Foundation Grounds serves tasty salads. Clearly caters to a specific audience and enjoys a devoted clientele. Unfortunately it serves instant refined oatmeal instead of old fashioned, or steelcut, or pinhead, or Irish oatmeal. Of those mentioned, only the old fashioned style can be cooked quickly, that is within 2-5 minutes. It is as easily cooked as instant, and can be served hot. I ordered the instant, requesting only 1/2 the water suggested by the directions on the bag. My request was ignored. I received a watery, lukewarm serving.
I also purchased a soy latte that was not served hot. The porcelain large cup was a nice touch, however.
For 7a.m. the music was much too loud, making it difficult to enjoy quiet conversation.Pros: locally owned, serves vegan dishes, small
Cons: serves instant oatmeal, loud music
