Common Grounds is a small town coffee shop with character. The atmosphere is friendly and the staff always smiling. My usual is a vanilla latte with a bagel.

The good: Pretty cool place to grab breakfast. The food wasn't bad and I loved the design of the restaurant. The bad: my rating is low because the girl taking orders was ill suited for customer service. She seemed annoyed that she had to take our order.

The owner prepares his own wild caught Alaskan Salmon which is simply delightful in a hot toasted bagel. Great atmosphere for breakfast and friendly staff. Worth stopping by for coffee.

Atmosphere is nice. Panini was tasteless. Coffee was smoking hot. It was good but nothing special. The girl that took our order seemed put out that we interrupted her morning. I won't be back.

Great place for coffee and light bites. We had breakfast there, a breakfast burrito and breakfast quesadilla, plus unlimited coffee for $12. Staff were friendly, service was quick yet there was absolutely no feeling of rushing about. Locals were reading the papers or using the free WiFi and we liked sitting in a quirky cafe drinking great coffee.

Loved the feel of Spearfish and this would definitely become a weekly treat if I lived there. Had a chai tea latte and a breakfast wrap. Both delicious. My only complaint - if I am eating in, why serve me in a disposable cup when you have mugs.

This is a great coffee house where you can get all sorts of beans, cups, shirts, etc. They really know how to brew good coffee and espresso.

A hot morning in South Dakota. A road trip. An oasis of calm and good coffee. A wide range of food. Great atmosphere. Could happily wait for my wife here while she does important things. Thank you.

Locals love to frequent this central downtown coffee shop with excellent coffee choices as well as breakfast and lunch items. Airy and pleasant with outdoor seating available.

Best coffee in town! Pastries good too! It's a good idea to enjoy a different taste of coffee other than Starbucks once in a while. It will give your taste buds some variety--and make you wish you could stop here more often!
