The Grounds cafe is closed. They used to have great soups and sandwiches but they are no longer in business. The bookstore attached is still there, but no more cafe.

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

Tucked away in the back of a book store, The Grouds is a favorite place for meetings over a light lunch or coffee. The owner/chef is Irish and makes a killer Irish stew an a number of other excellent dishes but his true claim to fame are his soups. I've enjoyed several over the years but his cream of mushroom...

Frank is the soup Nazi! His soups are incredible. I mean, really incredible. From his cream of mushroom to his spicy chicken curry, they are wonderful. This man makes amazing soup!
