Seating is in closed-off tables, so you kind of climb in, know what I mean? Great smoothies. We ordered different than we normally would because our baby granddaughter was with us. There's a religious tone to the place, in the literature you see sprinkled about. But they don't shove that down your throat. Service was decent. That's one area where... More

The tree house design was unique. We sat in a booth that is small, but still comfortable. Sandwiches and apple cider were delicious. The service was fast. We got in by chance, and enjoyed our dinner. Paul gave us info about the area and all staff was friendly. Good hidden cafe.

For me and my wife it is our second time in Hyannis. We brought here our daughter to show here how wonderful Cape Cod is. And of course we came to that nice place - Common Ground Cafe ! Their cakes are so delicious ! Drink capuccino at that place - will make you feel like in Italy.

I work down town and Common Ground is my go-to lunch spot at least 2 days per week. I am NEVER disappointed. Everything is freshly homemade and of excellent quality. The staff is warm and service is always outstanding. Highly recommended for a charming rainy-day lunch indoors in the summer, winter, or anytime you want to feel cozy. Just wonderful!
