Spotlight on Small Business
Community Grounds Coffee Shop. Founded in 2003, the café represents all things local. Community Grounds gets its coffee from Atlanta-based Java Vino, the makings for a mean cup of joe. Daily specials, coffee cakes, espressos and more give the surrounding South Atlanta and Lakewood Heights neighborhoods a great start to their day.
Community Grounds is more than a coffee shop, it's a place for people to connect and thrive. "Our coffee shop is a neighborhood hangout," says owner Jeff Delp. "Community Grounds offers its patrons free wifi and a place to network, and this fills a great void in our area."
The café provides space for local events and celebrations, anywhere from PTA meetings to a Christmas program that helps more than 1,000 people. Whether one wishes to warm up with a cup of hot chocolate or with nice conversation, Community Grounds is the place.
