Cozy atmosphere

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... read 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.

We were determined to visit this place before the end of our hols as we had seen pictures of it and it looked so different to anywhere else in Hyannis. We had breakfast of coffee and muffins, which were freshly baked and absolutely beautiful. Very unusual inside, a lot of nooks and crannies and wood, very calming with soft music... More

Been going here for years. The booths and tables were masterfully cut and carved, as others have said it truly makes you feel like you are in a Hobbit hole. Come in on a rainy day to warm up with soup or enjoy a smoothie on a hot summer day. The iced mocha is like heaven in a glass. Food... More

I have been here a few times over the years. Never had a bad experience. Breakfast/Lunch and if you want a sandwich supper. The Hot Apple Cider is the best. Smoothies are delicious! The wraps are LARGE. (Could use a little more meat in them for my liking though) Good homemade soups! Fresh foods.Good muffins and cookies. Not a large... More
