In every city, no matter how big or small, I always seem to find at least one spot that manages to surprise in multiple ways. For Fayetteville I hadn’t a clue what that place might be until I accidentally stumbled into the Common Grounds for breakfast one morning. Located minutes away from the University of Arkansas, in historic Dikson Fayetteville, the strip where the Common Grounds sits tucked away, is surrounded by many local flavors. And if getting your day started with a fresh cup of gourmet espresso is priority you’ll have tons to choose from at the Common Grounds. Not being a big coffee drinker myself, I suggest you check out the website for an idea of what roasts, blends, beans and aromas you’re destined to discover by swinging through.
I went big, all out and ordered the Meaty Belgian, a Belgian waffle sandwich layered with two eggs, American cheese and a sausage pattie. Accompanying my delish breakfast sandwich was a small cup of fresh fruit and to top it off I had an ice-cold smoothie. Certainly one of the most filling meals I’ve ever started my day off with and not too bad on the pockets I’d surely go back to fuel up again if in Fayetteville. Superb service, warm smiles and a very nice atmosphere makes the Common Grounds highly inviting. Stumble in for yourself.
The Common Grounds is located at 412 West Dickson Street, Fayetteville, AR 72701. Ph. 479.442.3515.
