Visited South Park’s newest business recently –Wholly Grounds and
had a great cup of coffee and some excellent baked goods.
Wholly Grounds bills itself as a coffee house and a tea room, so I asked co-founder Amy about her tea. “I like a cup of tea instead of coffee sometimes myself,” she told me. “We try to have a broad selection of different teas, and if we don’t have something our customers are asking for, we get it.”
I also met Amy’s partner Tony, and told him how much I liked the atmosphere of the new coffee shop. “You should have seen it before,” he said. “The walls were painted bright orange. But painting the walls was easy. The hard part was the floor. I had to remove three levels of flooring before I got to the original wood floor. Repairing that and then refinishing was a chore.”
Tony also told me that he was planning to get a liquor license so he could offer Irish coffee to his patrons.
