Have a Sip
There is nothing is like grabbing a cup of coffee on an early brisk morning while leaves are falling. Greensboro offers plenty of coffee shops with unique experiences at each of them. Make your plans to visit one or all of them. Might I suggest listening to NC alternative band Sylvan Esso "Coffee" while grabbing a cup.
Tucked on the corner of Elam and Walker Ave Common Grounds serves beverages that are named after celebrities from Marilyn Monroe to Bill Murray not to mention wine and beer and baked goods sourced locally. The coffee is its own blend they call, Lindley Park Blend you can purchase and use to brew yourself. Common Grounds provides an active calendar of events from Live Music. The space also includes an rotating art gallery and a game room that includes an array of board games and pool. Relax and Grab Drinks at Common Grounds.
