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.

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
