This independent coffee house is, surprisingly, very needed on busy SE Hawthorne Blvd. Considering that there really aren't any other large, sit-down coffee shops in the area (besides the one inside Powell's Books), Common Grounds is a neighborhood necessity. Lots of sitting/reading space, and a variety of snacks add to its appeal.
Payment Type: Visa, MC
