Description: Common Grounds is a charming coffee house that sits on the edge of Baylor campus, perfectly off I-35. Whether you're a Baylor student, a Wacoan, a visitor, or a passerby on 35, we invite you to stop by and grab our signature Cowboy Coffee. Come anytime to one of our incredible concerts. Some of our past shows include The Civil Wars, MUTEMATH, Jon Foreman, Needtobreathe, Gungor, Ben Rector, and more! Please park respectfully! We understand that parking at CG can be frustrating. We do have limited parking available behind the shop and all along the shut down Denny's. We ask that you respect the parking restrictions of the businesses around us. If you park at Pizza Hut, La Quinta, or any space where there are signs for another business, you will be at risk to be towed.

My daughter and I visited Common Ground twice on a visit to Baylor. It is seriously the most charming and hip coffee shop we've ever been in! Tons of outdoor and indoor seating make this a great place to relax, people watch, study, etc. Funky decor adds to the fun. The coffee was great and I am picky about my coffee! Definitely stop in if you are anywhere nearby.

Wonderful place to grab a coffee or to eat lunch and get an amazing Italian soda. One of the best atmospheres in Waco.

Free Wii-fi available and fast service when ordering coffee. The coffee shop recieves too much business when comparing to parking. Bands play here regularly.

No trip to Baylor's complete without a Common Grounds visit. Cozy seating out back, limited inside. Courteous staff (students) to help you decipher selections. Eclectic mix of profs, students, Waco residents gather here--just as the name implies!
