Lovely coffee shop with many vegan options - Edit

I love Foundation Grounds and stop by here at least once/month. Excellent coffee, and good food too. They have almond and soy milk for lattes, and you can request either for hot coffee in place of creamer. On their food menu, they have a vegan tempeh salad sandwich that is delicious, and a really tasty hummus sandwich that can be made vegan by omitting the cheese. On Saturday mornings they offer vegan quiche until they run out (tofu-based). The bakery case always has a few vegan options, typically scones, muffins, and a dessert. Most staff there are friendly and helpful. If you're in Maplewood and need coffee or a snack, it's definitely worth a stop.

Small Veg Menu, but Tasty Food - Edit

Foundation Grounds is a coffee shop and cafe. The menu is not large, the main vegan options offered on a daily basis are a vegan tempeh salad sandwich (which is delicious), the goddess hummus/veggie sandwich (vegan w/o feta), and salads (which you can add a scoop of tempeh salad to). They often have other vegan items that change from day to day, such as vegan quiche and soups. There is a fairly large selection of baked goods, always with several vegan options, such as choc. pb bars, molasses cookies, pumpkin muffins, etc. FG is located in downtown Maplewood, a nice community surrounded by small shops.

Pros: Vegan baked goods, Great tempeh salad, Cute atmosphere

Cons: Small non-baked goods menu

Great Food - Edit

We come to St. Louis a lot but always have such a hard time finding vegan breakfast. I saw Foundation Grounds on here and called and asked if they had vegan options for breakfast before we went. The vegan tofu scramble burrito was delicious as was the vegan strawberry coffee cake. The coffee was great, atmosphere was great, and nice people too. Glad to finally find a place to eat breakfast in the city.

Pros: a

Hoping for Better - Edit

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

Nice Cafe w/Vegan Options - Edit

This is a cute little independent coffee shop/cafe located in Maplewood. The menu appeared to be largely vegetarian with some vegan options. The menu is not extensive, but had some veggie wraps, vegan tempeh salad sandwiches (this was very good), soups, salads, baked goods including vegan ones such as brownies, cookies, and scones. There is an emphasis on organic ingredients.
The prices are not cheap, but typical of this style cafe. My meal of a sandwich, fruit, and brownie was approx. $12.50.

Pros: Vegan/Veg Options, Independent Coffee shop/cafe, Nice Atmosphere

Cons: Some Difficulty Parking, Bit pricey

Nice coffee shop with decent vegan options. - Edit

Foundations Grounds is a wonderful addition to the Maplewood neighborhood in St. Louis, MO. I liked the set up of the place, it was very well decorated, and all of the staff members were very friendly. There were plenty of vegan items to choose from, all made in house, such as the oreo cookie cupcake, some other vegan cupcakes, pumpkin muffin, some other vegan muffins, vegan soups/salads, and some vegan sandwiches. The food I got was good and I will surely be back here during my next visit.
