“Local coffee place with lovely lunches and sweets”

Grounds For Celebration
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Mildly rustic, 60's decor with open areas, plenty of tables, and a quiet peacefulness that exudes a warm comfortable welcome. Usual espresso-type coffee drinks were very good. Lunch menu includes an unusual "fruit plate" for less than $10, consisting of a few slices each of pineapple, orange, bread, melon, plus a perfectly room temperature triangle of brie, placed in an artful appetizing way on the plate. The people behind the counter recognized me on my second visit, smiling greetings. Located on the edge of a quiet strip mall, there was easy parking. Surprisingly for a "Mom and Pop" non-chain coffee shop, there is also a drive-through lane.

I've gone here mainly for the free wi-fi, and usually bought a pot (press pot) of tea to sip on while surfing the web.
I do recommend the gelato.
The food menu looks good, but I've not had anything from it. It is mostly lunch type fare and desserts.
Of course there is coffee.
The atmosphere is very good.
I hear they have Scrabble Tuesday nights starting at 6.
