Just had to try the iced cowboy coffee. It was excellent. Everyone was so friendly and polite. Love the decor. If I were a young college student, this is where I would hang out

Best coffee in town. Everytime I visit my daughter at Baylor we all head to Common Grounds after eating or just because we need a great coffee. Don't miss out.

I went here and got a No Bull Iced Coffee with almond milk. The service was quick and the employee was very friendly and helpful. Great customer service and excellent coffee. It was quick, reasonably priced ($5), and I will be going back for more.

Common Grounds is a charming coffee house that sits on the edge of Baylor campus, perfectly off I-35. Whether you're a Baylor student, a Wacoan, a visitor, or a passerby on 35, we invite you to stop by and grab our signature Cowboy Coffee. Come anytime to one of our incredible concerts. Some of our past shows include The Civil Wars, MUTEMATH, Jon Foreman, Needtobreathe, Gungor, Ben Rector, and more! Please park respectfully! We understand that parking at CG can be frustrating. We do have limited parking available behind the shop and all along the shut down Denny's. We ask that you respect the parking restrictions of the businesses around us. If you park at Pizza Hut, La Quinta, or any space where there are signs for another business, you will be at risk to be towed.
