I hate giving a review based on only one experience, and I qualify this based on the fact that I don't drink coffee. With that said, I went to Valley Grind to try their soup and a piece of quiche. While this may not be a big deal to other people, I was discouraged. The soup was reheated from a frozen soup (they admitted this fact), and the quiche is locally made by a production pie maker and reheated in a microwave or convection small oven. I was not impressed. I was also shocked that one of the servers was training a new person, and the trainer was wearing a button that said "THIS IS MY LAST DAY!" I thought it was very unprofessional. With that said, I think Valley Grind has been well received by many locals for their coffee which I did not try. I think it is a warm environment, but their staff needs to step up the experience from a human level a bit more. I also realize that most people don't go to a coffee shop for soup and quiche, but if they sell it, it should be tasty. It wasn't. I hope they improve this in the future.
