What we’re doing to keep you safe…

We’ve installed social distancing signage, floor markings and sneeze guards at the counter. There are several hand sanitising stations on both the ground and first floor and we’ve removed all unnecessary items off the tables. 

We are introducing a new ordering app so that customers will be able to order and pay from the comfort of their table. It’s really simple to use and will minimise the need for people to walk around inside the coffee shop.

We’ve redesigned our menu, introduced a number of new take away friendly dishes and we’ve even installed a new display chiller by our front door, which is fully stocked with grab and go items.

All our team have been trained and are fully up to speed with COVID related health and safety measures and we have provided them with all the relevant PPE.

Through all the measures we’ve taken, we have achieved the AA Covid Confident accreditation.

Common Ground is a speciality coffee shop, independently owned and run by husband and wife, Damian & Julie Besbrode alongside their talented team of baristas, chefs and front of house – creating a vibrant coffee community in the heart of Altrincham.

“We’re passionate about serving the best quality speciality coffee and fresh, seasonal food, celebrating local artisanal producers. Our aim has always been to create a warm, welcoming and relaxed vibe with our friendly team and laid-back playlist. We have loads of seating outside, front and back and inside, across 2 floors, and we’re super dog friendly!

In January this year, we linked up with award winning Dark Woods Coffee to create our own house espresso and we have a daily choice of tasty single origins to try on batch, Aeropress or V60. If coffee isn’t your thing, you can choose from our vast array of speciality teas, curated by Bohea Teas, and our famous hot chocolates from Kokoa Collection. Or if you fancy something a bit stronger, we have a full bar licence and serve excellent cocktails, craft beer, wines and spirits to enjoy in or take away.

Our menu is really varied – we serve up a modern twist on breakfast, brunch, lunch and indulgent treats, with a good choice of vegetarian and vegan dishes. Our avocado toast is legendary and our signature shakshuka is one of our most popular dishes and if you’ve got a sweet tooth, our cake and brownie counter will satisfy any craving! We look forward to welcoming you to Common Ground really soon!”

We look forward to seeing you soon at Common Ground!
