I always enjoy having meetings at Grounds for Thought. Whether it is early morning or in the evening, the atmosphere is great and puts everyone at ease.

Grounds for Thought is more than just a coffeehouse, bakery or restaurant. It is all of those things, but it is also becoming a wonderful if unexpected concert venue featuring free concerts throughout the year. Usually the concerts feature acts that have appeared at the Blackswamp Festival annually in downtown Bowling Green. There is just a clearing in the middle of the shop for a stage. The lighting is provide by overhead clip lights, but it does the job and adds to the quaintness experience.

Grounds for Thought roasts its own coffee which I rate as pretty good. I drink my coffee with nothing in it, and I am rewarded by the wonderful roast profiles found here. The prices are fair for coffee and treats, and they even have an ice cream counter in the middle of the store.

This place is also a bookstore, and it sells limited cds. If that isn't enough Grounds for Thought is starting its own record label.

This place isn't just a must visit while in BG. It is a destination for us. A complete cultural experience is to be had at Grounds for Thought.

This is a place that appeals to all generations! I love to go there to meet a friend and have a chat over a cup of hot chocolate, or go there alone to do some writing that I've been neglecting, or use one of their many books for reference --- or to just read! And my daughter, 40 years younger than me, always used it for the same purposes. I know people that take their little ones there to give them a treat and look through some of the children's books there. This is a great place at all times, but especially during any inclement weather spell. Try it!

Whether you are visiting BG or a resident, Grounds for Thought is a great place to take a break. Grounds offers a wide variety of coffees, donuts and other baked goods.They also serve ice cream, sandwiches and cakes. All are outstanding. The owners are friendly and there is a neighborly atmosphere when you walk in. Grounds also has thousands of used books to choose from. If you enjoy coffee, donuts and/or books, be sure to stop in!

I have had meetings here, job interviews, and coffee time with friends. It is quiet no one bothers you and you can even reserve tables and private rooms. The coffee and tea are great and they also have ice cream and other snacks.
