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

When I used to work in Kenosha I would come here for lunch. It was always nice to sit and watch the lake while enjoying a light lunch. Their menu is pretty basic, but every sandwich I've had has been tasty. The decor and tables inside are very cute and antiquey - a nice change of pace from most restaurants... More

I love Common Grounds there Raspberry Chai Latte's are the best, and the employees are really nice. It's also right next to the boardwalk by Lake Michigan, so it's a great place to go and then go for a walk on the boardwalk. :)

In summer, sit on the deck, feel the breeze and you look over the lake, drink a cup of coffee or a latte, snack on great pastries or have lunch eating one of the best wraps in town. In winter, enjoy the cozy atmosphere and warm yourself with a hot drink and hot soup. In all seasons, feel welcomed by... More
