Outshines Starbucks! Unique and delish! Better Latte than never!
Great people watching spot outside in the midst of Market Street. Bikers, dogs, ecclectic folks.

My husband and I were glad to find this non-chain/franchise coffee shop while strolling through Portsmouth. We prefer to patronize local businesses. They have a very spacious interior, great outdoor seating, friendly and helpful staff and just an overall great vibe. They also have a great selection of beverages and snacks. If you're looking for a caffeine fix or just a place to sit and chat, I think you'll be happy visiting Breaking New Grounds.

Breaking New Grounds is a must if your ever come to Portsmouth - great home freshly brewed coffee - all sorts, lots of pastries or try the warm apple cider or a Pumpkin latte. Inside you have local artists on display or sit outside on the small square.
Staff was very helpful and made suggestions (very good) and the overall atmosphere was great.

We were just walking in the area, and the delicious smell of the coffee called us. A delicious capuccino, very nice staff, and a great place to enjoy.

Very good coffee - all kinds. If they don't have it, you don't want it. Better than Double D's any day. Fresh backed goods to really get the caffeine working. Lets be green, bring a travel mug, they are happy to fill
