My husband and I were tending to his mom at home who is newly on hospice. It had been a difficult day. We stopped at Groveland Tap in St. Paul for a burger late in the day. I spilled my whole soda inside my purse and all over me and it was quite a mess. The staff came over promptly and helped clean up everything. They even gave me a plastic bag so I put the contents of my purse in it since my purse was soaked. Then when the bill came, they did not charge us anything. Our waitress, Val, insisted on giving us our meal free, which was totally unnecessary but also incredibly kind. It meant so much to us on what was a less than good day. So thank you so much to the staff at Groveland Tap. It is not only the best burger in town, but also the kindest staff.
