These folks were unbelievably nice and accommodating. We needed to pick up some breakfast for the next morning because we were leaving really early. Also had some great ice cream.

Loved the ambiance of this place. Lots of comfy leather chairs and couches. Very inviting and right on the water. Their in-house chai latte was delicious!

When I visit, I don't always have breakfast downtown, but I make a special trip to Common Ground sometimes for the Turtle Coffee...it's delish iced! It has hints of caramel and chocolate and it is really delicious served cold. They often run out of the big chocolate chip cookies, but if they have them, pick up one of those, too.... More

Very under-staffed on the day after Xmas. One woman was manning the cash, making all of the drinks, and heating the food. The slice of quiche was very small and over-priced. The tomato pie was microwaved, not heated in an oven, and consequently was soggy. The roast beef panini contained one slice of roast beef.

We stopped in twice during our visit to Beaufort. The coffee and hot chocolate were excellent. Pastries good also. The best stop was for gelato later in the day. Chocolate gelato was top notch. Funky atmosphere with a relaxing setting.

Went here after church on Lady's island. Heard about the bisquets and eggs, but they ran out of eggs! We had a scone, and quiche and they we just ok. Overall, disappointed, especially when I swallowed a mouthful of grounds in the coffee.

We enjoyed coffee and pastries two mornings. The coffee was great and the selection of pastries was very large. We also stopped one evening for gelato and it was also good.

After having dinner at a less than expected restaurant we needed something else so we came across Common Ground. My wife and I both had ice cream. Delicious. Choice of many flavors

I am a latte guy. These baristas know how to make me happy - they are very consistent. And the food is delicious.
