Review by Olivia Lane on January 16, 2008:
- I like Common Grounds. They host many fun social events in their cafe and they've been very generous with welcoming my craft group (and other local groups) to hold meetings there. The staff is extremely friendly--lots of smiles, conversation, and they remember who you are. The downside is that sometimes service can be a little clumsy and slow--this was especially true when they first opened, but lately things seem to be improving as the young staff members find their rhythm and improve skills. I also wish that there were vegan food items on the menu. Still, I like coming here because they have comfortable couches, good lighting, a nice yard, and a great attitude.
