My hubby and I enjoyed a relaxing, delicious lunch here yesterday. As soon as we parked in front of the Gathering Grounds, the atmosphere was so inviting and had a lazy, Sunday feel to it.

We reall enjoyed this place. Went back the next day for Breakfast also. They coffee is Superb, evan my 16 year old son loved his decaf. The sandwiches were freshly made with great ingredients. The freshly baked pastries and cookies are worth the visit.

We came in just to grab a quick coffee, got lured to stay by the look of the pie, and stayed for dinner after we saw the menu. Everything we tried was excellent! They even make their own gluten-free bread that they will happily exchange on any of their sandwiches. Since one of the group has Celiac's we were thrilled... More

This place is great! Had one of the best Iced Americano's I have ever had in my life. Also, the quiche is to die for. Highly recommended. So glad I stumbled across this place while traveling through town.

Great, tasty food. Love the atmosphere and they had a kids' menu that is not advertised. My kids played chess and checkers as we all enjoyed a great weekend lunch.

Visitor Center recommended this place and it was a good choice. Especially good coffee, and quiche was a welcome find. They also had some gluten-free offerings, very good. Food and service were great.

The menu is full of lots of choices.The day we ate there they had a dozen pies available. The service was friendly and we stayed after lunch for coffee and a sweet treat. The atmosphere was welcoming and we didn't... More

Went to visit Gathering Grounds having read a bunch of negative service reviews. I must have gone to the wrong place. Our service was 5 star. Stacey gave us a menu in 2 minutes. 5 minutes later she took our food order. The food came out promptly. There was no wait for drink refills, dessert or our check. Stacey was... More
