When in Longville, this is the place to hang out. Coffee, tea, breakfast, lunch, desserts and more. They have live music on the weekends and wonderful "grounds" outside including a little playhouse for the kids, a garden and a walking path. Also, they have wireless access for those of you who can't separate yourself from the digital world. The place is built like a log cabin, except with a modern flair. Art hangs from the walls, murals are painted everywhere (the bathrooms are entertainly decorated). Finally, they have a book exchange and sell arts and crafts from local artists, which are on display. All of these things attracted us when they first came to Longville. Common Grounds is a welcome addition to this small town and I hope they are here to stay.
Just got back from a week at Little Boy Resort. Spent some time at Common Grounds each day, for wi-fi and coffee. Loved the busy, cozy atmosphere, with locals and visitors all feeling at home. Hope the place continues to thrive, because we'll want to hang out there again next year.
I love the building and having this option in Longville, but so far my experience with the food and coffee have only been okay. The smoothies are strange - really more like a slushy than a smoothie. The plain coffee is excellent and the espresso drinks are okay. I hear the food is excellent, but so far I've only had the beverages!
Went there last night for dinner. We have eaten there many times in the past 12 yrs. and the food/service is normally good. As we walked in the door, we immediately noticed how cold it was. Their AC was set at 72, and people all around the restaurant were cold. An elderly woman at a nearby table sent her grandson out to get her a jacket. We asked three different employees, the bar tender, our waitress, and the gal working the pull tab booth. All said the employees were so warm, they needed the AC set low. (The pull tab gal had a hoodie on, zipped up tight.) Some friends were in another part of the restaurant, and said they too were cold, but their waitress refused to do anything. The pizza was good, but their total disregard for customer comfort was disturbing. I will not go back there anytime soon.
Our first time at Anchorage and it was a good Saturday lunch. I had the Gyros flatbread, which was very tasty & my husband had a BBQ chipotle burger. It's a cute place with a cozy feel. Only one waitress and it was packed, so had to wait quite a while for our food. Only downside to our visit. We will be back for their wood fire pizza!
