The chocolate chai at Common Grounds is my favorite. This wonderful coffee shop is a great escape from the world. You are given a clipboard and can order your food the way you want it, quickly and easily! Don't miss out on this Kenosha treasure!

Worked up our appetite walking around Kenosha, was pleased to find a place with healthy choices. Marble rye bread obviously fresh, turkey with provolone and a real deli dill pickle was just the ticket. Nice ice tea not over steeped. Lots of other choices, breakfast, lunch, coffees and pastries. Great location with a great view. Well worth another visit.

Coffee & teas we tried were all good (chai, cappuccino, black coffee, & blended frozen mocha). Views were beautiful, can't wait to enjoy their outside patio in the spring and summer. Shop is charming.

Have been here many times! Great coffee and selection of other drinks. They also have a nice little selection of fresh made sandwiches. You make your choices from condiments, ingredients and type of bread and then they prepare a fresh sandwich. In warm weather they have a nice outdoor deck with a view of the harbor. My only complaint is... More

Very sweet coffee shop on Lake Michigan and back room is more quiet and private. Food is good, coffee very good and very friendly service.

I met a couple friends here for lunch & gift exchange. I chose a turkey wrap (you can choose what you want on your sandwich or wrap), chips & latte. My only problem I have with the place is that it is always cold. Older building & next to lake so dress warm. They have soup & muffins/pastries also.

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
