Pro Tips

Beer and cider on tap. Outlets near the wall/bar seating. There are small (one/two person) tables in the center, with no outlet access.

  • Password is now: sunflower

  • A couple notes: there are a number of places to plug in along the walls – near the lamps – most of the table seating does not have easy access to power. They have a number of couches. Seating for 40ish people. Tables are all 2 tops, but grouped together in rows, so you can expand for a group meeting. There’s 6 spots along the windows that could be used as standing desks (and have barstools.)

    There are a couple of benches out front – and bike parking right out front.

    Common Grounds serves Caffe Vita coffee and a wide variety of Foxfire Teas.

  • They have brewed decaf at all hours! Best coffee prices I’ve seen.

  • Far from most convenient but certainly always one of my favorites.

    The wifi here is marginal. Nice place but not a place to do work requiring connectivity.
