It's always worth the weekend wait time to get breakfast here. The service is fast, the food is good and it always arrives hot! Good coffee and great prices for early bird specials.

Stopped in for a quick breakfast with my daughter. The food here is quite good, there isn't a lot you can do to ruin breakfast fare. My biggest complaint is that the sausages look like they came right out of the box of JimmyDean frozen B'fast sausages. Our waitress didn't get our drink order quite right, but as is usually...

Been here 3 times now and always a great meal. Each time we went there was a small wait but not bad. Also went with different people each time and we were never disappointed. The stuffed blueberry french toast was awesome, didn't think I'd finish it when it came...but i managed and I regret nothing! lol

You will enjoy this restaurant. We went for breakfast with our son's family. There was a brief wait for a table but service was timely, efficient and very friendly. You could tell the staff was well trained. The food was very good and the toast excellent.

A friend and I ate here on a recent holiday morning. We arrived around 8:30, just ahead of the big rush and there was plenty of seating. The eggs I ordered were perfectly cooked and the toast had just the right amount of butter. However, the bacon was under cooked and the fruit salad looked and tasted like it came... More

My husband and I were staying in Mansfield, MA 11/10-11/13/16 and checked various sites for recommendations for breakfast. The Cafe On The Common was perfect. We were so pleased that we returned two more times. The pluses: friendly, attentive staff; great selections; generous portions, timely service and reasonable prices. Of particular note: bus staff arrives to clean up immediately after... More

This place is always full of congenial waitstaff and breakfastgoers, with fresh ingredients for omelettes, fruit dishes, waffles, and anything else we've ever tried. The service never disappoints, and prices are quite reasonable. A perennial fav of my whole family.

I was a little nervous when I pulled up and it looked almost empty - not usually a good sign on a Saturday morning for a breakfast place. I am glad we went it anyway - we had a great breakfast. Excellent menu - lots of choices, creative omelets and versions of eggs benedict. Service was great, food was prompt,... More

Cute New England restaurant and a great place for Breakfast. Quality is excellent and there's more than you can eat. I've been there a few times and it's always very busy so the waitstaff is usually overwhelmed. A little patience and you'll be rewarded with a great meal.
