Whenever we're in the area we try to eat at least one breakfast at the common ground. They have other meals and if they're as good as the breakfast then go- but the breakfasts are very good. Prices are good. Service is great. And if a train is passing you get a show . Also on some Saturday's there is... More

Me and my family frequently eat common ground. It's in our rotation of places we eat bfast. I'm always satisfied with the food and price. Sometimes the service is a little slow so go with people you like spending time with. Today I had soft shell crab Benedict. It was freakin great!!!!

Ordered café au laits and a slice of chocolate cake to share after a lazy Sunday afternoon strolling through downtown Gretna. Both were good enough for me to want to go back. They have a full menu and a full liquor bar, but I'll recommend it for a great after-dinner dessert place.

I'm a resident of Gretna and have eaten here many times. The food is good. The servers very often are lacking prompt and courteous service. They often seem to wait just too long to see if someone else will provide the service. We tip 15-20% always. Maybe it's something else.

This is everything a local breakfast and lunch place should be. Service is great. Plain simple breakfast joint priced right. Bacon, Eggs and Coffee. Can't go wrong. This ain't a hoyty toyty breakfast place with $13. omlets. This is the GOTO place for locals that want it simple, fast, hot and fairly priced. I eat here once a week and... More

Common Grounds is a great neighborhood restaurant. Every year after the St. Patrick's parade, my family enjoy dinner here. Some of the best Onion Rings around. Good Fried Seafood. It is really a great place for breakfast.

This place is located near the Jefferson Parish Courthouse in Gretna, across the river from New Orleans. It's pretty easy to find. They serve all the meals here, but it really is a breakfast restaurant and that's what they are good at. Service is fast and friendly and the egg dishes are quite good, though I have noticed soggy bacon... More

The food is definitely mediocre. If you live in old gretna it's just convenient. About the only thing you can't screw up is the bacon egg and cheese sandwich. Coffee & on the expressway runs circles around this place, and you get to eat donuts over there while you wait! Don't waste your time here for anything other than the... More
