Notes
Entering our 5th year, Fair Grounds Coffeehouse offers a variety of homemade comfort foods (that just so happen to be vegetarian/vegan!) in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. People seem to like our waffles, french toast, grilled sandwiches, wraps, cakes, cookies, smoothies and coffee drinks. Plenty of gluten-free options, too!

    Be very careful and thorough when ordering here. Their gf menu used to be more extensive but they were using the same waffle irons/panini grills and it was making people sick. For awhile they refused to serve celiacs or intolerants, just people who had "preferences." I've been back a few times since they added back some gf options and took the signs down telling me to go away. 😂 Last time they had issues with my waffle batter (or iron, I can't remember) and they asked me if they could make me pancakes instead. They said they would clean the griddle and I ate my favorite dill potato flavor as a pancake. This has been hit or miss for me over the many years, but has been ok the last few times. Even as my gluten reactions are more strong and obvious than ever when I do have an issue. I have always found the wait staff kind and helpful.

    I had the Mediterranean omelette. It came with roasted potatoes and tasty multigrain gf bread for about $8.50. It was very good. Our order consisted of two sandwiches and two omelettes - it took about a half hour from ordering to getting the food. So the service is leisurely with friendly staff.

    Great food, price isn't too bad either! Sometimes they offer day-old GF baked goods and they are two for the price of one; they'll heat it up for you and it tastes perfectly fresh!
