I stopped in here for a quick morning breakfast and cup of caffeine after an early morning job. The place looked homey with an assortment of seating from couches to group tables. They also had outdoor seating that is in the shade for a warm morning. The place was full of locals and most of them... read more

This was the fastest latte I ever had made! It tasted great and the prices for specialty coffee were reasonable, not at all overpriced. There is plenty of room to sit down and the facilities were clean and comfortable. We stopped in daily while we were here, morning and night!

We both had the different breakfast specials. My spouse loved the scrambled dish and I loved the breakfast type of wraps. Try the Rochelle also, esp if you are a vegetarian as it has no meat in it. Food is delicious and prices are very reasonable. Staff is very efficient in getting the food out ASAP. Owners very friendly. Owner... More

Very busy place. Just stopped in for ice cream which was delicious. They have a very cozy atmosphere and I would like to return to try some of the many food options they had.

I started going to Common Grounds for the wifi, but of course I feel I should buy something. So everything I've had has been great. Smoked salmon salad, fish tacos... and good ice cream. I'm not much of a coffee guy, so neutral on that question. But it's a very nice place to relax, eat something good and delete junk... More

Common Grounds offers a pretty good lunch and breakfast selection. Their salmon always makes for a great sandwich! However, they're a coffee shop, and their coffee is mediocre at best. In fact, I'll actually make a second stop somewhere for my drink if I'm grabbing breakfast there. Good place if you need a quick bite, but not so good for... More

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. Not just us but the people in front of and behind us as... More

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.
