One of my favorite places to get food or drink in Hyannis. I probably visit them once a week as I do work right down the street. The inside reminds me of a very cool treehouse. There are probably 8 or so tables downstairs and more seating upstairs. There can be a bit of a wait at lunchtime, so I... More

I agree with all the good reviews, mentioning the special wooden decor, interestingly designed nooks and crannies where you can sit, and the quality of the food. It's a bit 'alternative' in terms of healthy food and drink, but all delicious and moderately priced - good sized portions. We stumbled into this cafe without seeing any reviews - just freshly...

I love eating here. The food is fresh and the atmosphere is great. The staff are very helpful and go out of there way to make you feel at home. Don't miss upstairs where the smoothies are made. You can sit at their smoothie bar. A great experience. I forgot to mention the decor. You definately have to check this... More

What a wonderful find! Lovely atmosphere, great food ( we had Cowder, which was excellent) very welcoming and efficient and friendly service. Well worth going out of your way to find this little gem.

Somewhat unassuming from the outside, but a hidden gem once you go through the front door. Coffee and muffins were excellent; the service was pleasant; the atmosphere was terrific. A very calm and soothing feel to the place and staff were very accommodating. When one of the bakery items we ordered was not available, an alternate at no charge was... More

We went for lunch and had a very nice meal. We tried the juice and the iced mate. We also had several sandwiches and all were good. My kids loved the table we sat at as they felt like we were sitting in a fairy house.

Simply put, it is a wonderful experience. The food was so good we went two days in a row on a 5 day visit to the Cape. The atmosphere is something everybody needs to experience. If you like cool spots with good food try Common Ground. Super nice staff as well.

This place offers incredible, simple comfort food with loads of healthy options. It's hard to imagine anyone who couldn't find something for themselves here. Amazing fresh everything: sandwiches, soups, salads, fresh smoothies & juices, Yerba mate, teas, coffee, muffins, breads, desserts, etc. We live in a town where the 12 Tribes community runs another cafe, called the mate factor. We... More

If you're thrown off by different, this is not the place for you but I would recommend it to everybody else. Food was excellent and the interior made it fun for the kids.
