The atmosphere is very conducive to study/work and I do appreciate the choice between table or comfy chair. Somewhat surprisingly, the place is not constantly packed, although that may change when classes get under way. The staff has always been professional - no problems there. My only complaint, shared with others, is that the fly problem is real. It's really unappetizing to see a fly crawling over the pastry I'm thinking of ordering. --["Users/DataPoint"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Common Groundshttp://daviswiki.org/Common_Grounds2008-08-22 21:29:11TerryComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Common Grounds<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 99: </td> <td> Line 99: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-08-22 22:29:11'' [[nbsp]] You MUST try their KONA MOCHA!!! --["Users/Terry"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Common Groundshttp://daviswiki.org/Common_Grounds2008-08-21 09:41:08JanetComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Common Grounds<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 97: </td> <td> Line 97: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-08-21 10:41:08'' [[nbsp]] The flies are annoying, but the staff and the coffee are great.

I find Mishka's too crowded, but I've always been able to find a seat here. The couches are super comfy, the coffee is delicious (though I'm no expert), and despite what some others have said, the music is not bad at all! As I sit here now, they're playing classical piano music, and when I was studying for finals, it was mid-century jazz. Nothing wrong with that! But yes, there are lots of flies. If you're the type of person that gets that tickle-y feeling when you think about bugs, you might want to sit outside instead (fewer flies, no joke). Otherwise this place is ideal. --["Users/WinButler"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Common Groundshttp://daviswiki.org/Common_Grounds2008-07-11 12:45:53NickSantosComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Common Grounds<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 91: </td> <td> Line 91: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-07-11 13:45:53'' [[nbsp]] I really love this place for studying and doing work. The environment is pleasant - the music is never too loud or obtrusive, the entire staff is really nice and chatty, and the drinks I've had are good (admittedly, mostly just mochas, a few other coffees, and a lot of their teas). The place is comfortable, even if not in the sofas, and has tons of natural light. It also mentions above that the place gets pretty crowded. I have been here at all sorts of times, and even when it has been at its most crowded, I have always been able to get a seat too, so it has been worth coming.
