Blooming Grounds is one of my favorite lunch getaway spots. The ambience is very relaxing, especially on the far side of the building from the coffee pick-up bar. I love the paninis, but I wish the experience was a bit more consistent. Wait times can sometimes be very quick and other times beyond slow. The sandwich is always a little... More

I am not a coffee person, but a friend got me started on this years ago and I just love them!! Blooming Grounds are the BEST!!! Their wraps and paninis are so good too! Would highly recommend them. In the evenings it is a nice quaint place for wine, appetizers, and they even have music some nights!!

Blooming Grounds is great place for a cup of coffee, glass of wine or a beer. The food is fresh and tasty and not your typical fare. It is informal and excellent.

Blooming Grounds recently expanded to include room for more dining and entertainment. They have average food but their pastries are very good. They've expanded their menu to include a few diner options as well. This is a coffee shop primarily and best for a quick lunch. They only have a few options for vegetarians but some of their meat served... More

Wandering around on a chilly night, killing time before a movie, we came across Blooming Grounds and stopped in for a hot chocolate. They made a great one! We were sorry that we'd eaten dinner elsewhere, because the choices at this little cafe looked great (especially the baked goods in the front counter. They looked home-made!)

Only had one meal here. I had the half panini and half salad combo. Yummy. She let me sample their olive artichoke spread before ordering it. Thank you! That was very helpful. The salad I chose was excellent! Chicken Craisin Bleu Cheese. I would order both again!!! Maybe next time a whole panini and a whole salad! The young adults... More

nice coffee house and place to drink wine. Has live entertainment each week and is open from breakfast to supper. Panini sandwiches are good. Wine is good but pricey. Small bites after 4pm are eclectic and fun. Pastries and baked goods are not mainstream. Wait staff is good generally. Small area to sit outside. Presentation of food is utilitarian.

Great coffees and teas is just a beginning. We've been to Winona many time and there are lots of coffee place. But, Blooming Grounds is way above the others. Whether it's breakfast pastries and quiche, or wraps/salads/panini's, they are all tasty and reasonably priced. Always friendly service and lots of activities like post show events and music
