Great way to start the day!

There aren't too many places to go that have great breakfasts and great lunches. Cafe on the common is a very friendly and accommodating restaurant. The prices are extremely reasonable and good portions too. The wait isn't that bad. The tables are always turning over. Enjoy!

Had to wait about 5 minutes for a table but it was well worth it. Friendly waitress who provided fast and efficient service. I had a summer veggie omelet and my husband enjoyed sweet and sour pancakes (cranberries and blueberries). The food was hot when delivered to the table and both meals were delicious! Very clean restaurant and very clean... More

I chose this stop for lunch because it had all positive online reviews and I was not disappointed. I ordered the turkey BLT wrap for lunch. The turkey was thick carved slices and very moist. They serve breakfast all day and the French toast looked delicious. Great stop for breakfast or lunch.

The wait line is out the door on weekends. Either go early and enjoy a delicious, fulfilling breakfast or go later for lunch. This place is very busy and when it's busy, be prepared to wait for a waitress. As much as I enjoy the food here, we had the grandchildren on our last visit and we waited over 45... More

This is a restaurant loved by the locals in Mansfield. It's a pretty big place, and there is always a waiting line. I've only gone for breakfast and have always been satisfied. The food is good and the service is fast. Definitely give it a try.

The breakfast food is above average. I have eaten here a dozen times and it is always good. It's consistantly busy and food is never bad. The service however is always poor. I stopped in there today for a late breakfast around 11 am. Not a busy time for a restaurant. I walked and were looked at by 3 wait... More
