A new cafe called The Grounds opens this week next to the Food Basics. Two Fairwinds residents, Patrick and Marlene Caicco, are co-owners of the new venture. Sounds like a great addition to our neighbourhood!
From an interview on StittsvilleCentral.ca: “The whole idea is serving the community that we live in… enjoying the community, giving back to the community, having fun with the community, doing some special projects with the community, supporting community events. We enjoy it, and it’s going to be a benefit to both.”
“The cafe that we’ve designed is conducive to people wanting to come and spend time just to chat, socialize, just stay and enjoy. The seating, the atmosphere is going to be a great experience for the local community. People who’ve been in here so far love it. They love the colour scheme, the seating, the look of the cafe… it’s warm, appealing.
We also have a plan to do an outdoor patio. so the summertime will be another great offer for the community. Have a coffee, have a smoothie, have a cold drink out on the patio.”
