Common grounds coffee is my favorite place in the Highlands to stop for a quick cup. They always have good and fresh coffee. The baristas are very nice. Check it out if you have the chance.

I wouldn't even give it one star! I went in there and ALL I got was an attitude that made me turn right back out the door. I was so excited thinking I found an amazing little local coffee shop, a place where I could hold my meetings and do

I really enjoy Common Grounds. I like all the people that work there, I like the decor, I really like the coffee and ice cream and sammichs. But I am SO PISSED right now at the stupid yogurt parfaits! First, the yogurt is delicious...it

This is the sister store to the one located at 32 and Lowell, and is every bit as good! it is cozy, friendly and warm and the staff is friendly, fast and pleasant and the menu is varied. If you don't drink coffee, they also have chai and cider that are out of this world. They have books, comfy chairs, and quiet, or busy spots to watch the world go by. They even have a small meeting room and a book club. It's a great alternative to other chains!

Common Grounds has two locations, and while different, they're both great examples of an urban coffee house. The Highlands location (the original) is still funky and comfortable, with sometimes wacky art and a variety of local musicians, and the Downtown location is convenient, cool, and absolutely non-corporate (hear that, Starbucks?). I've always found the staff friendly at both shops, and they make great coffee. I've never found either place dirty, and if things are a little cluttered, its certainly because of the brisk business that Common Grounds does. You can't go wrong with Common Grounds.

Pros: Funky, unassuming atmosphere, no pressure to be cool and hip

Cons: Highlands location has somewhat limited seating

I guess its easy to see that NOBODY has reviewed this spot for years. The reason, and I'm guessing here, bis we Highlanders are just too polite. "Food Snob", never reviews bad spots. They just dont deserve mention. But, I need to check in here. I've been going to CG's since they opened. YEARS !!! For just the meeting of neighborhood friends. In all those years the owner has never said "hi". Thats one ! Two... the place is dirty ! and 3, the coffee is just plain awful. Enough said. There are now 6 good coffee houses within walking distance and soon another. Who needs it. Get it together CG"s !!!

Pros: Very "in" neighborhood

Cons: service, coffee, parking, friendliness, thats enough

This place has great coffee, pretty good pastries, relaxing atmosphere and computers nestled in the back :) Its the kind of place you could bring a date and sit unnoticed in the back or bring all your friends after happy hour at McCormmicks (next door) and have an eqully good time! They even have a piano :)

My boyfriend and I like to go here to get something yummy to drink and sit around and play games. That's the kind of thing you do at Common Grounds. It's a great hang-out spot where you don't have to worry if you're the prettiest person there or not. Try their hot chocolate!

Pros: Good drinks, Good atmosphere

Common Grounds has a great location, wonderful food with lots of choices (oh, the pies!), and good coffee to boot. Nice, quiet atmosphere during the day; good for us book & coffee lovers. BUT - they don't accept credit/debit cards. I rarely carry cash anymore, so sometimes I have to go somewhere else for my caffeine fix... Otherwise, this is definitely one of my local faves.

Pros: Location, Comfy, Books/computers

Cons: Cash & check only

Common Grounds has consistently put forth great coffee for the common man. They work hard to maintain that funky coffee house atmosphere without raping your wallet for a great cupofjoy/joe...I dont often review but I drive 20 miles to buy their beans which they have only recently begun roasting themselves in small batches and the coffee couldnt be more fresh. I am really pleased with the small batch roast and the flavor consistency and the aroma of the organic sumatra is absolutely perfect.

Common Grounds is all about atmosphere--but not about good tasting coffee. Their espresso is horribly over roasted and bitter--which makes for terrible Americanos, Lattes, et al. Creepy old college professor types scope young women from behind their newspapers, while neighborhood yuppies line up for an average cuppa joe. The coffee jerks behind the counter are generally slow--the male ones, not the female ones. If you want a great cup of coffee with service to match, try Kaladi Bros. coffee near the University of Denver.
