Such a Cute Place

I love Common Grounds there Raspberry Chai Latte's are the best, and the employees are really nice. It's also right next to the boardwalk by Lake Michigan, so it's a great place to go and then go for a walk on the boardwalk. :)

In summer, sit on the deck, feel the breeze and you look over the lake, drink a cup of coffee or a latte, snack on great pastries or have lunch eating one of the best wraps in town. In winter, enjoy the cozy atmosphere and warm yourself with a hot drink and hot soup. In all seasons, feel welcomed by... More

This is a nice place to have a cup of coffee, enjoy lunch with friends, or study after class. I've learned a lot about Kenosha's history from the regulars. Also a nice place to buy or show artwork. And it's right on the lake! Excellent views if you're lucky enough to get a table.

Heard from a friend that this was a good place to grab a quick lunch and they were correct. I've never had a better cup of Cream of Carrot soup ever. Decided to get 1/2 sandwichon eight grain bread (so delicious) and cup of soup which was more than adequate to fill up a hungry person. Delicious all around and... More

Common grounds is my go to spot for lunch with friends. Great sandwiches and coffee, it's the perfect spot to spend a leisurely hour or more catching up with friends. Cozy indoor rooms for bad weather but if it's nice the sunny deck on the water can't be beat.

My wife and I regularly have to stop at Harborside Common Grounds for coffee, or lunch, everytime we are in Kenosha. A lunch out on the deck is a perfect way for us to reconnect, fix the world issues, or just unwind and enjoy the scenery. The build your own sandwich method is awesome and I have never been disappointed... More

We enjoyed the atmosphere and the coffee. We were disappointed that they don't have liquid Chai for a Chai Tea Latte. They have a good selection of regular teas. We had the Apple Cinnamon Muffin that was good, but found the Cinnamon Scone a bit dry (needs more butter).

I went to there for the first time this month actually, to talk with a friend after hearing so much about it! There raspberry Chai Tea Latte was so good, I couldn't believe it, and its right on the shore of Lake Michigan!

We love to drop in for coffee or a pastry when walking the harbour. Very quaint, very local, very good coffee.

This is a simple coffeehouse with sandwiches so don't expect fancy, but it is comfortable and the food is excellent and fresh. The decor is full of details so spend a little time looking towards the ceiling. Outside seating is great if the weather allows. Today I was there and it was closed due to bees- not a bad problem...
