**I know. We've been saying it for months. Holy Grounds closed its doors on Sunday, October 30th, 2016 and as of today, June 30th, we have been closed for 8 months. Originally, we were informed that reconstruction would take 4 - 6 weeks. That has sadly not been the case. Everyone here is eager to reopen. Soon, we tell you. Soon, we tell our families. Soon, we tell ourselves. But the day IS soon. We never forgot about you. We never abandoned you. In fact, we need you. What good is a neighborhood coffee shop if we can't see our neighbors? But this whole ordeal has been a blessing in disguise; a chance to look at our shop and do the things we always wanted to do. Things that frankly, you will never notice. This long pause in our journey has only strengthened our resolve and commitment to creating a better Holy Grounds. So take a look at our new website, sign up for our newsletter, watch our Facebook and Instagram page. And when we reopen, bring your prayers, good intentions, crystals, energies, laughter, joy and love. We need it too.**

Opened July 12th, 2012, Holy Grounds Coffee and Tea is a neighborhood coffee shop and sanctuary for creativity, productivity and relaxation. Holy Grounds offers coffee, tea, pastries, salads and sandwiches, featuring a beautiful outdoor patio that balances a southwestern motif and the mantra, "Recycle, Reuse and Repurpose" to create a look unique to our owner and his vision. Our patio includes a gorgeous handmade fountain in the lower patio and a beautiful stage with a stained glass backdrop in the upper patio where we regularly host community events, open mics, live music and comedy shows.

Free Wi-Fi,  Indoor/Outdoor Seating, Party/Event/Training Rentals, Community Events, Support for Apple Pay and Delivery via Door Dash.

At Holy Grounds, we operate under three core values: 

Nourishment. Community. Culture.

It is important to us that all our activities, services and goods satisfy one or more of these values.


Holy Grounds buys, promotes and sells goods from local artisans of business. By supporting locally, we reduce our carbon footprint and create more economic growth and financial opportunities within our community. 

To this extent, we support:

Gaviña & Sons - Coffee

Roasted in Los Angeles. The Gaviña family's coffee story began in 1870 in the mountains of Southern Cuba. After their family’s arrival in Los Angeles in 1963, they carried on a tradition of passion for producing gourmet coffee by founding F. Gaviña & Sons, Inc. in 1967. While their focus has shifted over the years from cultivation to coffee roasting and wholesale distribution, the end goal has remained the same: creating fine coffee—and doing it the right way from bean to cup.
