About Us

A Common Mission


At Common Ground, we believe in people, the community, and supporting humanity.  We believe in mindfulness, self-expression, and the possibilities of paying it forward in order to make a difference and positively impact the lives of those around us that walk in our doors, in our local communities, and the world around us.


We provide a third space, that home away from home and work, where anyone and everyone is welcome, and can be themselves, part of an open, diverse, creative and caring local community.  We use sustainable business practices, creating mindful partnerships with socially and environmentally conscious businesses and organizations, and focus on high-quality, made from scratch food and drinks using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.


We get started at 4:00AM every day to make the best muffins, pastries, and coffee in Baltimore (Voted Best Coffee in Baltimore Magazine’s “Best of Baltimore” 2019).  We have an extensive menu that offers something for everyone, including a wide variety of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options.  Our team of bakers and baristas have a passion for what they do and bring an authentic energy to creating fantastic coffee and espresso beverages, sandwiches and salads, and baked goods from scratch.  We deliver a positive customer service experience that we hope will be carried with you throughout the rest of your day; the paying forward of a smile is yet a small thing that may provide a big impact on someone’s day.  Will you join us?
