Nice breakfast selection. Not cheap but prices were reasonable. Restaurant was clean. I would definitely go back if I'm in the area.

If you want to enjoy a real great breakfast, this is the place. Tasty, big portion, quik service and most of all, SOOOOOOOOOO welcoming. We felt like if theyhad known us forever. The sliles of the waitresses and the kindness (were very aware of food allergies). As so not expensive. It is a must. Thank you Cafe of The Common.... More

As out of towners and staying at a hotel nearby, we wanted something other than the limited selections at the hotel for breakfast. We then drove to Café on the Common around 10 am on a Sunday and knew we found the right spot because people were already waiting in the lobby for a table. Overlooking the Common with its... More

Have been going here for years and it is one of the best breakfast places in the area. On the weekends you may have to wait but well worth it

I have only been once, but it was busy, the service friendly and capable, the food very good. They even brought out a sample of the home fries, which were excellent. Nothing is a super standout per se, but the pancakes were very good. There is free easy parking down the side of the building. Lots of locals. The extra... More

I've been going to this location, as well as their Walpole location for years. I never have a problem with the food. The service is another thing. Some reviews say there's never enough help. I disagree; there's always plenty of help but it's the quality of help they have. It's all worth the wait, though. Food is always good. Jammed... More
