It's A Grind Coffee House

Welcome to It's A Grind Coffee House

It’s A Grind is a specialty coffee house concept established in 1994 to provide high quality gourmet coffee, espresso beverages, better for you healthy cold drinks, a range of home baked foods in a comfortable, and a community-focused neighborhood environment. Nowadays, coffee shops are on every corner and anyone behind the counter will call themselves a “Barista.” At It’s A Grind, we take pride in that title and with that, we do our very best to produce the best possible beverages for each guest. Any Barista will tell you that it all starts with perfectly extracted espresso and the only way to produce perfectly extracted espresso, is to ensure that it is hand crafted by a barista. Our coffee is Micro-Roasted, meaning the beans are custom roasted in small batches to bring out the best characteristics of the beans: rich, flavorful and aromatic.

Excellent customer service! Refreshing addition to the community. I asked the owner/manager to include vegan options and he assured me he would. Next time I came in I was able to enjoy a yummy avocado bagel!😊
