I enjoy visiting common ground on Sunday morning with my parents. The coffee is great and they have a good selection of breakfast muffins, pastries and quiche. The staff is friendly but they have a tough time keeping it together when it's busy. Management could do a better job assigning the staff to specific positions (coffee, food, register, etc) during...

A must if you are in the area ...I got the frozen coffee ( delicious) and the food is amazing a bit expensive 11.23 for frozen coffee and a slice of heaven but Its worth it ... We will be stopping in again before my trip is over

We stopped here twice; we don't always like to eat full meals and this place had great quiche and pastries. A large selection of baked treats. Good place to get iced tea and then go swing on the park swings.

From coffees to gelatto you will enjoy this local coffee house with comfortable seating inside or on the lovely porch facing the waterfront park & the Beaufort river. Tasty baked goods for a morning, mid-day or late evening pick me up.

We visited this coffeehouse/cafe' twice on our 1 night trip to Beaufort because we enjoyed it so much! Not only do they have coffee, teas, bakery treats and sandwiches they also have great gelato. The atmosphere is cozy and the view of the bay is peaceful. This is a great place to hang out and relax while in Beaufort.

Bear-friendly coffee coffee shops are few and far between, but Common ground is good for bears who are just waking from hibernation because the delicious smell extends outdoors, luring you to the counter and somewhat arousing you from your slumber even before your first sip. Delicious fresh coffee awaits you along with a surprisingly large selection of pies and other... More

Love the coffee and treats!!!! The staff is always very pleasant as well!! Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy it on the swings over looking the water. One of my favorite things to do!

I highly recommend the turtle coffee drink, OMG it is soooo good. I had it the first day we were in Beaufort served hot. The second day I went back for another & found out I could get it frozen, which was even better. I usually get a caramel frapp at Starbucks which is it similar but the turtle is... More
