Our Atmosphere

You're more than just a dollar sign to us....

In the fast-paced rat-race that surrounds Washington DC, we all need a quiet place to relax. The Common Grounds Cafe of Dale City is here for you!  You'll find an open, airy atmosphere with comfortable seating, relaxing music, TV news, and free wireless internet. 

It's not just about filling your cup; it's about filling your soul....

Here at Common Grounds, we're more than you'd expect.  From time to time we have after hour events in our lobby for music or private meetings.  We are also kid friendly with a bucket of toys offered upon request for those toddlers. 


You never know who you might run into....

Maybe you're sitting down to the business lunch of a lifetime...or maybe you just want someone to talk to.  Common Grounds is one of those rare places where people come together for an hour or so and go away richer than when they came in.  Many a soul has found just what it was looking for behind our open doors.

Whether you're here to start your commute with one of our gourmet coffees or to telecommute from our couch with a smoothie in your hand, we're here to make your day a little brighter.
