The fresh flavored coffee with a slice of handmade pie or muffins will make your entire week. The staff is always personable and treat you like family. If you've never been here .. you should go. Enjoy!!

Village Grind located in downtown Oswego offers a quaint environment. The coffee is hot and fresh with many varieties to choose. Not a coffee drinker, enjoy some tea! They offer a full service oatmeal bar with every add-ins imaginable! Their quiches are savory. It is a great place to enjoy time with good friends!

My husband and I took a walk along the river on a brisk day. A nice hot cup of coffee seemed to be in order. This isn't your "upscale" coffee house. It is a cute and cozy place. Furnishings are as if you visited someone's home for a cup of coffee.Love this place!

The Village Grind is where I go when I need "me" time. I get a cup of their toasted coconut or southern pecan coffee, and walk down to the river with it and enjoy a few minutes to myself. Their coffee is good. Their bumbleberry cobbler is awesome warmed up.... They sell little trinkets and cute things too.... The service... More

The food and coffee is pretty good, and the main selling point is the unique products and warm decor. My main issue is that the owner can be rude, so I don't go back often. Nice hangout spot for lunch or a coffee otherwise.

The coffee is fine, the food is fine, but the owner is very unfriendly. It is nice for people to go and have coffee, but if they want return visitors, it needs work on the friendliness.
