I didn't expect this type of place in Ely, but I'm really happy to have stumbled upon it. Such a large inviting space with a lot... of coffee options, pastries, sandwiches, and soup specials. The staff was super friendly and helpful as well. Seems to be a barat night with tons of wine and beer on tap as well. A great place to hangout and relax. Read more

Coffee was decent but the chicken wild rice soup was a 1 out of 10. Broth based soup that basically tasted like water with under... cooked carrots, weird square chicken pieces and wild rice! Without a ton of salt it was inedible!! And at $7 for a smallish bowlit was easily the worst deal in town! Read more

I stopped in for a great cup of coffee after leaving the Boundary Waters. I like good, black coffee. Northern Grounds did not... disappoint on the coffee side. The service was below average, though. 3 employees continued their personal conversation while Istood at the register with my wallet in hand less than 5 feet from them. They ignored me until they were done with theirmeaningless conversation, then they provided indifferent service. If the service matched the product, this place would be 5star. Read more

Great little coffee shop with pastries and sandwiches. Also serves wine and beer! A fair amount of seating, including some comfy... chairs, plus clean bathrooms. Read more

Hadn't tried this coffee shop yet, that's why we came here. Inside was very nice and ordered few lattes. Employees weren't the... friendliest and our lattes. Not good. Couldn't taste any coffee and my vanilla latte wasn't mixed well. Tasted milk one sip,then coffee and then a gulp of syrup. We won't be back. Prefer log cabin coffee. Our drinks always taste great and staff alwaysfriendly. Read more
