Delicious

We go to common ground periodically and am never disappointed! The cabbage// beef soup has such a robust, rich flavored broth, it is irresistible! Warms me to my bones! The baked haddock sandwich offers a tender flavorful piece of fish. Wonderful! I recommend this spot anytime

This establishment is a total home run!! Immediately upon walking into this Cafe, you will say "where am I?" Relax and keep on going, as you will be in for a treat. The decor is definitely funky, but very comfortable. The food and beverages are excellent. They make a great smoothie. All of their food and drinks are top notch.... More

Found this little place from a FB article. We took a road trip to check it out. Immediately you are hit with, "Whoa! This is going to be different." Picture entering the Keebler Elves' tree or being transported to Hobbiton. No disrespect to the owners but the setting is like a set of a fantasy film. We were unsure if... More

This is one of those special places, where you spend a lot of your time looking around the place, as it's as interesting as their food. Try their fruit smoothies, TDF!! I believe they keep a kosher kitchen.

This place was great fun all the way around. As others have mentioned, you expect to bump into Bilbo Baggins on your way to your table -- it's like a hole in a tree with each table setting tucked away and private. Very inventive. Unlike others, our service was top-notch and we arrived during the busy lunch hour. We were... More

Kind of an odd set up for the juice bar which is awkwardly set in the middle of the cafe seating area. Happy that you can mix/match flavors- we ordered a strawberry/cherry which was very good and a pineapple/mango which was great! From ordering to receiving the drinks it took almost 30 minutes, and we were the only ones there.

An interesting, if rather strange place but the service was exceptionally slow and the food was very average. There are much better places to eat in Hyannis.

Awesome whole natural food and drinks. Check the basket near the register for fresh baked goodies including chocolate chip cookie peanut butter cups and coconut flake balls.. One of the best places to eat indoors on Cape. Literally a big tree house in a forest.

My children love going to the "treehouse" restaurant for lunch! All the food is natural / organic. I love the menu choices - chicken caesar salad is a favorite, although last time I had the fish sandwich and it was INCREDIBLE! Prices are very reasonable for the area, and I work around the corner so we walk over for lunch... More

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 I have missed... In summary:... More
