An independent coffee shop and bar with private meeting space available to hire, we’re a vibrant community in the heart of Altrincham. Celebrating local artisanal producers every day, we offer everything from casual daytime dining and speciality coffee, to cocktails and craft beer. Experience modern café culture, at Common Ground Grand Café.
Common Ground is a speciality coffee shop, independently owned and run by husband and wife, Damian & Julie Besbrode alongside their talented team of baristas, chefs and front of house – creating a vibrant coffee community in the heart of Altrincham.
“We’re passionate about serving the best quality speciality coffee and fresh, seasonal food, celebrating local artisanal producers. Our aim has always been to create a warm, welcoming and relaxed vibe with our friendly team and laid-back playlist. We have loads of seating outside, front and back and inside, across 2 floors, and we’re super dog friendly!
In January this year, we linked up with award winning Dark Woods Coffee to create our own house espresso and we have a daily choice of tasty single origins to try on batch, Aeropress or V60. If coffee isn’t your thing, you can choose from our vast array of speciality teas, curated by Bohea Teas, and our famous hot chocolates from Kokoa Collection. Or if you fancy something a bit stronger, we have a full bar licence and serve excellent cocktails, craft beer, wines and spirits to enjoy in or take away.
Our menu is really varied – we serve up a modern twist on breakfast, brunch, lunch and indulgent treats, with a good choice of vegetarian and vegan dishes. Our avocado toast is legendary and our signature shakshuka is one of our most popular dishes and if you’ve got a sweet tooth, our cake and brownie counter will satisfy any craving! We look forward to welcoming you to Common Ground really soon!”
