Let’s Take 5 🤚🏼 at Common Grounds coffee bar!
While the turnover and “fast food” mentality at a Dunkin Donuts (@dunkin) or a Starbucks (@starbucks) is convenient, It is My belief that nothing compares to the “mom and pop” local cafes….
Let’s weigh in on that shall we? Common Grounds is the quintessential local cafe. Inside, guests will find a wide-open space lined with comfy worn-leather couches, plenty of homemade goodies at the register and a stage welcoming local musicians and artists. It’s like something out of the movies in my opinion. Cinematically and carefully crafted by Hollywood, it’s the local “hole-in-the-wall.” While these shops are fewer than in previous years, I believe that the big wigs will never fully push the locals to extinction. Why? It’s the charm, personal experience and “closer to home” vibe. During my visit to Common Grounds, I plopped myself on a comfy-worn couch and dedicated the time to my writing. I could have sat here all day for multiple reasons but the main reason is the silence of a still and rush-free zone. The conglomerates tend to fail in this category because the hustle and bustle generates their business. It’s just the way it is but an extra 5 minutes wait for a local, cold brew is always worth it to me.
Are You a local coffee shop groupie like I am? I would love to hear Your stories…..
