“Coffee so strong, it can’t be legal.”
Located between Ogden and Emerson on E. 17th Avenue, Illegal grounds is in an old brick home, with a coffeehouse on the first floor and law offices upstairs. The owner is a lawyer (thus the name), and the inside of the house has a clean and professional air to it, without feeling corporate. There is a good amount of seating as well.
They serve Coda coffee, a fair trade organic coffee.
