Leafs and Grounds

How support this community-driven, family owned business during our event

"We serve coffee, but we’re not your typical coffee shop. Inspired by the great hole-in-the-wall coffee shops of the Bay Area, where conversation blooms and writers, artists, activists and intellectuals make their mark, we’ve made a conscious decision to slow things down. Come get comfy and stay awhile."


Purchase a Drink!

As we get closer, there may be some new flavors under their Summer Specials menu! They also have plenty of classic menu items like espresso, lattes, and teas!


Scope out the fresh pastries!

Made fresh everyday are their delicious pastries! Scones, danishes, and empanadas! These all change daily, so we'll keep you in the loop for what to expect on June 28th! 


Pin your business card!

Leafs and Grounds has a bulletin board on their wall where they encourage artists to pin up their business cards or even flyers!


Say HI to the owner!

They're honestly the nicest people ever, so please introduce yourself! They're film buffs too!
