Stopped in for dessert and coffee. Pie was fantastic, crust was one of the best if not THE best I've had. We tried their apple and lemon pies, both were fabulous! Drinks were cappucino and a local brewed ginger ale. Cappucino was good but not very hot. Interior of this place is an old apothecary and it's really nice.

Unassuming on the outside, but once you step inside your expectations immediately go up! The decor is charming, quaint, warm, & inviting. Love the sofa alcove area in back ... Perfect place to enjoy some coffee & pie.

Great assortment of sandwiches and soups to choose from. The loaded baked potato soup was delicious! We also had the chocolate chip pecan & chocolate chess pies...sooooo good!

Great service and a relaxed setting with amazing food!

We stopped by for lunch--the menu had lots of variety, and our meals were excellent, service was fast and friendly, and the renovated hardware store décor really charming. Don't miss this one!

We went to the Gathering Grounds two days in a row while we were in the area for the weekend and both times were great. The staff are lovely and very friendly and the eclectic decor is fun. The first day we had coffee and pie. Lemon chess pie and apple pie, both of which were delicious. The second day we went back with our friends for lunch. The order got a little mixed up (but it may have been our English accents) but they sorted everything out immediately with no fuss. The food was delicious. The first day we were there we met a guy who' s grandfather used to own the shop when it was a hardware store. He remembers hanging around the store when he was young. Very cool!

A delightfully creative restoration of an old hardware store. The kind of place that invites you in just by looking in the door. Service is great. Menu has a nice array of choices. Desserts (pies and patisseries) are super. Nice selection of coffees.
