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 fourth-year anniversary, and we have now given away more than $37,000 to local nonprofit programs that serve children in the local community. 

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.
