Good coffee, slowish service but what other options are there really? Seating inside and outside on nice days. Not sure about the food as I haven't tried it...

Common Grounds is right on the main drag of Middleburg. It seems to be a popular spot to grab a drink and chill. I called ahead to order one of their sandwiches. They have a limited menu of sandwiches and serve their breakfast sandwich all day. I got the egg sandwich with cheddar and bacon on a croissant. It was... More

We visited Common Grounds twice during our stay in Middleburg. Once for coffee and hot chocolate and once for breakfast. We had our Maltese with us on our second visit as this place is quite pet friendly. There were a couple other well-behaved dogs in the place when we were there as well. Overall, a very nice - albeit a... More

My husband and I just wanted a casual coffee shop with good food for breakfast and this was perfect. The staff are friendly and fast. The breakfast sandwiches are yummy!

Great drinks and sandwiches. Cozy chairs to chill in while inside and plenty of outdoor seating. If you are doing take-out or chilling there, you will have a blast!

A rare thing in this tourist town - to find a place with reasonable prices. We enjoyed bagels and coffee and paid about 1/4 what we would have paid at our hotel. Recommend.

Good coffee but ciabatta was warmed in microwave and when it cooled off, it was hard to chew. Took a while to get my order as it was the morning rush. Pleasant atmosphere but won't be ordering a sandwich again.

This is mostly a sandwich shop with attitude. It was little hard to find given the unique layout of Middleburg but well worth the effort. We both had the Rueben(corn beef) and a glass of wine. When I tell you that this is the best Rueben you will ever have you can take that to the bank. Very casual atmosphere,... More
