Like a queen bee, a good cup of coffee is carefully tended to by workers, generates a buzz, and makes you scream if it lands between your eyes. Save face with today's Groupon: for $5, you get one 16-ounce fresh brewed coffee (a $2.15 value) and choice of panini (a $7.95 value) at Stomping Grounds Coffee House in Pitt Meadows (a $10.10 total value).
Stomping Grounds Coffee House utilizes local vendors and products to cultivate an accessible, community-focused cafe experience. Each day, the bean slingers at Stomping Grounds bake their own panini breads and load them with locally purchased organic meats, veggies, and cheeses. The Bonson's Landing panini invites seasoned roast beef to hop into bed with fresh bleu cheese, basil, and tomatoes, and the Village panini constructs a leaning tower of prosciutto, genoa salami, and roasted red pepper on an organic baguette foundation. Vegetarians can opt for meat-free options such as the fresh Slyce panini, which lands fresh mozzarella, basil, and a balsamic reduction glaze on a helipad of organic focaccia bread. After choosing a panini, customers can settle in with a 16-ounce cup of Salt Spring Island Coffee at one of Stomping Grounds' custom made wood cafe tables or on the lap of a amiable neighbour.
Besides being a welcoming destination for joggers, bikers, and hovercraft pilots, Stomping Grounds is also kid friendly, with a "little stompers" play area on the premises. Family owned and with an eye toward supporting the local community, Stomping Grounds Coffee House also works with Athletes in Kind, a local charity that assists families struggling with childhood cancers.
Stomping Grounds Coffee House
During the winter at Stomping Grounds Coffee House, guests can look over the steam of their coffee cups and out toward a rolling meadow surrounded by ranch-style fences. The windows and walls are rolled away during the summer, leaving the shop open to the warmth of Osprey Village.
Whether hunkering down or enjoying a breath of fresh air, guests can dig in to specialties such as fresh juices, organic coffee, housemade turkey chili, ham-and-swiss sandwiches, and locally made pastries. The eatery fires breakfast specialties for early risers, and it also arranges catering platters for large parties.
