What You'll Get
Without coffee, society would literally crumble under the weight of unsound buildings erected by dozing construction workers and unfocused architects. Help buttress the fragile social fabric with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of drinks and café eats at Fairly Grounded Coffee & Tea and Fairly Grounded Too.
At Fairly Grounded, brew-believers can sip on coffees, espressos, and teas while indulging in a menu of local, sustainable fare. Quell cavernous appetites with a homemade ham and cheddar scone ($3), or a gobbler panini on fresh local focaccia, featuring herbed turkey, cream cheese, and cranberry sauce ($5).
Herbivores and urbanite cattle will enjoy a bevy of veggie options, including the vegan “meatloaf” sandwich ($5), as well as vegan-friendly cookies ($1). Mugs of Fairly Grounded's signature Pour Over coffee ($1.85–$2.30) offer creative caffeinaters a chance to pick their favorite bean blends, and specialty crème brulée lattes ($3.50–$4.85) sate sweet teeth with caramel syrup, Ghirardelli white-chocolate sauce, and Easter Bunny tears. Fairly Grounded also boasts an array of fair-trade organic teas for leaf-lovers with sophisticated palates.
Fairly Grounded gathers its microroasted craft coffees from Water Avenue Coffee in Portland, Oregon, providing a seasonally rotating selection of beans from around the world. Free WiFi is available at the café so sippers can check on local news, weather, and hot dog-eating contests.
