When it comes to a fresh cup of coffee, nothing beats blends roasted locally. That’s precisely what Abundant Grounds Cafe’s baristas stick to, crafting specialty drinks including espressos and cappuccinos using the cafe's very own java, plus some from nearby Rev Coffee Roasters. Though coffee’s warm aroma dominates the cozy, exposed brick space, it’s far from the only option on the menu. Beverage-wise, Abundant Grounds’ selection encompasses everything from fruit smoothies to frozen hot chocolate, winner of the English Major Coalition’s “Tastiest Oxymoron” prize. To complement each pour, cooks assemble cafe classics like pesto-topped breakfast sandwiches and grilled veggie paninis. The cafe’s displays also overflow with baked goods, ranging from gluten-free scones to muffins chockfull of bacon and cheddar.
