The AG has excellent coffee, homemade foods and fresh baked cinnamon buns and muffins. Mmmmm...I wouldn't go anywhere else. Stellar service and great friendly Cafe atmosphere exists here. Thanks Rose and staff for giving Burns Lake a place with big city style!

Best atmosphere and eggs benedict in town! I have tried other restaurants in Burns Lake for breakfast and Alternative Grounds is by far the best place to eat. Always friendly service and amazing food.

The cozy atmosphere, delicious menu and great service are all part of dining at Alternative Grounds. The choices are many; including non-gluten items, tasty goodies and many different hot and cold beverages. The new location has better parking as well.
