"Above Ground"

Menu limited...but the waiter was very helpful with the specials for the day. Food was very good, place was clean. A must visit...earthy. You will be impressed with the decor.

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

I LOVE MANGO SMOOTHIE, this is the best natural smoothies around town. I love going there during the summer, right off main street. Grab and Go !!

Very relaxing, great menu and friendly staff. Try the hot cider, its one of my favorites and the homemade soup is just what we need on these cold Cape Cod winter days!

I've eaten here quite a few times and never had a bad meal. Everything is fresh and locally grown. Love the woodwork in the cafe and the juice bar is also very good and healthy

After reading the reviews on here I had to try it. The decor/ambiance/atmosphere all 6 starts. Truly ESPECIALLY if you have kids this place is great. Right on the main street but once you get inside it instantly gives you a great cozy, almost "tree house" feeling... I will say go for this reason alone. Why I am only giving... More

We were a bit early for the ferry, so dropped in to Common Ground for breakfast. It was quaint and very diner-like, with what seemed like only one server. The place is small, and he didn't have any difficulty taking care of the early morning crowd. Food was good, and it was a lovely place for an early meal.

I write a lot of fantasy novels and I was looking for a cafe where I could really sit down and do my work. As soon as I opened the door to Common Ground my jaw dropped. It's like being set into a Faerie Tale world and I was the protagonist. The decor is very reminiscent of a mediaeval tavern... More
