  • One of the only good places in Ames that has outdoor seating. Try the tomato basil bisque!
  • Best spot in Ames for sitting outside on a beautiful day. The food in delicious and comparable to Panera on price. Great food, service, and hip atmosphere.
  • Fast and friendly service! The chai latte is delicious.
  • Music majors, Asians wearing more Polo than Mr. Ralph Lauren himself, & textbook hipsters. Nuff' said. Oh & their chocolate shakes are to die for!
  • I have been here several times and have always gotten great prompt service. And everything I've had on the menu is good.
  • The green tea mint is spectacular!
  • Try the roasted tomato and goat cheese crepe or ham and Gruyre croissant. Both are flavorful options.
  • They lock all their power outlets - a move as weak as their espresso.
  • If you're looking for something cold, grab one of their shakes.
  • Beer menu is fantastic. Try just about anything. (WiFi is either down, or super slow. Don't rely on it for your work.)
  • Service can be slow but food and coffee is spot on.
  • Stomping Grounds has been doing it right for many years. Even before they expanded into the space to the North, they were a great place for a great cup of coffee.
  • Hot Chocolate is delicious!
  • They serve much more than just coffee, they even have french crepes!
  • Probably wouldn't come here again.
  • Best Tomato Basil Soup ever!! Great service today too.
  • The chai lattes are absolutely delicious!
  • If you ever get good, prompt service, be extremely shocked.
  • Yemen Mocha, iced or hot, this is the best varietal they offer.
  • The ice cream mocha milkshake is awesome...
