On a friend's recommendation, I went to Common Grounds for breakfast. The coffee was great, and I also had a breakfast sandwich. I was very pleased with the food, and the staff was very friendly. A lot of people around in the mornings, very much a welcoming local spot, with a nice view of the harbor.

Great tasting coffee. Had a everything bagel with bacon, egg, and cheese. They give you a paper to fill in for type of cheese, bread, & if veggie is wanted. Bagel wasn't made on premises. Sandwich was made to order. Outside seating, art on walls available to purchase.

I drink one or 2 cups of regular coffee each and every day. To be honest I have never been a fan of these type of places, they are too yuppy for me. Many charging double or even triple what a normal cup should sell for. AS with most things in our country today this appears to be the cool... More

Okay place for coffee. Very pretty view of the harbor and Lake Michigan. I've heard from people that worked there that it isn't very cleanly and they don't take much pride in the quality of the ingredients or machinery that they use.

Wonderful little place full of old chairs that do not match and tables. The place is lined in old coffee pots and the floors tilt. You can sit inside in two different rooms or outside. Read, do computers, greet old friends. All kinds of coffees and snacks. Nestled right on Lake Michigan shore. Wonderful views, watch the fisherman fish or... More

After a brisk walk by the lake, stop in here for a warm drink. I though the spiced chai tea latte was amazing, and I'm looking forward to the next time I get to stop in. Common Grounds is a haven for intellectuals with nicely priced coffees, teas, and various lite food fair. A great place to sit and study,... More
