I am on a special diet and was looking for a healthy place to eat and a place that offered juice & smoothies. Common Ground exceeded my expectations in more ways than one! The people are warm, friendly and kind, The food was wonderful, and I didn't have to worry that I would accidentally get something with pork or seafood... More

Tree house dining that is simple fresh and fruitful. The service and friendliness of the staff is amazing. Home fresh cooking that satisfies the soul. Food like my mother cooked so it brought back memories.

For me and my wife it is our second time in Hyannis. We brought here our daughter to show here how wonderful Cape Cod is. And of course we came to that nice place - Common Ground Cafe ! Their cakes are so delicious ! Drink capuccino at that place - will make you feel like in Italy.

Lunch was perfect. Chai was amazing and sandwich hot and fresh. I would come back and miss Dorchester location.

I work down town and Common Ground is my go-to lunch spot at least 2 days per week. I am NEVER disappointed. Everything is freshly homemade and of excellent quality. The staff is warm and service is always outstanding. Highly recommended for a charming rainy-day lunch indoors in the summer, winter, or anytime you want to feel cozy. Just wonderful!

Had lunch here. Looking for something light and we were not disappointed. Very busy but they found us a table. Large salads, Demi Portion would have been enough. Run by a religious sect "12 tribes".

Came across this place when it was rainy outside and we needed a quick bite. Had good vegetarian options. The inside was unique.

We took coffee to go and a wonderful berry muffin. The seating made my husband think of Middle Earth, but really, it was charming and the people very friendly.
