“Great food and friendly service”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

When traveling to or through a smaller community, it's harder to find unique places to eat that provide fresh food and unique approaches. Common Grounds does just that. The salad special on this day was outstanding and satisfying. The service was genuinely friendly and helpful. I am sure to return on future business trips.

“Nice coffee house”
Reviewed 27 June 2013 via mobile

This is a nice coffee house with pretty good food, drinks, sweets. I have killed many an hour here, and I have always found them to be gracious and accommodating.

“Nice place to stop”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

A nice place to stop for a drink or snack and to stop and talk with friends. Their drinks, desserts, & food are good but their lunch items are overpriced and you don't much. When my husband and I eat their for lunch, it seems like the bill is at least $20 and that's without buying a coffee drink.
