Foursquare Tips

  • Laid back, free wi-fi, good homemade food and a "bottom-less cup" coffee option. I'm surprised I ever leave. ;)
  • Voted Best Salad in 2012 RFT Best of St. Louis.
  • Go to Foundation Grounds and order an iced drink, then marvel at the ingenuity of espresso ice cubes. Enjoy comfy chairs, super-fast WiFi, and (on occasion) Arcade Fire on the stereo.
  • Dragon green tea with vegan scones
  • Really comfy place to hang out, but they recently covered over all of their outlets and now only give you 1 hour of wifi with a purchase. If you want lunch, perfect. Want a place to work, not so much.
  • Are you a vegan hankering for an egg- and dairy-free brownie? Foundation Grounds has 'em, and they're more dense, delicately sweet and decadent than any "carnivore" brownie out there. (Betha Whitlow)
  • This summer, try the iced coffee... Even the ice cubes are coffee!
  • Goo balls, weird name, awesome cookie!
  • Get the iced coffee; it's the best in St. Louis ... and that's because 1) they use Goshen Coffee and 2) they use coffee ice cubes so the taste never gets watered down!
  • Come for a wide selection of food and coffee options, all emphasizing organic, gluten-free, vegetarian, dairy-free or vegan diets.
  • Hipster christians may pontificate at the table behind you while you're trying to work.
  • Get the iced coffee! Instead of regular ice that would water your coffee down, they use frozen coffee ice cubes.
  • Simply the best. Sandwiches, soups, baked goods, coffee, and especially, people who work here!
  • bona fide is best!
  • Drop by when there's some live music. Have something that involves espresso ice cubes...
  • Drinks at Foundation Grounds are easily made dairy-free and vegan-friendly, with soy and almond milks available.
  • Everything here is AMAZING! The breakfast burritos... sandwiches... soups... oh yeah, and the coffee!!! Love this spot. Staff is super awesome too.
