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. Common Grounds is also a great place to go to see the different... More

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.

I drink one or 2 cups of regular coffee each and every day. To be honest I have never been a fan of these type of places, they are too yuppy for me. Many charging double or even triple what a normal cup should sell for. AS with most things in our country today this appears to be the cool... More

Okay place for coffee. Very pretty view of the harbor and Lake Michigan. I've heard from people that worked there that it isn't very cleanly and they don't take much pride in the quality of the ingredients or machinery that they use.

Thank Matt T
