Great Coffee (+ food!)

We have an exclusive line created by LaJava Roasting House. Our Bold Ambition is our darkest roast, Inspiration Overflow is our medium roast, and Decaf Devotion is, you guessed it, our decaf blend. All of our food is made from scratch. The bakery, salad dressings, soup, and even our bread sourced from Voyageurs Bakehouse – it’s all handcrafted just for you.

We support local farmers and gardeners, and even grow fruits, veggies, and herbs from our very own Grounded Garden. Partnering with Seasonal Co-Op, we bring in fresh seasonal veggies, maple syrup, and honey sourced throughout Wisconsin. Serving food from garden-to-table is one of our goals. We are excited to be expanding into indoor gardening as well to beat the harsh Wisconsin winters.

Francisco - About Us

Great People

We are partnering with local agencies and school districts to provide onsite job training. This program helps build pride and dignity by providing opportunities to uncover and develop abilities.

We are all about changing the way people see people. We want our guests to feel like they belong to something big! Where people come together, share a meal and a story or two, each of them changed forever.

Big Hearts

Work is a place to belong, socialize, have purpose, and feel valued. At Grounded Café, trainees are given the opportunity to work in every part of the café. To learn every task, build confidence, and discover their strengths. This empowers them to experience the pride and dignity of participating in the community. It’s been a resounding success – more than half of our trainees have found jobs in the community.

Your purchases make this possible.

Can one cup of coffee make a difference? You bet it can!

Our Story

Grounded Café was built on the belief that all people have value and that within everyone are possibilities, given the right opportunities to succeed. Grounded Café was born to break down stereotypes and ageism. To shine a light on the strengths and “abilities” of seniors and persons with disabilities. We help to build pride and dignity by providing opportunities to uncover and develop abilities.

Where we are today

We are all about changing the way people see people. We want our guests to feel like they belong to something big! Where people come together, share a meal and a story or two, each of them changed forever.

Grounded Café focuses on abilities through a job skills training program. The people serving you are either older adult mentors or adults with a disability gaining job skills.

Work is a place to belong, socialize, have purpose, and feel valued. At Grounded Café, trainees are given the opportunity to work in every part of the café. To learn every task, build confidence, and discover their strengths. It’s been a resounding success – 15 Baristas-in-Training have taken their new skills to employers in the community.

Thank you for supporting this little downtown café with a BIG heart!

The best takeout lunch spot downtown! They have a great, healthy menu at affordable prices. The winter salad is incredible. The mission of this cafe to support persons with disabilities in our community is very admirable.  ~Molly
