This place is awesome and we never leave hungry! It gets very busy and they do their best to move things along. We have always had good service and a good experience. The food is delicious!

Small local cafe nothing fancy. Food is delicious. Omelette was large and done right. Grilled swiss cheese with turkey and honey mustard sauce was amazing! 895 for sandwich and fries. Portion size was right on the money plenty of food without being ridiculous. Server was prompt and efficient but could have been friendlier. On the street parking can be difficult... More

Great breakfast locale. Lots of items to choose from. Generous portions. We had the hash stuffed potato skins & steak & eggs Benedict. Hollandaise was on point. The home fries were crispy & hot. Didn't order sweet items, but they looked excellent as well

Quality food - in abundance! Huge selection, generous portions & great service. I had the Maryland crabcakes, with eggs & Excellent homefries. While my guest had the Everything omelet (which i had to sample) .... it was all delicious! Mimosas were a nice touch & the service was Great. Will definitely return.

I've never had anything here other then their breakfast. The food is plentiful and very tasty. It's a bit more pricey then comparable restaurants, but well worth it for the difference in quality.

The Cafe On the Common is a typical stop for local breakfast fare. I have never had the lunch menu options as I love breakfast. Have had most of the options including french toast, pancakes, english muffin (grilled of course) and omelets. Their mushrooms are fresh including the portabella mushroom omelet. Serving sizes are generous. The servers are great. If... More

Have been here many times, food consistently good and fresh. Good breakfast and lunch menu. Great to meeting friends for coffee while kids are at school or family breakfast. Kids love their waffle.

We were tipped off to this place first by our hotel and then by two different families who remembered it as their "best breakfast ever." It was a great choice. We got there around 10am on a Saturday and were seated and served very quickly. It filled up and there was a bit of a line before we left. The... More

I have been here previously, it was never great... always so-so the first time I got a hollandaise sauce that was a cheddar sauce ... it was bad.. I ordered a corned beef omelet and it was from a can and it was not even cooked, a runny mess of processed food... I would go to the place up the... More
