Fresh Grounds Coffee

Minneapolis
$$$$

Coffee for a cause—that's Fresh Grounds in St. Paul. The cafe has been a non-profit organization from the beginning, providing on-the-job training and mentoring for at-risk youth, then funneling all their profits right back into Minnesota youth programs. Created as a community space, the coffee house encourages lounging and conversation with plentiful seating, a private event room, and low prices. With a menu of creamy coffee beverages, pastries, and local ice cream, as well as free wifi, it's no wonder this cafe has been so embraced by the community the serve.
