I love this place. I've been coming in since they opened. It used to be the closest thing I had to a "hangout". As the place has prospered, they have continued to "improve and upgrade", (God Bless 'em), but I can't say I love the changes. I understand why, but I miss the old Sacred Grounds. From mismatched yard sale... More

I"ve been going to SG for over 9 years. This time it was significantly different and not worth the drive from Alton for the poor service and $$$. You order @ a counter with items posted on a chalkboard or baked goods in a cabinet. I ordered a latte and a scrambled egg with toast. I waited a lengthy time... More

Nice place to meet a friend or just enjoy a good book while you enjoy some great coffee and desserts. Its located in a rustic room in old downtown Edwardsville. Reminds me of a college coffeehouse from the 1960's. Nice atmosphere inside with a few tables along the street.

Scones are number one here. Fresh fruits,crispy outside and tender flakes inside. I am a scone maker and tester at most places. These far exceed any around the area. Vegetarian entrees at breakfast and get ready to beat the crowd.

This is a great place to either sip a cuppa Joe with a pastry or eat a meal. The choices are diverse, always healthy, with fresh organic greens, homemade for all appetites.

First stop every other morning for a scone and a mocha. The relaxed atmosphere is very nice and the baristas' at times are too laid back. At times it appears they are somewhat not engaged, especially some of the males. Could be they have shy personalities, but they are all always nice. If you are in a hurry running late... More

I've been here more than once. I would recommend coming at an earlier hour. More that half the food you attempt to order they run out of. I get the feeling the guy at the front counter though not unfriendly would rather be someplace else but there. The food I had is so so. The coffee is not bad though.

This used to be my go-to coffee shop. Unfortunately, the coffee is not as good as it used to be, the scones have shrunk tremendously, and the baristas are pretty indifferent.

Very eclectic place; think "hippy meets grunge". I've always had excellent service, the waitstaff is great about making suggestions on what to get (I'm very indecisive). Just a nice place to chill out and enjoy a snack.
