“Awesome food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

We had a lovely breakfast on a Sunday at this place and it was a delight. It's a bit of a walk from the station (only few blocks really) but I'm so happy we chose common ground.
Food is fresh and properly home made, tasty, pure and delicious. Make sure you order the baked beans! Scrambled eggs a bit over cooked for our taste but portions were generous.
Good coffee and great selection of Yerba mate.
The only thing was the girl waiting our table was like a robot. She looked directly through us and never ever smiled. It looked like she wasn't really there. Not rude but definitely not friendly. Staff in generally didn't seem to be welcoming, it looked like dealing with customers was just another job they had to perform.
All and all, best option in katoomba.

“Great lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I recently had lunch here with my son and his family. The service was very caring and thoughtful. We had 2 toddlers and it is a kid-friendly place. They even split an entree for them. The food was wonderful, we had the veggie burger and fisdh burgers. I'd go back again.

“Great atmosphere, food good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed lunch at the common ground. We both ordered the soup which was tasty. It was Sunday and very busy. We were lucky as we got a seat straight away but after we arrived, there was a list of people waiting for a seat. A common ground does not take bookings. If you are taking kids, there are quite a few pokey seats where kids will not be able to have somewhere to walk around, they will be confined to their seats. Also a pram would struggle to reach most of the seating area inside.

“An absolute gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

We had lunch here and loved it! Very fresh food. The barramundi on the burger was on the small side, but the beautiful salad, the freshness of the bread, and the interesting interiors (creating great atmosphere) well and truly made up for it. We will definitely be back!
