Introducing: Groundwork Rewards!


We’re thrilled to announce the arrival of our brand-new loyalty program, Groundwork Rewards!

First off, there’s no physical card — simply enroll using your phone number and email address. What do you get for enrolling? We’re glad you asked! For every $40 you spend, you’ll receive a free handmade beverage of your choice. You’ll also get all kinds of special offers on a regular basis!

While we’ll be discontinuing our neighborhood discount, we feel that these new rewards will more effectively show our appreciation for your continued loyalty. Oh, and all current FiveStars members, you’ll be automatically enrolled in Groundwork Rewards, and all of your points seamlessly transferred!

If you have any questions or would like to give us feedback, feel free to reach out at

A Nationwide Coffee Fundraiser For The ACLU


Coming together to support the ACLU

Coffee. Tea. Community. For more than a quarter-century, we at Groundwork have made a point of not only doing business according to our values, but also living by them. Recently, some of our community, which spans the globe, has come under fire from the highest level of our nation’s government. We felt compelled to do something about that. This weekend (Friday through Sunday), we’ll donate to the ACLU 5% of all sales from our 12 cafes. And for every bag or can of coffee that you buy at those same cafes or on our website, we’ll donate $1 of your purchase to the ACLU. We are proud to do our part to join in a nationwide movement spearheaded by Sprudge.

You can also donate directly to the ACLU here.

Saturday Nights: Live Music in Hollywood

Your favorite coffee spot is also your favorite music spot. But you knew that, right? Every Saturday night, at 8:00 sharp, Groundwork Hollywood hosts live sets by local musicians. No cover charge. And did we mention that fresh-baked pastries are 50% off during the sets? (OK, we’re not a bar, but half-off delicious pastries isn’t bad . . .) We’ll see you there!

P.S. If you’re a musician or know one who’s looking for an awesome, low-key venue, give us a shout!
