Duncan Gardner always dreamt of opening his own coffee shop. Now his dreams are coming true right in the heart of Eastown.  

Grateful Grind Coffee (1499 Wealthy St SE) will be opening on Wealthy Street next door to Yesterdog, and will be centered around music and a lively atmosphere. Gardner has big plans, including decorating the side of the building with a mural designed and created by Eastowners and surrounding businesses.

“Everyone’s input is important,” says Gardner.

Children are more than welcome at Grateful Grind Coffee, and Gardner is featuring a large chalkboard in the shop to give parents a break while they sip their morning cup of joe.   

Grateful Grind Coffee wants to fit the needs of the weekend crowd or for those looking to wind down after dinner. Gardner will feature coffee from Higher Ground out of Traverse City. He also plans to add desserts to his offerings.

EDIT: In the original article, we misreported the name and coffee bean source. We changed Grind House Coffee to Grateful Grind Coffee and changed Common Ground to Higher Ground out of Traverse City not. Thanks to Adrian Hirsch for pointing our our mistakes.
