“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Our neighbors told us about Common Place and we thought we had been to all the restaurants in the area. We had a great breakfast, went back the following week for breakfast again and a few days later for lunch. The food was very good. The service was excellent. A nice change to the other breakfast places around. The restaurant was very clean. Everyone was very friendly. We'll go back.

“Simple, delicious, a good value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We enjoy lunching at The Common Place, Jeff & Bernetta (the owners) do a great job. Chris, part of the wait staff team, is attentive and friendly. We love her! If you are skiing at Crotched Mountain, or just in the area and want a good home cooked breakfast or lunch that is simple, consistent and delicious, this is the place in Bennington, NH.

“Unassuming delight!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

In the midst of a fall “leaf viewing” drive in the middle of seemingly nowhere, I hit the trusty TA app on iPhone for “near me” places and discovered Common Place. Run by a husband/wife team (Jeff cooks and Netta serves & manages) it has all the presence and good food you’d expect from a place dependent on satisfying their friends and neighbors. They serve only breakfast & lunch basics but they do it right. Jeff’s chili was outstanding as was the tomato cheddar soup. A Philly cheesesteak sandwich done with large tasty pieces of steak and well (but not over) prepared onions & peppers was a treat. The prices are very reasonable and it’s just a pleasure as you are traveling to feel “at home” at a place that is very far from yours.

“Shockingly Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

Very tiny, had to wait about 10 minutes for a cup of coffee...but waitstaff was very pleasant and food was deceptively good as everything on the menu seemed to scream heart attack on a plate. Was nervous about asking for egg white omlette as there seemed to be limited healthy options but they obliged and it was delicious. Would definitely recommend this place for breakfast.

“A very nice place to stop by”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

The Common Place restaurant is an unpretentious place to grab a decent reasonably priced meal. I have been there for breakfast lunch and dinner in the past few months. The staff is friendly, place of small and the food is satisfying. After day on the slopes, in the shops or just passing through you can't miss.
