Our daughter lives in Charlotte and we love going to the common market on Monroe Street. We knew the owners were the same for this location. This location is a little more polished and a little less quirky than the Monroe location. We love the food, we love the beer but the service was less than we expected. This is a fairly new location so hopefully service will improve. They are successful.

This place is amazing! I came back two days in a row because of the awesome food and the pleasurable experience I had. I felt welcome when I walked in. All the staff were friendly and the food was amazing! To add, they have an awesome selection of beer downstairs! I highly recommend.

Decent food and space, but need to get their wait times down. Not looking to wait 45 + minutes for sandwiches . There was zero line at checkout counter and space didn’t seem that busy, so wait time was unexpected. Wish the cashier would have at least given us a heads up about wait time before we placed the order.

Diamond in the rough. Get the buddharito (the breakfast menu runs til 2 on Sundays). Bob Ross runs on loop always (downstairs by the taps & canned beer selection) or bring your beer up to the patio. Excellent everything - 5 stars.

thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Went with a party of 8 on a Saturday, we each waited about 10 max 15 mins for our food (cold sandwiches, made to order). Grabbed drinks and sat outside while we waited. All staff insanely friendly, decent parking. Will be back :)

I have been to this shop a couple times, it seems like a cool place. They just opened up recently so I now it will improve as more things are established and vendors open up. I wish it was more of a bodega or convenience store. I think the area would benefit from a small shop to pick up the essentials like milk, bread, butter, etc. It can still have all the other things that make Common Market special, like the bar and other vendors. I just wish that they more affordable. I have know doubt that they will have success with their current business model. I was just hoping for something a little different. Either way l, great place and I wish them well. Definitely worth checking them out, they are unique to the Durham area.

A cool new spot in durham. The breakfast items were basic, bland and greasy, but not inedible. There are lots of cool gifts and silly things to buy, as well as good beer and wine to try. The atmosphere was hectic, with kids running around like crazy. This definitely isn’t a quiet place to grab a quick bite.

What a great addition to the neighborhood! We’ve already gotten food here 3-4 times in the 1.5 weeks it’s been open. As anywhere in food loving Durham, be prepared for a wait on the weekends, but during the week day it’s a brilliant place to meet a friend for lunch. Really appreciate the vegan options! Also you can’t beat having a local female owned coffee shop and to go icecream shop. We hope to become regulars.

Common Market is new, and I tried it this morning. I love the atmosphere. Great place to have coffee and a breakfast sandwich. Nice music selection, and NOT too loud. Many restaurants these days play their music too loud. It has a nice and relaxed feel. My sandwich was good. I received excellent service. I’ll definitely go again!

I was expecting an outstanding experience when I chose to try this restaurant. The hype around this new location was intriguing. The wait time for a sandwich exceeded 20, and when I tasted it, the flavor was disappointing. The menu board describes what I thought would be great food however, it failed to meet my expectations. The atmosphere and comfort was acceptable considering it is near east campus.

I really loved Common Market in Plaza Midwood, Charlotte -- so I'm really excited to have them a bit closer! The food was fantastic. Really love the vegan buffalo wrap -- the right amount of spice and savory indulgence without being too much/heavy. Great selection of wine, beer, snacks, treats, you name it. I enjoy the space, lots of nooks to tuck away in and lots of spaces to explore. Will be excited to see it continue to evolve as more people are able to join!
