We stopped in for Coffee after visiting the "Presidential Wax Museum" next door.
My husband's attention was quickly diverted to checking out the many unique wines.
The shop attendant stepped right up to serve a wine tasting session.
This was an unexpected delight. She knew everything about each selection and her best recommendations were also our favorites.
This is a very inviting coffee shop with Curb Appeal. But, I have to add...we would stop in again for the wine too !

This little place is perfect! We were in Keystone for 3 weeks so it was nice to find an actual coffee shop. We showed up every morning to start the day right! The coffee is excellent and the staff treated us like family. What more can I say?

We visited the coffee shop at the end of a busy day in the Black Hills. The decor is warm and inviting. It has indoor seating with tables and chairs and comfy couches. The outdoor seating area is also great with the bonus of a fun playground for the kids to unwind! We enjoyed the gelato and a great iced latte. There were plenty of places to re-charge our phones and devices. They have a good selection of wines and wine-tasting available, and a nice gift area for browsing.

If you blink you might miss it, but if you're looking for an excellent cup of coffee in an area of the country where this is sorely lacking, Grapes & Grinds is a must-stop.

A young man by the name of Clay greeted us warmly as we walked in, fresh from Mt. Rushmore. I had been jonesing for a decent cup of coffee since we'd left Colorado, so my surprise and delight were amplified when Clay poured me an espresso blend to remember. There are also local wines available for purchase in this charming little shop.

As was discovered, our visit just so happened to coincide with Clay's first day in business. If our experience there is any indication, Clay will enjoy a long, profitable existence there.

Oh, and be sure to tell him Nicky sent you :)
