The breakfast selection here is good. My buddy ordered a chili omelette and was not impressed with the quality of the chili. Overall this place is better for breakfast than any of the chains like IHOP or Denny's. The portions are big.

We had homemade soup and onion rings. The onion rings are the best I have ever had and my husband loved the soup. Very welcoming.

Beautiful little eatery featuring a big varied menu augmented with daily specials. My breakfast this morning was prepared just right and my cup stayed full. Good service and prices.

We live in Antrim, so it's nearby and convenient for breakfast. Average fare, friendly staff and mostly patronized by locals. If you in the area give it a try, it's a located in a typical old New England village.

I was there with 6 other people, between us we tried a little of everything. The food was delicious. It was fresh and well prepared - no greasy gross diner food here! The wait staff is incredibly friendly and always ready to fill your coffee mug.

We came for breakfast and weren't disappointed. Everything is fresh including the eggs. The eggs come from their chickens! We've been buying their eggs and decided to try their cooking. Our choice was the fresh vegetable omelet and eggs benedict. Very friendly and personal service for their staff.

The Common Place is a small town eatery with delicious food. They are only open for breakfast and lunch, but they have a pretty good selection to choose from. You shouldn't walk away hungry! At least we didn't!
