try the white coffee beans

Great ice coffee. They also have white coffee beans that have double the caffeine of regular coffee. I don't live here, wish it was a chain so i could get their coffee other places.

We have discovered this little gem after living in the area for almost three years. I love homemade soups and this café has the best in the area. Many of the employees are past and present students from the local Culinary School. Everything is fresh and tasty. The owner Chris is friendly. Very comfortable spot to pick up a bite... More

I tried the soup and sandwich combo. The soup was a creamy potato that was clearly made fresh and the chicken salad sandwich equally delicious. Great CHAI too!

A treasure in downtown North Bend,Or.The Grounds is inside the bookstore on the Eastside of 101 as you enter downtown North Bend. The soups are homemade ,two flavors to choose from daily.I really like the breakfast burittos and crousants but the lunch sandwiches are good as well.The homemade cookies are worth the stop as well.Everything is a great value and...

Sorry, but the Grounds has closed. BUT the store it was in is still there and it is a book store. It is very good and they are supportive and helpful. They also credit paper back books that you buy there, for half price.

The soup here is amazing. Frank has three or four different ones every day. He really knows his way around a creamy soup. But they are a little spendy...around $6 for a bowl.

I must admit, I haven't even tried their coffee. I just love the idea of a bookshop and a coffee shop. I can give a review of the bookshop, though--they carry used books as well as new. The staff are helpful and I often find what I am looking for, despite it being a small shop in a small town.... More

On the Corner of Sherman Ave (Hwy 101) and California Street in North Bend there used to be an Interstate Bank. That red brick building now houses the Grounds Cafe and Books by the Bay. What could possibly be better than to have a good meal surrounded by books ?! Frank, the Irish owner, is also a good cook, and... More
