TFG opened its original location on Main Street, Little Falls in June 2005. The business outgrew that small space after four years and moved around the corner to their current location in the Farnese Plaza on Newark Pompton Turnpike. The Fine Grind became popular for fresh roasted organic fair-trade coffees, gourmet loose leaf teas and creative beverage concoctions such as “The Vanilla Snuggle” latte and their signature “FroHo®” (frozen hot chocolate). Besides the extensive beverage menu, customers also find it hard to resist the tasty desserts and pastries. There is always a glass jar of fresh baked chocolate chunk cookies and gooey cinnamon rolls on display to tempt your sweet tooth.
What really sets The Fine Grind apart from the competition is their innovative food menu with table service. Popular menu items are the homemade hummus platters, Italian grilled cheese made with fresh bruschetta, and egg sandwiches on fresh bagel sticks that are delivered daily from the Bronx, NY. It has always been important to the owners of The Fine Grind to have something on the menu for everyone so dietary restrictions are not an issue! They have plenty of gluten free and vegan options and also offer a variety of milk substitutes for those who are dairy free.
The success of The Fine Grind over the past 14 years can be attributed to their amazing and loyal customers and TFG’s involvement in community both inside and outside of the café. “I believe that the most important part of owning a business in a small town is being involved and giving back to the community,” says Rhonda Mallek, owner of The Fine Grind. TFG hosts live music events, monthly art exhibits and seminars that appeal to a variety of interests and causes. It is also common to see them at local school and town events selling coffee and pastries or giving away tasty samples.
