This used to be a nice small town place to have breakfast or lunch, but the last few visits were terrible. Several persons in my party had breakfast with the homefries, we all thought that the potatoes tasted spoiled and mentioned it to the waitress. She seemed to take this as a personal insult walked away and when she came... More

This restaurant isn't bad, it is the servers I have a problem with. They are rude, awful at serving and what really got me was when I gave the girl a large bill, whereas I didn't have smaller bills. We waited and waited and waited for the change which never came. Finally I told another waitress to send our waitress... More

Have been going here for breakfast for years. The food is always good, the specials are always inventive and delicious, and I am not sure I can ever remember having a bad meal! Gets very busy on weekend mornings for breakfast.

This place is great. I always get the popeye benedict and it is always perfect. All the other food looks great. They move the tables very well. The wait is sometimes long but it is worth it.

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
