Common Grounds Cafe SignThe Common Grounds Café is a not-for-profit, caring community café that is a mission of the Church of the Covenant. Any surplus goes to support local children’s programs, such as Camp Kum-Ba-Yah.

We strive to be a safe space for people of all ages and from all walks of life to come together for reflection, conversation, inspiration, and community building. And free Wi-Fi is always available.

Our café has passed its second-year anniversary, and we have now given away $11,300 to local nonprofit programs that serve children in the local community. Our most recent grant went to Wheels on the James, an organization that provides bikes and trikes to children who have disabilities.

The all-volunteer cooking and serving staff offers mostly local, mostly organic food and drink.

The Every Friday menu includes: regular and decaf coffee, a variety of teas, apple and orange juice, oatmeal made with steel-cut oats and flavored with almonds and tart cherries, yogurt, fruit and granola parfaits, along with a selection of scones and muffins from Montana Plains Bakery.

A different In-house special is offered each week and includes dishes such as: many grains/no wheat blueberry pancakes, quiches, apple coffee cake, cheesy corn grits, egg casseroles, frittatas, and Italian-style poached eggs.

Donations for food and service are gratefully accepted.
