Great stop on a winter day, you can see how packed this place probably is during peak season. Very helpful staff and good drinks. Local musicians playing in the back made it a fun upbeat environment!

I cannot attest to the coffee, but my wife talked me into coming every day of our 4-day visit for their regular 4-blend dark roast! I enjoyed a cup of Nutella Gelato on one vist that was simply delicious. Every item in their counters looked amazing, from Tomato Pie to giant chocolate chip cookies. This will be a regular stomping... More

After visiting the coastal art supply store. We asked where to get good coffee. She recommended common ground by the water. I walked in and loved the decor inside. I was given a free tote bag for shop small Saturday before I even bought my coffee. They had a breakfast biscuit and coffee deal for 5 bucks with tax!!! The... More

Stopped in for dessert and had a difficult time deciding between gelato and all the goodies in the bake case. The gelato was excellent. They also offer a variety of coffees; plain Jane, frozen, flavored, smoothies and hot tea and cocoa. They offer a drink that's made from gelato and expresso that I would have loved to try but didn't... More

We really enjoyed stopping here for a cup of coffee and pastry. Husband said the dark roast was very good. I had a coke. We enjoyed just sitting and looking at the beautiful river park. The Peach Pecan pastry was delicious! I would highly recommend this cafe.

I would like to consider myself a bit of a coffee fanatic. My wife and I enjoy a great cup. Today I had a carmel frappicino (can't remember what they called it). The drink tasted to the same as the substandard contents dunkin donuts uses (Frozen Coffee Base: Water, Frozen Coffee Concentrate). I really didn't taste any coffee. The carmel... More

We use La Colombe Torrefaction for our coffee. If they are substandard then I guess all the coffee critics and connoisseurs are just plain crazy and this guy is smarter then all of them. I would not be so aggressive but the title " substandard coffee " bothers me when I have spent so much time and jumped through so... More

We came in on a Saturday evening and I had a wonderful mocha and enjoyed reading their local papers. The art work around the shop was an added bonus. There was constant traffic in and out of the shop but it never felt distracting. The view from the porch is great, this is a nice spot to stop and enjoy... More
