I have been going here for years and always get ice coffee. Recently it has tasted watered down. I don’t know if they have changed the brand they use but I hope it goes back to how flavorful it used to taste!

Always excellent! The lattes are fabulous, the teas are fresh, sandwiches are great (esp. the Jerwich!), and the bakery additions (especially wheat free in my case) are delightful.

Working in Stafford, there's not a lot of options. Middle Ground does a good job. I go there to eat maybe once a month. Nice quiet atmosphere and friendly service.

Ordered bacon egg and cheese on ciabata bread. Fresh and yummy. Went early and it wasn't that busy. I like almond milk in my coffee and they had it. Great start to my morning.

Great place to go for coffee or a quick bite of food. However if you are in a rush...don't bother. Service is very slow. If you have the time, go and enjoy.

I love to stop in here! The food is fantastic, the coffee is excellent. Friendly service. I know people complain about lengthy wait for food , but I have not experienced that yet. I've been there at least 1/2 dozen times. Usually weekend lunch time....More

Nice place to stop for a coffee or a quick bite. It is not the run of the mill eats and you will find things not offered in chain stores. More of a home made sandwich or quick bite.
