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.
