Common Ground

Here’s something we could all use more of these days…coffee! Coffee and Common Ground.  If you’re looking for both, you can find them in Hampden.


In a row house among the cool little shops, restaurants and galleries sits a great coffee spot.  Common Ground Cafe &Coffee is an unassuming spot. The casual atmosphere and friendly servers makes this an ideal place to relax or to get a few pages written. Their iced vanilla latte is delicious and my go-to drink when I visit. They even sell Zeke’s coffee. It’s like heaven!



The cafe is open every day from 7AM until 5PM.  In addition to coffee drinks, they also serve sandwiches, muffins and smoothies. There is seating outside which is a great place to people-watch and decide what shop to visit next.

For more information go to or follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
