I was introduced to The Fine Grind: A Coffee Bar in Little Falls, NJ, about four years ago by my friend. Upon hearing that it is a coffee bar, I was excited to check out this new coffee opportunity. It was an eye-opening experience to see that there is a whole world out there for coffee connoisseurs like me outside the usual Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts. Upon entering The Fine Grind, I noticed several options for seating including small tables, taller tables, and couches. The walls were filled with local art for sale, and there was a corner with coffee goodies for sale including t-shirts and locally made craft items.
I was greeted by a friendly waiter who seated us and handed us a menu that was designed like a scrapbook. It was overwhelming at first, but I knew immediately that I was going to have to come back to try out as many coffee drinks as I could!
Long story short, I have been visiting The Fine Grind for the past four years, about once a month or more. I have never been disappointed. They truly have something for everyone: coffee, espresso, tea, smoothies, sodas, etc., so I can bring non-coffee drinkers with me. I always find something delicious on their seasonal drink menu. If I am not feeling adventurous, I order their plain coffee, which is bold and wonderful. They also offer delectable café style food choices and desserts. It is difficult to pass up their stuffed cupcakes and fancy biscotti.
The service is great; they do not rush you, however if you are in a rush you may need to visit the counter to pay. I also like that they are open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, so that makes it easier to catch up with friends. The crowd is a mix of all ages, friends catching up vivaciously, and people studying quietly. Sometimes they have local musicians perform as well as open mics, book signings, and seminars.
I would highly recommend The Fine Grind: A Coffee Bar located at 101 Newark Pompton Turnpike (Route 23), Little Falls, NJ, to anyone who is looking for a truly unique coffee shop experience! Visit their website at http://www.thefinegrindcoffeebar.com/
