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.

Located across from the South Common in Mansfield. Large choice of breakfast items. High quality, tasty food. Get there early on weekends before the lines get too long.

Cafe on the Common is a great place for a good quality family breakfast. Everything you'd expect from a NE breakfast restaurant.

This place is always hopping. Unfortunately the waitstaff cannot adequately keep up with the many tables that they need to serve. Sometimes I have had to wait 15 minutes before a waitress approached my table. Because the place is so busy, whatever lands on the floor stays on the floor. They really need to clean up their act.

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.

Thank JuneOlympia
