Very sweet coffee shop on Lake Michigan and back room is more quiet and private. Food is good, coffee very good and very friendly service.

Great place to gather for a peaceful conversation and a cup of tea or coffee. They also have good sandwiches and soup.

I met a couple friends here for lunch & gift exchange. I chose a turkey wrap (you can choose what you want on your sandwich or wrap), chips & latte. My only problem I have with the place is that it is always cold. Older building & next to lake so dress warm. They have soup & muffins/pastries also.

This place is great for coffee and lunch. It overlooks the harbor making it a go-to place that overlooks the lake. The outside patio is great.

A great meet up place for a girl's lunch out. Food was good, just the basics. I filled out my order on a clipboard, then the food was brought out to my table. Had soup and a sandwich, which fueled me up before walking around the harbor. Wait staff was nice enough to replace my soup after a bee landed... More

I have gone to Common Grounds for 11 years. They truly have amazing coffee with many different flavors to choose from, amazing bakery items (including sandwiches) and on the outside deck you can sit and enjoy your drink and/or snack while you look out at the harbor.

On a friend's recommendation, I went to Common Grounds for breakfast. The coffee was great, and I also had a breakfast sandwich. I was very pleased with the food, and the staff was very friendly. A lot of people around in the mornings, very much a welcoming local spot, with a nice view of the harbor.

Great tasting coffee. Had a everything bagel with bacon, egg, and cheese. They give you a paper to fill in for type of cheese, bread, & if veggie is wanted. Bagel wasn't made on premises. Sandwich was made to order. Outside seating, art on walls available to purchase.
