I love this cafe because of how different it is. The dark vibes are a nice change, and the coffee is very good! Love the skull latte art, such a great idea! Worth a visit if in downtown Oly!

Maybe it's just Olywa, which is a unique city, that I found my visit here so ... unique. I loved the name and it came recommended. So although I am an out-of-towner, I found it odd that my companion had to turn over her purse...More

I'm picky about my coffee drinks. Few places in Olympia live up to my expectations, burial grounds is by far and away the best coffee house I've ever been to. It has a funky, downtown vibe, with some no nonsense, awesome baristas. Highly recommend any...More
