My wife and I were intrigued to find out that one of the most popularly recommended things to do while visiting Olympia is a coffee place (of all places). We went in and ordered our drinks and love the presentation, and more so enjoyed the staff's casual demeanor. I felt like I was among friends, rather than a bunch of pretentious serving staff itching for tips. I would totally recommend this place to anyone and everyone, looking to have a good cup of coffee, with an awesome presentation (which might make you not want to drink it), while being surrounded by a rad and friendly group of people.

Burial Grounds fits perfectly into this dark space. It looks like they've been there forever. I love Firefly Roaster's coffee (formerly Hawthorne's)! Unfortunately, I have been treated poorly by the baristas on my last two visits. This morning, I was apparently standing in the barista's way of getting behind the counter. She was snarky about it. The visit before, this same barista (slender with blond and black hair) was also unaccommodating. Poor service and snarky baristas may be fashionable with some circle in Olympia, but I do not wish to pay for it.

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!

We make it up to Olympia a few times a year, and luckily decided to pop in here on a Saturday night. It made me feel very nostalgic - like I was back in college again. Disclaimer - if you don't like GOOD music - this place isn't for you! ;) We were warmly greeted by the staff who treated us like regulars... they were so cool! Did I mention the music? You will surely be exposed to a nice dose of Dead Kennedys, The Ramones, or Sex Pistols. Definitely good stuff. They also have edgy deco art adorning the walls - along with a few funky signs. If you like the goth/ punk scene, this place will definitely appeal to you. We'll 100% for sure be back next time we're in town... Fine Holiday Fun! Two thumbs up!

Decided to stop by while visiting Olympia. Friendly staff and patrons. Love the library and outdoor seating area. Coffee tasted pretty darn good. Will be back, thanks!
