In the Heart

Of the Downtown

People come from all over to frequent our friendly little corner cafe & bakery on 42 Main Street in Stafford Springs. Families, friends, townies, bikers, hipsters, commuters, artists, and all walks of life come together at Middle Ground for delicious coffee & teas, tasty sandwiches, fresh organic salads, our daily home-made baked goods, and more!

Our cafe occupies the historic bank building, sitting above the railroad tracks with a view of the waterway. You might even find yourself in a front-row seat for a passing train! Come visit us and find out why this little haven has become a favorite spot for many!

What's on the Menu, Middle Ground?

We support local agriculture and regularly use fresh organic ingredients from Willow Valley Farm and Red Fire Farm. Our greens are ALWAYS organic. We get our milk from The Farmer’s Cow, a local dairy farm in Lebanon, CT.

Here are a few fan-favorite recommendations: coffee; coffee again, flavored iced-teas;  home-made chocolate chip cookies; cheddar-chive scones; did we mention coffee? and our much-loved huevos rancheros wrap!
