Long-time Denver classic in newish, oddly corporate, location but it works once you're inside. Spacious, usually pretty quiet, with excellent espresso drinks and pastries, friendly service.

Our first morning in Colorado had us on the hunt for coffee. This set a great tone (and taste) for the rest of the trip. Great staff and great coffee - exactly what we were looking for.

Laid back and welcoming on a Sunday morning, we really enjoyed our coffee and breakfast burritos. Best Americano I've ever had anywhere!

We stopped in here for coffee and tea most mornings. Little to no wait, great coffee and tea. Staff was very friendly. Plenty of seating and board games to play if you're so inclined.

As a Denver resident, I come here many times. I love the coffee, which is made from beans that they roast. Lunch and tap beer are also offered, Locally owned and operated for over 20 years, this is this kind of coffee shop that I love. I enjoy relaxing and reading a newspaper. It feels a little funky, as the... More

We walked from The Oxford Hotel to Common Grounds for coffee, every morning of our trip. We were always greeted with a warm smile, fast service, and the last morning...a yummy scone. It's always nice to find a small coffee shop in the heart of a big city. Common Grounds will not disappoint!

There was one girl at the shop that morning and we ordered coffee. She really didn't care that she had a job or that she needed to help customers. . . We'd never been in there and she didn't offer any information about getting coffee. The coffee was adequate but not worth the poor service.

I found the reviews for this cafe at a time when I was traveling, had a TON of work to do, and had a broken battery on my laptop. I had to have an outlet for my laptop to be able to work, and a lot of the coffeehouses were either too crowded and/or had inadequate electrical outlets. If you... More

The barista was incredibly cute despite the fact she made my latte with soy when I wanted milk and until she stepped outside between customers... I also had a yogurt cup with granola and fresh fruit, it was delightful. The outside seating is plentiful and the restaurant is roomy. They apparently have an all day menu that includes sandwiches and... More

The vibe is great. A block off 16th Street Mall so it's not as busy as the big-time chains on the main drag. The coffee was average. The service was great!
