“Killer Coffee”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Killer coffee and bagels, and I say this as a Keystone resident and coffee snob (and perhaps a bagel snob as well). I am officially sold on their Americano's, and I've not had bagels that good in a long time. (Go for the flavored cream cheese, it's not advertised but it's awesome. The Jalapeño Cheddar and Cinnamon Brown Sugar are great.) Grapes & Grinds is great for kids, as there's an outside play structure and outdoor seating making it pretty family friendly. Inside, the atmosphere is clean, comfortable and artistic…easily the best coffee shop in Keystone to go and hang out. Also, free wine tasting for any wine connoisseurs that might want to stop by.

“Great Coffee!!!!!! Very Friendly Staff!!!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

This little place is perfect! We were in Keystone for 3 weeks so it was nice to find an actual coffee shop. We showed up every morning to start the day right! The coffee is excellent and the staff treated us like family. What more can I say?

“Wonderful place to unwind and refresh”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

We visited the coffee shop at the end of a busy day in the Black Hills. The decor is warm and inviting. It has indoor seating with tables and chairs and comfy couches. The outdoor seating area is also great with the bonus of a fun playground for the kids to unwind! We enjoyed the gelato and a great iced latte. There were plenty of places to re-charge our phones and devices. They have a good selection of wines and wine-tasting available, and a nice gift area for browsing.

“A Great Cup of Coffee at the Foot of Mt. Rushmore”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

If you blink you might miss it, but if you're looking for an excellent cup of coffee in an area of the country where this is sorely lacking, Grapes & Grinds is a must-stop.

A young man by the name of Clay greeted us warmly as we walked in, fresh from Mt. Rushmore. I had been jonesing for a decent cup of coffee since we'd left Colorado, so my surprise and delight were amplified when Clay poured me an espresso blend to remember. There are also local wines available for purchase in this charming little shop.

As was discovered, our visit just so happened to coincide with Clay's first day in business. If our experience there is any indication, Clay will enjoy a long, profitable existence there.

Oh, and be sure to tell him Nicky sent you :)
