Not to be missed

Perhaps The Place to come back while in Hyannis. Somebody had mentioned the place, the special ambience and the terrific Muffins. All turned to be true. They have only one kind of muffin per day, but sell yesterday's leftovers too. So I sampled two kinds. I wish I could taste the three of the days... read more

Just love the atmosphere! The tree house inside makes you feel like you are "Piglet" from Winnie the Pooh. The food is amazing, the breads taste as if they are all homemade. A wonderful down to earth dinning experience.

This is a unique atmosphere and food was very good and reasonably priced. My husband and I tried it for lunch on a visit to Cape Cod area. We were not disappointed. I had a small Chef salad and cup of soup of the day which was vegetable minestrone. I should have only ordered the salad. It was plenty. I... More

The coolest restaurant on cape cod. Interior is like a giant tree house all handmade out of wood. There a bunch of nooks and crannies where you sit at booths and tables. The food is excellent. The banana, peanut butter and honey sandwich was to die for. Salad was fresh. Carob, peanut butter, banana smoothie was so decadent and rich.... More

A friend suggested that we check out Common Ground Cafe in Hyannis, MA. He described the interior as being inside of a tree, so of course we had to see this for ourselves. We were not disappointed. The inside has natural wood in abundance. There are interesting little nooks and crannies to inspect or explore. The atmosphere is welcoming and... More

Oh my gosh, this place was so cool! The inside woodwork was very unique. Someone mentioned 'the hobbit' and that's what it made me think of. The iced tea was the best I have ever had. We waited very long (busy) for our lunch which was good. The owner came and sat with us and gave us a history as... More

I had no expectations when I walked in, so imagine my surprise upon looking at the decor. It had a treehouse vibe going on. The people who run the place were friendly. My food was decent - above average but not great. I did see other people's food and I'm sure I would have enjoyed it more had I ordered... More

We called into Common Ground and really enjoyed the quirky set up and friendly atmosphere. The inside has been built like the inside of a tree house (my little daughter loved it) and we were greeted by a warm welcome when we arrived. There is a good sandwich and drinks menu including South American Mathe which you dont find too... More

We went here last summer and loved it. My daughter the pickiest eater ever loved it. We are going to Hyannis this weekend and my kids ask how many times can we eat at the tree house restaurant. Loved it. Great prices. Excellent food. Cool eating area.

We stumbled across the Common Ground for a quick lunchtime sandwich. Yes, it does feel like you are entering some film set, but I must say, the food was excellent, with interesting waiting staff.
