Due to staffing restraints, we are closing Holy Grounds Cafe & Bookstore for the foreseeable future. Thank you to all those who have supported us these past 70 years. The St. David’s Bookstore started in 1953 and evolved into Holy Grounds, a haven in Downtown Austin. We will miss you!



Holy Grounds is a cafe and gift store located in the heart of downtown Austin. Our full espresso bar serves fair-trade, organic coffee from Texas Coffee Traders. We love being a part of St. David’s Hospitality Ministry and serving our community. We are currently taking the month of July off to renovate our cafe. We will not be open, but we’re excited to see you all in August!

Important Updates:

Holy Grounds will be closed for the foreseeable future.
