About Us

Quality Is the Best Recipe
We Love What We Do

Common Ground is a popular coffee shop on Queen’s University campus, located on the second floor of the Queen’s Centre.

CoGro Staff

We have two locations to better serve you.

Both the main location and The Brew are run by a staff and management team that is comprised entirely of students. This means that from the music to our menu, we know what students want and strive to exceed your expectations! Common Ground, or CoGro as it has been lovingly nicknamed, offers a menu of quality food and drinks at prices reasonable for your student budget. 

Not only is CoGro a delicious option for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, it is a wonderful place to hang out with friends between classes or meet up for study sessions. Common Ground’s atmosphere attracts a great mix of Queen’s students and our smiling staff will keep you coming back for more!
