Not your ordinary cafe, great if you're into tea (like me)

Took a day trip to Hyannis and consulted TA for a place for lunch. Common Ground as another person put it has a tree house like atmosphere. The menu is small but offers organic sandwiches (on homemade bread), salads, soup of the day, and baked goods, plus smoothies with add ins and a variety of... read more

Common Ground is a unique dining experience. It is a small, almost hidden, restaurant on Main St in Hyannis, MA. The setting is unusual to say the least. Picture yourself eating in the Shire (Lord of the Rings). Rough wooden carved dining alcoves. Food is simple with organic and health driven items but not over-the-top hippie theme like some places.... More

Inside is really amazing, and the price of the food is really low. The foot itself is amazing, it's become of the places I eat at least once a week. Ran but a bunch of really nice ladies and lads, they do a good job. Super clean, very friendly.

This was a great dining experience. It was something different & as previous reviewers have stated it was like dining in a treehouse. Very clean, friendly and reasonably priced. Our food was delicious and they seemed appreciative of our business. I would highly recommend this unique dining experience for the food and ambiance.

This was the 5th restaurant from which I ate since visiting Cape Cod and the first from which I left feel8ng completely satisfied. The "$" rating is completely accurate as a full meal is very economical, especially compared to other local establishments. Although, we had a waitress who was very competent (but maybe a bit nervous), the entire staff wanted... More

Went here to get a quick coffee and had to come back later for the full experience. Atmosphere is so cute and cozy, like having your own little forest nook to sit in. Very simple menu (soups, salads and sandwiches), but you'll leave satisfied and with a bill under $15 most likely. Also a great selection of yerba mate, if... More

Very crunchy owners. It's a hippy religious group. The place is all hand carved wood and everything is made fresh and wholesome. The turkey sandwich is amazing!

well I was exhausted and needed to get in off the sidewalks of Hyannis. I took myself to the Common Ground because its like eating in a tree house and always soothing and restful. I ordered the carob brownie with vanilla icecream. It was more than lushious. It was heavenly and restorative. As I was greeted at the door I... More

This is one of those places where coffee IS just coffee. Not blown away by staff or product. Maybe I just don't get it " common" is the operative word.
