Common Ground in Hat Yai


Cafe-hoppers will go lengths to get their coffee fix anywhere and anyhow, sometimes in the most unexpected places. Common Ground Hatyai is a small cafe with a unique setting of being inside stacks of shipping containers.

A giant metallic box is probably the last place you’d expect to meet up with friends for coffee and cocktails.

For coffee, they have Gravity Latte (฿90), which is espresso shot topped on cold milk.  Their Espresso On The Rock uses a round frozen cube of espresso so that your espresso does not taste watery if it sits too long.

Finding Common Ground

If you happen to be passing through Hat Yai, give Common Ground a visit for a chill afternoon with delicious sweet treats, savoury meals, and a cuppa coffee. 

Getting to the cafe would take half a day to drive from Bangkok, so it is recommended that you make plans to explore the rest of Hat Yai while you’re there.
