Great coffees and wonderful foods always freash. I visit this coffee house frequently and have never been disappointed. Always a well made espresso packed properly giving the perfect creme. They also serve fresh meals and bake their own pastry's which over the top mind blowing. The atmosphere welcomes everyone although different times of the day attract different age groups. I go when ever I feel the need. You should try them.
best in Edwardsville.
They serve Mississippi Mud coffee, which is amazing.
They bake the best pastries, breads, deserts you will find.
Laid back local atmosphere.
Great lunch. no meat, but delicious.
Terrible Experience!. We were so excited to find this cafe as we traveled home over the holidays. We read the reviews, looked at the menu online and called ahead to be sure the cafe would be open when we arrived in the area. We called our order in and were greeted by a very rude and sarcastic male voice who told us that the kitchen was closing at 7:20 PM rather than at 11 PM as we had been told a few hours earlier. There was no attempt to assist when we told him we were only 7 miles away. We recommend you stay away from these surly folks!
My experience at local coffee house (Sacred Grounds).
I don't know if there is a best or perfect coffee house for me because my likes and dislikes are so unique.
What I will say about sacred grounds is how I feel when I visit there for my coffee pleasures. I would enjoy the entrance a little more if i didn't have to navigate through peoples, but that's just me. There is always a display of fine art by local artist along the walls. The service leaves you feeling relaxed. Some attendants make better espresso than others, but I find that most places. Different times of day draw different crowds. The roasted beans and varieties are top grade and very aromatic...emmm! Now a few small changes would make this coffee house prime on the charts. At the present time, this is by far the best coffee house in the county and most adjoining areas. Nice people here too! : )
More than an Oasis. Living in town seven + years. Coming from the fickle North East, Ive seen 'em come n go. SGs, imo, has set the course for down town Main Street, Edwardsville. Since opening, 7 + years ago, of late many other eclectic and otherwise diverse establishments have drawn along in 'her' pioneering wake. Being first, though, is not enough in a competitive small town "scene". So far so good. SGs seems to be going with the flow in a maturing environment. Steer clear of the ersatz! Keep up the real difference!
Cozy. I love sacred grounds. I have been going to sacred for the last 2 years at least once a week. The atmosphere is so great. They have local art work that is displayed on a wall which is allways changing. They have board, card, and trivia games that you are free to use. One of the coolest things is they have toy ninjas hidden around the shop and you get to search for them. The workers are so fun, especially this british girl who rocks my world. They also have a great eggplant sandwich to accompany their wide choice of coffees and teas. :-D
Let's make some room for improvement. People are too easy to give out 10 - do you really think this little spot is worth a 10? Nah, it's great sure, but they could work on their service and cleaniness. Great coffee and breakfast!! We need more places like Sacred Grounds it this sleepy town.
