Common Grounds has been slinging coffee in Denver since the early '90s, long before the popularity of super-chains and Frappuccinos. The original location is still going strong in the Highlands, while the downtown spot moved to different digs across the street in 2009. However, the LoDo locations did keep its most notable feature: a beer and wine license. It also kept its fans who appreciate getting consistently good, locally roasted coffee in a warm but sophisticated environment. A popular spot for breakfast and lunch in LoDo, Common Grounds offers a spread of burritos and pastries as well as freshly made salads, sandwiches and soups. At night, regulars come for the wi-fi, comfy chairs and quirks (including an upright piano) that accompany a bar that goes far beyond coffee and tea. Fridays and Saturdays welcome live musicians who kindly entertain for tips.
