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!

Had some waffles and pastries here. Ordered at counter then never saw anyone until food arrived so was a little confusing how to get water, utensils, etc. We got it now. Neat spot.

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.
