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!

Had lunch here. Looking for something light and we were not disappointed. Very busy but they found us a table. Large salads, Demi Portion would have been enough. Run by a religious sect "12 tribes".

Came across this place when it was rainy outside and we needed a quick bite. Had good vegetarian options. The inside was unique.

We took coffee to go and a wonderful berry muffin. The seating made my husband think of Middle Earth, but really, it was charming and the people very friendly.

The restraunt itself is amazingly beautiful, and the food was great. They are associated with a group called the The Twelve Tribes which is basically a group of Christians who have cut themselves of from the "toxicity" of our modern culture. This group has been accused of being antisemitic, racist, and is listed as a cult in many countries. That... More

Management response:

Hi there Liam. We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit to the Common Ground, and that you enjoyed your Chai. As far as us being antisemitic and racist, all I can say is don't base your understanding of us, or any group of people, based solely on what your read on the internet. "Cult" has become a word...
