Take in your dose of culture, community and history at one of East Los Angele's gems.
Whether you want to just have you cup of coffee with their "house blend" or be adventurous, and try one of their secret menu item, "Juan Two Three"
The original building was located on the road between the old Pueblo of Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Mission where many travelers would stop in for a rest and a drink in the shade by the fountain. One morning, Padre Jose Francisco was drinking coffee and accidentally spilled some on his cassock. He attempted to rinse the garment in the fountain and was transfixed when he removed the cassock from the water. The image of a coffee cup was now imprinted on the cloth! It could only be described as a miracle! Everyone present fell to their knees and blessed themselves. They had witnessed what became known as “The Cup of Holy Joe" (after Padre Jose Francisco). From then on, the rest stop along the road came to be known as "Holy Grounds" :) It's true if you believe it!They support our community!
We not only “Talk the talk” we “Walk it” too! Holy Grounds buys, promotes and sells goods from independent local artisans of business. By keeping it local we reduce our carbon footprint and create more economic growth and job opportunities within our community. We will continue to offer our customers rich and robust coffee, delicious teas, baked goods and original artwork direct to you from El Sereno!
