If you are looking for fresh smoothies with no ice, fresh and delicious sandwiches, good quality coffee and tea - you got to a right place to be. Atmosphere is amazing and people are friendly, nobody was recruiting us anywhere. It will be my regular place to eat in Hyannis.

The restaurant is absolutely magical for children, like being inside the majestic tree-house in Tinkerbell's Pixie Hollow. Attention to details is astounding, something Disney could learn from. The food is also excellent, inexpensive and the service is great. In fact, an excellent place for a young family to enjoy lunch, However, I later learned that this restaurant is owned by the Twelve Tribes religious group in which some consider it a cult. Supposedly, the workers all live together in a commune and donate their time to their church without getting paid to work there. This restaurant, along with other Common Ground Cafe restaurants like it across North America, are supposedly recruiting grounds although no one tried to recruit us. When you Google "Twelve Tribes Common Ground Cafe", there is a lot more behind this story than a beautiful restaurant.

Incredibly soothing, bohemian atmosphere and delicious soups, sandwiches, and salads. Hibiscus cooler is my family's favorite drink ANYWHERE. Haddock chowder is also a must!

Saw all the great reviews so decided to take our 3 children here for breakfast. Got there for 10am sharp but we and others waited until gone 10 minutes past until they opened the door with not so much as an apology (I think there was another entrance at the back but we and others didn't know it). Service was without a smile at any stage but reasonably efficient. Granola was good but that was it for a breakfast offering so our children decided not to eat but go a few doors down for chocolate crepes afterwards which they loved (and which were served with a smile!). The setting is amazing here - so much trouble has clearly gone into it and we appreciated that but I'm afraid wouldn't recommend other than for the definitely great smoothies!

Memorable atmosphere. Picture dining in your favorite fairy tale set in a wooded setting. Try the house iced tea, wish I had ordered the large! Other popular choices at our table were the Greek salad and roast beef sandwich. Enjoy!
