Serving Dekalb County with Pride

A place where anyone can get inspired. Independent and minority owned


Sorry to all our supporters. Our CG4 project has been suspended due to major structural constraints at the downtown DeKalb location. 

Our team is currently working towards opening
reopening Common Grounds in a smaller "grab and go" location ASAP.
We will continue our vision for a communty art center in the City of DeKalb as soon as an adequate space is determined.

Organic / fair trade 

We strive to support global farmers who produce coffee, tea, chocolate and more.

Community 

Help us create opportunities for youth to do more, be more and give more.

Get inspired

Creative environment with books and local art galore.
Crafted Lattes and Blended Drinks
The coffee Bar

These are the drinks that have made CG a local favorite. Come and try something unique or classic done right. Less sugar? No problem. Non-diary, sugar free or decaf? We got you. Think of the barista as your personal coffee consultant. :)
