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 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

Under new management, this place is still the best place to sip coffee most any morning, but especially on Sunday while reading the NY Times. Bad news is you have to bring this paper yourself, although they do have local papers. Don't know why they can't pick up a copy when they make their Sunday morning run to Publix or... More

Nice place right off the waterfront park. Stopped in after watching another gorgeous Beaufort sunset. Comfortable seating and plenty of newspapers to read. The staff was friendly and the place was clean. I got a cup of gelato (the small is very small) and it was good, but pricey. I recommend the salted caramel. Next time, I'll probably try the... More

Went in for coffee and dessert about 8:50 PM and again the newspapers were thrown out by employees. Place was crowded and it seems the cleanup starts early here. STOP THROWING THE NEWSPAPERS OUT BEFORE 9!!!

Quaint little coffee shop with terrific brew - and what a lovely view from their front porch! Sit out there and enjoy the water & park. Heavenly!

This is a small cafe situated behind Bay Street on the the park overlooking the water. Roughly ten tables inside and four outside on a small deck. They have a good selection of soft drinks, smoothies, ice cream, sandwiches and cakes. There is a good choice here if you are after a light lunch.

We had been on the road since 0400 arriving in Beaufort around 12:30pm and caffeine wasn't just an option but a necessity...that and some food. We have been to Beaufort before and had never been in Common Ground...we will be back! Inside and outside seating. Quaint building lovingly restored. Just try and resist the pastry case I dare you....homemade on... More
