'Joe! Lots of different blends, and really nice people working here.

Chelsea and her staff work at having such a high standard of service and quality with the daily offerings. Always welcoming, the atmosphere makes you want to stay. And her general store-fun and quirky. Great experience all around.

I love this place! They have locally made cold pressed juices, delicious coffee and so much more! They even have a few fair trade, green and/or locally made products for sale in their 'gift shop' area. The place has such a great vibe. And the employees are always kind. I stop here every time I'm passing through. Love it!

We needed a pit stop as we drove up the coast, and lucked into this lovely spot. The staff was charmingly friendly, the drinks were good, and the chocolate zucchini muffin left us craving more. Though we didn't order much, we felt no pressure to "move along" -- we felt very comfortable hanging out and reading, and stayed longer than... More
