Common Ground Cafe in Courtenay

When you enter into the Common Ground, you might find yourself reliving some ancient memories of an era long gone. Formerly a day care center, it was bought in 2005 with the intent of housing a cafe / bakery. Much restoration took place in that old house before the cafe opened its door in 2010 and today you can still see the original windows and front entrance adorning the cafe. Inside all of the decor is made from recycled materials gathered locally in the Comox Valley. Here you will find beach driftwood, hand-hewn beams, weathered barnwood and shanties built with the care and the love of the One who created us in His image. All of us who work there live together, and together we want to provide you with something that is hardier and harder to find - true food. While not strictly organic we labor to provide you with quality wholesome food at an affordable price, in an atmosphere that is warm, inviting and nourishing. Some of this food is even produced right here on our farm in Merville, BC. Since you might not find what you are accustomed to in any other eating establishment, please feel free to ask any of our staff for more information about our menu or about the life of those who labor to serve you with the fruit of the spirit. Thank you for joining us.
