So mediocre, that it doesn't deserve a second chance. Boring Popeye eggs Benedict and even more boring see italian sausage and peppers sandwich. Fried potato hash browns were only different from french fries because of shape. Try someplace else.

We visited this cafe mid-week and around 10:00 for breakfast so I'm not sure why it took so long to get our food. I think it was a combination of a slow server and slow kitchen because others who had different server seemed to be getting their food a bit quicker. The portions were generous and food was good.

We came to Mansfield for a chicken wing contest, visiting a friend who lives in Wrentham. We stayed at the Holiday Inn, which we love, but wanted something other than hotel food when we woke the next day. So, off we went a few minutes down the road, and next thing we know, we were in line for brunch. I... More

We make sure to go here at least once a visit. My favorite breakfast is steak tips benedict. One of my favorite restaurants that we have been visiting for at least 10 years. The staff is friendly & a huge menu selection. Love it!

We found this on the Internet by asking about breakfast restaurants in Mansfield, MA. We were there for the Deutshe Bank PGA tournament and first time in the area. The pancakes were as big as the plate and so good! The bacon was NOT floppy and greasy like most restaurants cook it, but just perfect. I highly recommend this establishment... More

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.

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!
