... The above ground jewel in Luray!

A tastefully prepared lunch, fresh ingredients, optically attractive plating, pleasant service and an artsy eclectic atmosphere.

My daughter and I stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. She had a ham sandwich and the corn and black bean salsa. I asked for just a grilled chicken breast with the corn and black bean salsa too. The chicken was hard and dry with absolutely no flavor. When I told the waitress she asked if I would like mayonnaise... More

The people working here are very friendly and the physical surroundings are clean and interesting. The food was excellent, but the portions were small.

We stopped by after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. We were greeted right away and sat down to read the menu, I ordered the roast beef sandwich with swiss cheese and French fries, my husband ordered the chicken wrap with fries as well, unfortunately our waitress didn't quite understand, so he opted for the blackbean salad. As we waited for... More

We enjoyed their Friday night dinner. Delicious food and friendly waitstaff. Glad we saved room for the delicious chocolate chess pie!

We happened upon this place last year as we were looking for a gluten free rest. They do not disappoint at all! Everything is fresh and delicious. Service and staff is amazing! New location is beautiful!

A welcoming lunch spot with incredibly fresh ingredients. Our family of five sampled soups, sandwiches, salads and sweets...and more sweets. The sandwiches featured large portions of just cut meat on incredibly fresh bread. Sides included pasta salad, chips, fries and a couple of soup options. Salads were large and tasty. You may want to order your desserts first as some... More

Staying nearby and first stopped in for a late lunch. We were very glad that we did because we visited two more times during the weekend that we spent in the area. The food was excellent, as was the friendly service. The atmosphere was quaint/trendy/hip, very interesting, visually (kudos for the very clean bathroom!). Nice view of the street and... More

We went in for lunch the first day of the move to the new site. Busy and scattered but what a great meal and excellent coffee. They served our grandson his cookie before his meal, which was probably a mistake but boy did it thrill him. And did I say cookie? It was the biggest cookie Ive ever seen.

Gathering Grounds is a perfect mix of quaint and modern. If it's good weather, their outside seating is super pretty. Their key features are that they provide a full service coffee bar along with brilliant food. Initially, I went for an espresso drink. However, their menu made me hungry. I ended up ordering an eggplant burger (though options are vast)... More
