Paninis, soups and the best cinnamon bun coffee drink anywhere. Lovely git shop. Service is always very slow so don't go there if you are in a hurry. A tad expensive but if you live out this way, it's nice not to have to travel to Appleton to get good coffee and bakery.

Usually stop at least once per week, great coffee, sandwiches, quiches and ambiance! We are lucky to have a place like this. Good for picking up a gift or a card.

This is kind of a unique place they serve different kinds of coffee drinks, bakery goods, and recently added panini type sandwiches and soups to there menu. The unique part come with what they have in the rest of the shop. They carry a wide variety of gifts, candles, jewelry, and a lot of other things. Kinda of a cool place to browse while you wait for your food.

They have a nice outdoor patio along the river. The country store has cute local items. The coffee seemed old/bitter, but the breakfast panini was ok. Restrooms clean.

Familiar grounds not only serves up great variety of lunch items, delicious soups and salads but also has specialties daily along with a candy, bakery and coffee bar. The gifts and extensive greeting card selection are also main themes and attraction of this very nice homegrown business. They also host music entertainment groups on various evenings.
