An artisan tea and coffee house for people who know the difference between Aeropress, Batch Brew and V60, and no, they aren’t bands. Friendly service is the whole thing at Common Ground and it is a real home from home for both locals, as well as visitors to Altrincham.
Also serving lattes for lesser mortals, but feel free to have yours with matcha, turmeric or beetroot a la mode. The hot chocolate is very, very special too.
On the side, there is a gorgeous range of cakes including Portuguese pastel de nata, American-style cinnamon knots or, if you prefer your sweet treats to come with a halo, a raw vegan cake.
Brunch and lunch are on the menu if you’re looking for something more substantial. Everything has an attention to detail that takes it above the ordinary. Chia seeds show up in the raspberry jam. Avocado and homemade onion relish elevate a breakfast ciabatta. And there is a daily selection of freshly made salads and specials.
Like all the best cafes, it also serves alcohol, with plenty of unusual liquor options like Black Tomato Gin and Black Cow Vodka.
