I had visited Common Grounds on my last visit to Salinas last year, I must have come with friends and family more than ten times. I enjoyed the food and specially the coffee. Service was never great because they didn't have enough staff but they tried their best, plus you have to patient. I just arrived yesterday to Salinas and I took a long walk from my place to Common Grounds happily to enjoy breakfast, it was very busy needless to say. I found a table and placed my order as usual. It has been at least 20 minutes to get my iced cappuccino and 40 to get my food. To me this is ridiculous, perhaps the kitchen can't handle this much demand. I overheard other patrons feeling this way too. I have to say that If it wasn't for Mario who was trying to keep everyone happy I would have walked out. This place is good but they need to get the food and drinks out in a decent amount of time.
