Common Grounds is a well-established coffee/sandwich shop in Spearfish. The decor is casual - well loved tables and chairs, local artwork for sale on the walls, a well used bulletin board sprouting both thank-you notes and upcoming community events. The owner is usually found behind the counter but the staff tends to be long-term and very friendly. Limited menu of sandwiches, soup, salads, pastries. Beverages include the range from house to latte-frappachino-chia-smoothy spectrum. New offerings by season. Good place for a casual lunch or morning coffee whether you're 16 or 60. Look for local musicians on Saturday afternoons...a casual song-circle. Occasional Saturday night event by local performers. Community oriented business.

Common Grounds has fantastic coffee as well as heart. We moved to Spearfish in 2001 and were made immediately at home.

The "New" Common Grounds is the recreation of the place this fine coffeehouse was born.

The coffee is hot, rich and flavorful; there are several selections available every day, as well as the Expressos and specialty coffees teas and drinks.

They also offer a variety of sandwiches, wraps, desserts and pastries. Smoked salmon is a specialty.

Bring your laptop, or a table full of friends, either way you'll be in good company. Common Grounds is one of Spearfish's treasures.
