Sweet & Savory

You can't be sad when you are eating Pie...

It all started over a cup of coffee and a piece of my mom's German Kuchen pie. When great food is involved the conversation can go anywhere and the ideas are endless! You never know what crazy dreams of opening a coffee shop in your hometown might come up and actually come true over a piece of pie!

A mix of sweet and savory can be found on the menu at Common Grounds. The goal for our menu is to provide customers with unique combinations of flavors that bring out the happy in us all. Our made-from-scratch sandwiches, soups, salads, pies, and sweets are guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Breakfast & Lunch

We serve hot breakfast and lunch specials as well as a fresh baked goods - scones, cinnamon rolls, pies, cookies, etc. Our ever changing and evolving menu will give you new choices every week. We source ingredients from local gardens, farmers markets, and proteins from local farms to help support our community of farmers and gardeners.

Each of our local chef's bring their unique specialty of baking and cooking to the table...literally. Our community is full of talented people - those who bake and those who like to eat! We support both here at Common Grounds.

"that has too much cheese on it" said no one. ever. - anonymous

Our dining room is full of spaces for friends to meet and chat. Or if working is what you need, our tables are set up with outlets and USB ports to hook up your computer and work the day away with a endless pot of coffee at your table so that not even your empty cup can distract you from your work. Our community room can be configured however you would like to host meetings, parties, lectures, and workshops.

"We must have pie. Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie."  - David Mamet

We invite you to come and relax and sink into a leather sofa while sipping a latte and enjoying a piece of warm crumb cake over a good book while sitting by the fireplace.
