Most of us have been to Starbucks, Caribou and even some of the smaller chain coffee shops. Then there are the mom and pop type places but, meh just lack good pizazz. Well here at Royal Grounds it is a community event. Comfortable chairs, artwork, a staff of beautiful people. Oh and yes, the coffee is great, any type you... More

A very nice, warm atmosphere with friendly staff and great coffee...what more can you ask for? Small, corner coffee shop and is rarely packed. Definitely worth the trip to get a soy latte! My favorite coffee shop in Minneapolis!

Wow! I've passed this place a million times but just today went in and realized that everything is made right there. I had incredible sour cream coffee cake and the sweet barista (long braid) made me a beautiful latte. I sat on the comfy couch by the fire place and read while wonderful smells wafted from the tiny kitchen.

Royal Grounds is amazing. Staff is kind and welcoming, atmosphere is cozy and comfortable, and the food is beyond belief good. The crumb cake especially is outstanding. I continue to come back time after time!

Great, warm, local coffee spot with delicious pastries/cakes. Very welcoming, friendly atmosphere make the Royal Grounds a wonderful place for a quiet flat white if you are in South Minneapolis. One of the few places outside of Australia where you will see "flat white" (latte) on the menu.
