Great Sandwiches, too!

Mostly we stop by for coffee, especially in the summer time so we can enjoy the view from the patio. But...We have found that their sandwiches are delicious! Nice and big and fresh...add a bag of chips or a cup of soup and you are set!

Common grounds is a great place for morning hours for breakfast treats and sandwiches. Parking can be tricky in front of the building, so take advantage of the downtown parking and enjoy a walk along the lake. Take a seat on the patio. You'll likely be sharing a table with others, so be friendly! +Nice patio with view +Good Oatmeal... More

Great place for a coffee and a sandwich. A nice place to relax for an hour and look at the harbor area.

Place has a great view, especially from the deck. Unfortunately it's often closed and there are two other levels with nice views of the harbor that are never open to the public any more. I don't understand why the owner would keep these areas closed off from customers. Coffee is good and so are the pastry's. Convenient location, only other... More

I visited Harborside Common Grounds everyday during my trip there even though my hotel was near the interstate. Both the hot and iced lattes were delicious and my kids loved the strawberry smoothies. The price was reasonable and you get a wonderful view of the harbor. Staff was friendly and quick. Hours convenient . . . 7 days a week... More

Great place for a cup of coffee and to spend time with friends catching up. The setting is nice especially the outside deck on a nice morning or afternoon. The food and drinks are good.

Great coffee. Great food. Friendly staff. A good place for either stormy weather or a sunny day—their patio and their indoor seating are both picturesque.

Beautiful setting for a coffee shop on a harbor. Best coffee-drunken uncle is my favorite. Love the wait staff - all so friendly and helpful. Breakfast sandwiches made from scratch - YUM! Fresh homemade baked pies. Congrat on being in business for 13 years.

If weather permits, you can't beat the view from the deck facing the Kenosha harbor and marina. Great coffee and excellent pastries top off a visit.
