Cute coffee shop in the "downtown" of Santa Ynez. Baked goods looked good, coffee was strong, multiple roasts to choose from.

My usual coffee is 2.40 and here it was 3.65. Super cool place with things to browse and buy but gouging the tourists. Nice to sit outside and watch the Range Rovers purr by.

Lovely place and great service but latté just too hot.....couldn't drink it for ages and I think the coffee probably started off good but after 15 -20 cooling off minutes it was past its peak. Please use a thermometer for frothing milk then you'd get 5 stars I think

Nice atmosphere, kind of cabin like inside. The owner and the gals who work there are very nice. I get coffee here quite often and have never been disappointed.

Stop into this establishment. Step up to near the counter, peruse the boards with beverage options, make your selection and choose a bread to go with if you like, from the glass case. You will be rewarded with great products served on real plates with silverware; unless you are getting carryout. We will go back again and again!

Valley Grind is a wonderful coffee shop (with all the delicious coffee drinks plus food) in the middle of a one-street town... They used to have a place to tie up your horse! They're good people, have wifi, couches, outdoor tables and chairs - places for your leashed pup to have a cool drink - just an all-around good place.... More

Bought coffee to bring home to friends as a gift. Great place to meet the locals and to get a great cup o'Joe! Lots of different blends, and really nice people working here.

Chelsea and her staff work at having such a high standard of service and quality with the daily offerings. Always welcoming, the atmosphere makes you want to stay. And her general store-fun and quirky. Great experience all around.
