Adorable surroundings with very cute tables and booths. Servers slightly glum. Great coffee. Definitely go there if you want to soak up organic, beautiful atmosphere with your beverage/dessert. Unique.

We go to common ground periodically and am never disappointed! The cabbage// beef soup has such a robust, rich flavored broth, it is irresistible! Warms me to my bones! The baked haddock sandwich offers a tender flavorful piece of fish. Wonderful! I recommend this spot...More

This establishment is a total home run!! Immediately upon walking into this Cafe, you will say "where am I?" Relax and keep on going, as you will be in for a treat. The decor is definitely funky, but very comfortable. The food and beverages are...More

Found this little place from a FB article. We took a road trip to check it out. Immediately you are hit with, "Whoa! This is going to be different." Picture entering the Keebler Elves' tree or being transported to Hobbiton. No disrespect to the owners...More

This is one of those special places, where you spend a lot of your time looking around the place, as it's as interesting as their food. Try their fruit smoothies, TDF!! I believe they keep a kosher kitchen.

Kind of an odd set up for the juice bar which is awkwardly set in the middle of the cafe seating area. Happy that you can mix/match flavors- we ordered a strawberry/cherry which was very good and a pineapple/mango which was great! From ordering to...More

An interesting, if rather strange place but the service was exceptionally slow and the food was very average. There are much better places to eat in Hyannis.

Awesome whole natural food and drinks. Check the basket near the register for fresh baked goodies including chocolate chip cookie peanut butter cups and coconut flake balls.. One of the best places to eat indoors on Cape. Literally a big tree house in a forest.
