Groundswell Coffee

Map & Directions 1342 Thomas Ave.
St Paul, MN 55104


City Pages' Description

“Throw stuff at the wall and see what sticks” is not a typical business plan, but so far it seems to be working for Seth McCoy. He’s the co-owner of Groundswell, an inviting little coffee shop in the Midway neighborhood that’s recently evolved into a casual cafe serving light lunch, happy hour, family-friendly weekend brunch, chef-driven dinner specials, and particularly outstanding house-made bakery items. “If there is just one word it comes down to it’s handcrafted,” says McCoy. “Everything we do is powered by people, from the wooden tables we made and the tile we laid to our pizza crust and the jewelry we sell next door.” Something good is most certainly brewing here and it seems like the neighborhood agrees. Power to the people.

    Go to Groundswell Coffee, get an amazing cold press and a brownie.

  • Nancy H. on 09/28/13

    Great little cafe! They have a limited menu of dinner items as well as incredible cupcakes and cookies. There is a little art gallery in the adjacent space with selections from local artists.

    The biscuits and gravy are HIGHLY recommended.

  • Slam S. on 06/01/13

    Dogwood Coffee and Bad Weather beer. Groundswell believes in local.
