I heard they had remodeled the place and upgraded their equipment. The place looks great but the remodel isn’t quite done and turns out they’re under new ownership too, so will definitely have to go back and see how it all comes together. The service was really great and the drinks and cinnamon rolls are are awesome.


Love this little eclectic coffee shop on Fulton–especially that they show such great support for local artists and companies! Literally the cheapest “mom & pop” coffee shop in town too, which is such a nice change from the over-priced big name shops. Cozy atmosphere where you can spend hours reading, playing board games, or just warming up by a window. A must-try for any #SmallBusiness coffee lover. See photo for an avenue to send help to those suffering in Australia currently as well! ❤️

Cute spot, I can vouch for the coffee and muffins! The barista was super friendly and I ended up buying a pair of earrings from a little display next to the register. A great place to read and escape the rain. My first visit was 6/27/21 so I have no context for what the place used to look like but I look forewords to the renovations hopefully making the space feel a bit more homey (I’ve seen that the new management reads these – so a personal note: I would recommend something to make the main room less echo-y, there are many budget friendly hacks that can help!)
Looking forewords to many more visits!

Best coffee in downtown GR. No exceptions. If you need caffeine, go here.

The new remodel totally changes the feel of this place. Missing a lot of the local and home-y feel that this place used to have and make it more unique than all the others. Staff was super nice as always and the coffee was good. Prices went up.

EDIT after some research the new remodel is not totally finished. Hopefully they add in some local flair that keeps it down to earth.

Common Ground is my favorite coffee shop in Grand Rapids, which is convenient because it’s just down the block from my house. I hadn’t been in over a year due to wanting to be a safe as possible against COVID. When I went today I was thoroughly impressed by the safety measures they had in place, and had I known how careful they were I would have gone back sooner! The coffee is delicious, and I just love the atmosphere of the place. Many coffee shops in the area I find to be too pretentious, but I don’t feel Common Ground is that way at all! I will for sure be going back often.

Great coffee. Barista very kind and knowledgeable. Recently updated the interior. Definitely going to be a regular stop. Also, one of Grand Rapids oldest coffee shops.

One of my favorite local coffee shops. Great coffee, very friendly & helpful staff, tasty baked goods, really nice interior and their prices are fantastic.

Definitely worth checking out if you need your caffeine or muffin fix. They also feature local art & music and their featured drinks menu is cool & inventive. I’ve seen drinks inspired by Parks & Rec, Always Sunny in Philadelphia and more.

Nice atmosphere, lots of seating, and delicious coffee. Parking can be a challenge, so get there earlier than the time you’re meeting others.

Common Ground has a very inclusive and laid-back/hipster atmosphere. The barista was very friendly and fast with our lattes, and they were delicious! I enjoyed one of their special lattes available for Women’s history month, the “Ruth Bader Ginsburg”.
