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.

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

This little place is great for coffee and pastries for breakfast and sandwiches for lunch. The chicken salad sandwich was excellent (we split the sandwich to save room for dessert). Mmmmm, mmmm, that peanut butter pie was good!! Nice atmosphere, outdoor seating and friendly staff. We stopped by here 3 times during our short stay in Beaufort and were pleased... More

First off, I am not a coffee drinker. I came here to see an acoustic set. Apparently the first in what they are hoping to be an ongoing event. I like it. Nice spot near the water, comfy on the inside, super-friendly staff. I had black coffee, straight. Not bad, again considering I do not do coffee. If you do,... More

Visiting the in-laws and headed down to my favorite coffee shop sitting on the Beaufort river with great views. This place has a great staff and sweets. I can't wait to go to Beaufort to get Common Ground

Friendly service and delicious Iced chai's. This quaint little coffee shop also sells gelato, pastries and quiches. The employee working behind the counter was friendly and very patient with answering all of our questions about the menu. There's seating inside and outside. The outside seating is setup on a little patio area that overlooks the water. It was very peaceful... More

Good place to stop for a coffee and ice tea, maybe a sweet. Good sandwiches. Looks out to the water. Right on Bay Street. Service is good and friendly.

I really, really like this coffee shop! It's in a prime location near the waterfront and great restaurants if you want an after dinner coffee or dessert. The service was amazing - the barista knew her stuff and was able to whip out drinks in no time! The place has such a relaxed feel to it; we loved to sit... More
