언젠가 시간이 되시면, 혹시 메나사스를 들리실 일이 있으시면,

다운타운에 있는 그라운드 센트럴 스테이션에 들러 보세요.

창문엔 시들이 붙여져 있고, 커피 하우스엔 그림들이 단정하게 달려 있어요.

커피향이 흐르는 그 곳엔 매 주 토요일 작가들이 출몰하지요.

서로 대화를 나누며 배움을 갖는 그곳,

들러서 시간을 잠시만이라도 붙드는 것은 어떨는지요?

On a rainy day in April,  Matthew Brower, the owner of Grounds Central Station, was nonchalantly brewing  coffee, and the scent hold on my sences that was flowing on Main Street.  I entered the store, greeted by poems posted on the windows, a tiny bookshelf in the corner littered with books written by local authors , few obscure paintings by children and adults on the walls, and a huge blackboard towered behind the counter listing the menu items and specials.

This establishment is frequented by office workers, housewives on a stroll, and frustrated writers to get away from the monotony of their daily routines. Grounds also hold a weekly poetry night as well as book signings for local writers to showcase their talents.

“I opened this coffee-house the day before on my 30th birthday, and I started  the busboy to the dishwasher and that lead me from the bottom to the way up. Now I am 34 years old, a husband and a father of one and one is on the way.” said Matthew while juggling around the counters.

His specialty is coffee, but dabbles in many types of sandwiches to give the customer options when they are trying to keep tempting of caffeine at bay.

Grounds Central Station is at the heart of Old Town Manassas, catering to a variety of customers with the place filled with retirees in the morning while the youth tend to frequent when the Sun is down.

Grounds Central Station‘s hours are:

7am – 8pm (weekdays)

9360 Main Street
