Cafe Grounded

Located in Guilford.

A local breakfast and light lunch establishment, which also serves limited menu dinners Thursday-Saturday nights.

We have never sampled the lunch or dinner menus, so I can only speak to the breakfasts we've tried.

The restaurant is housed in an old airplane hanger-type building.
Think: the barracks in Gomer Pyle, USMC.

It's a relatively small space occupying two levels.

Downstairs, you can, in good weather, dine on the front patio.

Inside on the main floor are the counter, kitchen and a few tables.

We always opt to sit upstairs.

A few of the tables are indeed old airplane seats.
And I must say, they look very uncomfortable.

Otherwise, your choice of seating are of the bistro variety.

Choose your table carefully, as some are not level.

The food:

Ah, to a (displaced) southern boy, there are few things better than biscuits and gravy.
And Cafe Grounded serves, as a complete breakfast, some delicious, if very heavy, biscuits and gravy.

Easily my favorite thus far.

We've also tried the eggs, apple wood smoked bacon, sausage patties, home fries, and grilled veggies.
All are very tasty, especially the home fries, which have a hint of spice to them.

You won't be raving about the place, but you will know you can get a nice meal in a nice local place.
