Our History

Our café was a vision and mission of Trinity Lutheran Church in Lisle, IL. After a few years of dream building, praying, and planning; God provided for us to open our doors in October of 2010 and have been welcoming the public ever since. From day one we have put an emphasis on quality and community and we are so thankful for everyone who has supported us!

Grounds was closed temporarily in March 2020 due to Covid. We had hoped to reopen in 2021.  Current plans are to review again in March 2022 before reopening. 


*Fun fact that makes Grounds for Hope a unique space --- Besides being an independent coffee shop, the building is also home to KidStreet Play Center and Trinity’s Green Trails site.
