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

We were with a group of friends and needed to stop in the afternoon for a quick snack. Some ordered coffee and others gelato. We were in the gelato crowd and were blessed. My husband loved the blood orange gelato and I had the coffee and lemon. It was so fresh and blissfully delicious. I highly recommend making a stop... More

Common Ground is a cute little coffee shop by the waterfront park (off Bay Street in a great location). The coffee is incredible, the atmosphere is casual and relaxing, and the servers are very friendly as well. By the way, they also have amazing cupcakes too.

Visited recently from 9-10 PM and wanted to read the newspaper. They usually have USA Today, and papers from Charleston and Savannah. Not this time...I guess cleanup starts an hour or two early, and all newspapers were tossed...WHY???

We were very pleased with the coffee. Super excited to know it was from the company off of the Dangerous Grounds show. The coffee was amazing and the pastries were yummy.
