Common Ground Coffee House - Featuring Dolphins & Dave Mathews?TasteRestaurants
What does a small waterfront coffee shop in Beaufort, SC and The Dave Mathews Band have in common? We’ll get you there, just keep reading…
In October of 2013, Scottie and Dedra Kaylor purchased Common Ground Coffee House on the waterfront in downtown Beaufort. While Common Ground has been around for several years, the Kaylor’s are new to Beaufort and have put their own stamp on the small established hang out where locals meet for business and visitors stroll in and out all day long to grab a cup of brew and a view.
The new owners have greatly enhanced the variety of offerings with fresh made breakfast sandwiches, quiche, muffins, bagels, scones and cinnamon rolls in the morning. At lunch try one of their grab and go sandwiches and wraps or a fresh made deli sandwich - with local names like The Beaufort, The Fripp, The Rhett and The Port Royal.
If you have a sweet tooth, this is the place to get your fix! You'll find tons of fresh made pastries, pies, cakes, cheesecakes and lots more at the Coffeehouse. On any given day you might find fresh baked Peanut Butter Buckeye cupcakes or a chocolate cake straight from the oven. If you feel like you need to stay on the healthy side, try one of their homemade Fruit Parfaits loaded with blueberries, strawberries, granola and vanilla yogurt, or try one of their 16 flavors of Gelato!
Along with all these goodies they offer a variety of hot coffees, cappuccino, lattes, teas, frozen coffee, smoothies, mocha and so much more. Of course the wifi is free and if you need a place to meet there is ample comfortable room inside. Enjoying an early cup of coffee on the back porch, you might see paddle boarders, yachts, fisherman, and our beloved Beaufort dolphins!
Finally, if you come to Common Ground you may see the future Dave Mathews posing as one of their baristas. We’re not kidding! Scottie and Dedra are from Charlottesville, VA and they own the world famous Millers Downtown. Back in the early 90’s, the Kaylor’s hired a bartender named Dave Mathews. That’s right, Dave of the DMB. Dave worked at Miller’s for four years while he formed his band and even practiced in the bar.
So, if you come to Beaufort and visit Common Ground, you’ll enjoy great coffee and tasty treats. While we can’t guarantee that you will see Dave Mathews, we’re pretty confident you will see dolphins while sitting on their back porch!
