The Common Cup

Serving the Student Community

We come together serving you a great coffee and a space to gather. From a hello at the register to enjoying a hand crafted beverage, we hope The Common Cup will feel like a home away from home.

Whether you are stopping in briefly or settling in to study for hours, we're glad you're here.

Who We Are

Are you a parent of a student? Or do you have a friend in need of a pick me up gift? We now allow eGift Cards to be purchased to help you care for your students and friends from afar. This is all done through Square Register and is emailed immediately upon purchase.

Crafting Great Experiences

Our mission is to create an excellent experience for each customer and we believe you deserve our best. While each item we serve has been prepared with care and patience, the ingredients play a major role in the final product.

We source our ingredients from local businesses providing high quality coffee, tea, and milk.
