From the street, Valley Grind's appearance hearkens back to the Wild West, its double doors and long, covered porch reminiscent of an old general store. Inside, paneled pine walls surround large wooden tables and an overstuffed leather sofa, and the sound of an espresso machine whirrs as baristas plunge the steam wand into a pitcher of milk. Foamy cappuccinos and flavored lattes only begin the menu, however. The team also blends fresh fruit into smoothies and layers bagels with cream cheese, veggies, and meats. In Valley Grind’s adjoining shop, patrons can pick up cute gifts such as candies, cards, hand towels, and other towels that only work on forearms.
