Open every day
Coffee: Guests
Also: Meals, cakes, beans
Coolness: Tempting cakes for healthy or gluten/dairy/sugar free types

Grounds (3♥) is on the high side of Stockbridge's main street, at the top of a short flight of stairs. This area has a large number of coffee shops and Grounds is definitely one for a nice brew.

They make a good espresso-based coffee, using a rotating series of high quality, specialty guest beans. You won't necessary know what's on offer until you go, but it'll be good quality, well made coffee that could be local or from further afield.

On the food front they set themselves apart with a range of gluten, dairy and/or sugar free cakes made by local specialist baker Grams, as well as wheat-packed more traditional sponges, scones, pastries and sticky cakes.

You can also tuck into sandwiches, melts, soups and salads among other things, (& they have gluten-free bread), all made with interesting ingredients that a cut above the everyday fare. You can also easily pick up take away food and cold drinks if you're passing by.

Grounds is a tightly packed space that is essentially one room with three  tables toward the rear and higher seating looking out the front window.

Their decor is lifted by the artwork of local artists and they also have some local homeware and gifts on sale, and some Keepcups.
