Sipping on an iced latte, sitting harbor side with my best friend, on a beautiful 78 degree May day. You can't ask for anything better than this! Give Common Grounds a try - they have great coffee, friendly, responsive service, and a beautiful setting.

Not a chain, and not fancy. A true, quaint coffee house with comfortable little rooms, a nice deck, beautiful views of the harbor, and delicious treats, sandwiches and coffee. Not like that Starbucks BS!

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.

82nd to 52nd Street. Take 52nd East as far as you can go (Lake Michigan). It is the first building on your left on the East side.
