“Smoothie king!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

This is a small cafe situated behind Bay Street on the the park overlooking the water. Roughly ten tables inside and four outside on a small deck. They have a good selection of soft drinks, smoothies, ice cream, sandwiches and cakes. There is a good choice here if you are after a light lunch.

“Caffeine Pick Me Up”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

We had been on the road since 0400 arriving in Beaufort around 12:30pm and caffeine wasn't just an option but a necessity...that and some food. We have been to Beaufort before and had never been in Common Ground...we will be back! Inside and outside seating. Quaint building lovingly restored. Just try and resist the pastry case I dare you....homemade on site red velvet cake anyone??? We indulged in sweet teas and delish sandwiches that are also made fresh. Huge selection of salads, sandwiches, pastries, teas, coffees and other specialty drinks. Sort of wish i was back there right now :)

“Gelato out of this world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

We were with a group of friends and needed to stop in the afternoon for a quick snack. Some ordered coffee and others gelato. We were in the gelato crowd and were blessed. My husband loved the blood orange gelato and I had the coffee and lemon. It was so fresh and blissfully delicious. I highly recommend making a stop at this very wonderful place.

“Excellent coffee and desserts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Common Ground is a cute little coffee shop by the waterfront park (off Bay Street in a great location). The coffee is incredible, the atmosphere is casual and relaxing, and the servers are very friendly as well. By the way, they also have amazing cupcakes too.

“Awesome coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

We were very pleased with the coffee. Super excited to know it was from the company off of the Dangerous Grounds show. The coffee was amazing and the pastries were yummy.
