At ALTERNATIVE GROUNDS, our vision & mission is to provide a real alternative to the conventional fast-food choices presently available. We take simple, fresh ingredients & add passion & creativity so as to offer you something that is nourishing & revitalizing! In setting our goals, we attempt to maintain a balance between people, planet & profitability. Our belief that your health matters, is the foundation of our commitment to refrain from the use of deep fryers, microwave ovens, MSG, aspartame & Splenda containing products. In keeping with our efforts to promote responsible use of the environment, we encourage used coffee ground pick-up, composting & prohibit the use of styrofoam containers!

Offering both breakfast & lunch menus, our fresh & innovative selections vary daily, but typically include upscale sandwiches & wraps, grilled panini, made-in-house soups, nutritious salads, waffles & fresh baking.

If it's liquid sustenance you're seeking, we're sure to have something that's just right for you. Grab a steaming cup of our highest quality organic fair-trade coffee, a latte, a cappuccino, mocha, a fine gourmet specialty coffee or choose from our incredible selection of premium Metropolitan tea blends.

The next time you find yourself in Burns Lake, perhaps on the way to the Alaska Ferry in Prince Rupert, to ski in Smithers or just to take a little drive, we invite you to stop by. Whether you choose a freshly made muffin, baked from scratch on the premises, or indulge yourself in our famous & mind-numbingly delicious real-fruit smoothies, our fast, fun & friendly staff will be proud to serve you!
