During our short, two-day, visit to Beaufort, we stopped here twice, first for afternoon gelato and late at night for desert and coffee. Everything, gelato, desert and coffee were excellent, the staff is friendly, and the location is on the waterfront. We highly recommend it.

Very welcoming with an amazing view. The coffee is stellar as is the food that they offer. newspapers and magazines adorn the inside of this lovely coffee shop. Sitting on the patio looking into the waterfront is breathtaking.

Great coffee, pastries and food particularly the breakfast biscuits all to be enjoyed in a lovely coffee shop set on the spectacular Beaufort River.... BUT there's a price to pay. Service is horribly slow even by the South's laid back atmosphere . To boot the staff person cause there's usually only one manning the coffee bar seem oblivious to it... More

We are at Common Ground at least twice a week. My wife says the coffee is great. I like the iced tea. Their desserts are my downfall. Chocolate cake is really good. Go outside and sit on their porch or in the park for a wonderful view. Everyone is always very nice.

Roast beef and cheddar sandwich was delicious, and large enough for two if you like to share! Daniel, one of the baristas, is delightful!

I have lived in Beaufort almost three years and I've only had dessert and coffee here. But today I tried their lunch and it was AMAZING! The market chicken salad sandwich will definitely be ordered again! They have a very laid back area to catch up with friends, and they are extremely friendly!

My husband and I stopped in for a quick breakfast and coffee. It is a very quaint and clean restaurant. Both our coffee and biscuit sandwiches were delicious. So glad we stopped!
