“Friendly Coffee House”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

Went here twice in 2 days. Comfortable place to take a break. Coffee was excellent. The service very warm and welcoming. Would seek it out again next time. Right on the main street in Mount Vernon.

“Incredible Coffee (and We Know Coffee)”
Reviewed August 26, 2008

In late July, my wife and I traveled to the Skagit Valley from our home in Sacramento. We saw the Same Old Grind on the main street in downtown Mount Vernon, and stopped in for a cup of coffee. My wife had secret hopes of an egg sandwich--her favorite thing--and I was allured by the fact that they roast their own beans, an uncommon trait. The coffee was delicious and fresh, and the egg sandwich--on a croissant with melted cheese and pesto--was an absolute delight. My wife ended up having a second.

Great service, a very nice staff, a clean and well-lighted place. We admired the local art work on the walls (which, I was informed, is changed monthly), and the comfortable atmosphere.

Went back later in the day for a grilled panini, which was fresh and delicious.

“Good cup of coffee”
Reviewed June 10, 2008

Both times I have been to Mount Vernon have been in the afternoon to meet clients. And it is always better to be early and have a cup of coffee than to be late, of course. The Same Ol Grind has a good house blend that sits well in the mid-afternoon. And the chocolate chip cookie wasn't needed, but appreciated. Clean restroom and nice staff.
