On a rainy morning on my way to City Park, I stopped here for a coffee and morning breakfast! The atmosphere was chill, it had a very local vibe to it.

Their breakfast croissantsn are enough for two meals for me, they are excellent tasting, and I get to enjoy eating them twice each day. Their dark roast free trade... More

We loved Fair Grinds not only for their delicious and fair-trade coffee and tea but also for the calm, soothing atmosphere that pervades this venue. The main lounge is quiet and relaxing and the outdoor patio cool in the Fall. Overall a great venue where one can safely face the day.
