Dirty. Check out the ceiling above the ceiling fan where you pick up your order - gross. Cob webs need cleaned, sweep much?, mop much? soda machine is sticky. Hate to see the kitchen...
Service is med...iocre at best.
I gave 1 extra star because my drink was good, but then again, how dirty was the stuff used to make it?

Common grounds is the best coffee shop experience I've had by far. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The staff are friendly and helpful, they are always willing to suggest new drinks to try. Each d...ay they have a new food special to try. Besides coffee drinks of any kind, frapps, macchiatos, regular brew, iced, etc; they also have a large menu with breakfast sandwiches, paninis, wraps, flatbreads, bagels, and in house made pastries every day!

Sucks when ur business is rat and roach infested and barely passes health codes and you treat your employees like shit 😞 it also sucks when you can't man up and fire employees yourself. Another thing ...is when you fire them for the same thing every single other employee does and gets away with because you choose favorites 😞 so many illegal and COMPLETELY UNSANITARY things happen there and you talk shit about most of your customers behind their backs and you're just lucky you haven't pissed someone off enough for them to bring your whole FAILING business down because it would be easy. From now on I'm going to Crave Coffee. Because at least their management/ OWNER isn't a joke See More

Needs to be cleaned up BIG TIME. Coffee is good. The employees need to smile a lot more.

I hosted a baby shower for my niece over the Labor Day Weekend. Since I was traveling from out of state, I decided to use a local business to cater the food rather than haul it with me. Finding Comm...on Grounds was the best decision! I ordered an assortment of sandwiches, fruit, and the AMAZING strawberry walnut salad with raspberry vinaigrette. WOW!!!! Every guest commented the food was delicious. From taking my order over the phone to pick up each staff member I encountered was pleasant, informative, and helpful. Thank you so much for taking the stress off of me! See More

The consistency is lacking. Every time I order the same drink and it tastes ridiculously different each time. It's just disappointing to spent that much on coffee when 75% of the time it tastes awful.... 6 years ago I'd have rated common grounds a 5. They deserve the 2 now. I'd rather drive all the way out to the mall for coffee than stop in here, even though it's much closer. See More

When your local coffee shop owner sits next to you at the high school football game and not only knows what you drink, but suggests you try the new Toddy....you try the new Toddy☕Mindy is a great exam...ple of local hometown business owners who support their community See More

Love this place and recommend to everyone! It not only has good food and beverages but it has helped keep many of my friends sober and clean & anytime I'm having a bad day it immediately brightens my ...day keeping me from having wine so for that I'm very thankful!!! :) See More

Had a great lunch here yesterday. Staff were really nice, helpful and patient. Had the 3 cheese pesto and tomato panini with cheese curds and sampled someone else in my group's homemade potato chips -... all very delicious! The featured artwork in the front was beautiful, too. Thank you for a great experience! See More

Good food, fun place to eat, ate in a place in Gainesville FL much like, so it was fun to see this place in our home town, I think they need more help sometimes, orders have not always been right
