Games and Grounds Coffee House - your local café with a 'side of fun'

Games and Grounds Coffee House is a family owned and operated business that opened its doors to the Comox Valley in the summer of 2011.  We are the first computer and console gaming café on the North Island, and have expanded our repetoire to include tables for tabletop games, too. It is our goal to provide our customers with a safe, inclusive, warm, friendly and relaxing environment where they can enjoy our excellent food and drink as well as access to internet, and all our gaming services. 

There are so many different facets to Games and Grounds, here they are in a nutshell - with a more comprehensive list of each further below.  You can also visit specific pages to get even more information!
