Comfortable, lots of options. Our server wasn’t super attentive, and my cup had some black specs in it. I’ve loved it in the past, will probably return, but had an off experience. The manager had talked to us a few times and was super friendly...More

Airy open atmosphere and attentive waitstaff. Coffee was outstanding (which to me is crucial!) Everything we ordered was delicious from savory to sweet. Worth a drop in!

We recently came here for Sunday breakfast. The menu is extensive enough with some imaginative offerings. Cappuccino was very good. However, one order was for a toasted bagel (which clearly wasn't fresh), and a side of turkey bacon --- it was one small patty, and...More

I cannot stress enough how delicious their grilled cheese is... With the tomato soup, it's just the best. Even the chips that come with it are amazing. Everything I've had from there is delicious--the coffee, the desserts, and all the lunch/breakfast foods. The atmosphere is...More

We were in the city and decided to find a place for lunch and happened upon Commonwealth on Queen. Although it was really busy, we luckily got a window seat and enjoyed the view from this corner establishment. The interior is sleek and plain, but...More

Max was awesome! Warmly greeted us with a smile and recommendations. The streamlined clean interior was a bit windy with the ceiling fans on a cold December morning. But a pleasant atmosphere pervaded. Staff seemed even joyful for early Saturday. Walls of windows overlooked the...More

Friendly service and nice atmosphere. I'm a city dweller and had never been here before. But went for brunch last Sunday and had a very nice Eggs Benedict. I will walk there for brunch more often.

Hi Rashell - very sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit! Please email me at info@commonwealthonqueen.com for a full refund. We do not have a grill here, as the building does not have full ventilation. However, the eggs are not frozen - they...More

The reviews were good on this place but the reality is the food and menu are lacking in appeal. The prized French toast is nothing more than a cinnamon cover toasted, not so warm, panini pressed piece of bread. The service was good and atmosphere...More
