“Miraculously organic and healthy food in Kauai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This is my third trip to Kauai and the first time I've found a restaurant here that I absolutely love. I'm one of those picky organic/whole foods people and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the menu for Common Ground. I've now eaten there several times and pretty much everything has been outstanding, from smoothies to juices to breakfast burritos to desserts (a special shout out to the chocolate chip cheesecake... yum). The prices are great for this type of food. They only serve breakfast (till 11 on weekdays, 3 on weekends) and lunch so catch them in the early part of the day.

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

The food was good with healthy choices. The seating is outside, which is what I like most about Hawaii. Easy to find with a GPS on the NE part of the island.

“Best lunch ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

There is no better place in Hawaii for lunch. The Common Grounds serves healthy organic food in the best atmosphere. Their staff are friendly and polite in every way and while sometimes the food can be slow to the table, it is always worth the wait. They grow much of what they serve and the freshness is out of this world. You can taste Kauai in every bite. Dishes for meat lovers, fish lovers and vegans all cooked to order.

When the ingredients are sold out they are not able to make certain dishes which is a sign that everything is fresh. Get their early and enjoy being part of Kauai. We love this place.

“Natural Homegrown Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Great food and selection. Mixed service. Our first visit the service was terrible! however the food was good enough for another try. Our second visit 2 days later we had a different server and she had a great personality. The food is grown locally on the old guava farm.

“Good Sunday brunch in a beautiful farm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

We had Acai pancake with Mango on top, the mushroom soup and the fish sandwich for Sunday brunch.

They were all very good. The pancake was very moist so it's a bit unique. It's a fairly big serving too. The service was slow, so we used the time to stroll through the beautiful farm. The live music for Sunday brunch started at about 11am.

If you are the type to get mosquito bites often, then get serious about applying mosquito repellent before you go, otherwise you will get hit hard because the dining area is pretty much outdoor with cover and is right next to the farm so there are mosquitos around. We also saw quite a few mosquitos in the restroom which was part of the same building but you entered from outside.
