Common Grounds Waco

A High-Quality Coffee Experience

Common Grounds has been a Waco tradition for more than 20 years! Since buying CG in 2012, Blake and Kimberly Batson have been committed to serving a unique, communal environment within the context of a high-quality coffee experience. Whether you’re here for a sell-out show, stopping by the drive-thru or to enjoy the tree-canopied backyard, Common Grounds exists to create a space for community and serve coffee from top-notch roasters in the country, including new Pinewood Roasters begun right here in Central Texas. Next door to Common Grounds, Blake and Kimberly are opening Heritage Creamery, a homemade ice cream shop sourcing local, fresh and seasonal ingredients. As native Wacoans, they’re committed to fostering places that represent the spirit of our town and the rich heritage here. Common Grounds is honored to have been voted Best Coffee Shop and Place for Live Music for another year. Thank you Waco for fantastic support for all that has been and all that’s yet to be!
