Rise & Grind Cafe was opened by Powhatan local, Shannon Croll, in December 2021. Born as an extension of Shannon's love for baking, the cafe offers a range of drinks, bakery treats, and the best ice cream around.
The cafe is bright and open offering a place for the community to simply gather, have a cup, and a laugh.
Rise & Grind carries a number of local artisan's work for sale, including candles and coastal-inspired art [ shophartart.com ] made by Shannon's goddaughter, a VA Beach local.
"I just want people to walk in the door and love it here and be happy, hang out with their friends, socialize and gather, foster new relationships. That is what it is all about."
