BEST SANDWICH COOL RESTAURANT

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.

I only had smoothies from Common Ground, but ended up stopping two more times for the smoothies. They were the best I've ever had! They were accomodating with my allergies, and kind staff too. A cute place.

It was a hot day and we had just arrived in Hyannis. This was such a lovely find. The waiting staff were charming, the decor totally unique and the food ever so tasty. We were blown away by the uniqueness of this place!

It's known as the hobbit house. Totally unique and quirky on the inside. I liked the décor choices, but the food was just ok. I think they make their own breads (wheat, rye, and one other I've forgotten). No white bread here. I had a grilled cheese. The cheese part was yum, but the bread wasn't great, and seemed to...

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 interesting teas.( For Tea people... 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
