This place seems to be open 7 days, morning to late evening. We went on a Sunday evening, had good service and equally good food. They seem to have loyal regulars. I think that breakfast might be their strong suit, but don't discount them for lunch or dinner.

The area is so quaint with a small town feel. The staff is friendly and the restaurant is clean. The price is just right too!

If you are looking for a hearty breakfast, this is the place to go in Gretna. We often stop here when going to the farmers market. The menu is as you would expect: eggs several ways, thick cut bacon, sausage, grits, and pancakes. You won't leave hungry.

Went to meet a friend for coffee and breakfast. Friendly staff and locals, lots of tables, popular with locals, comfortable atmosphere. Parking can be tricky but lots of paid street parking in a vibrant part of town.

Whenever we're in the area we try to eat at least one breakfast at the common ground. They have other meals and if they're as good as the breakfast then go- but the breakfasts are very good. Prices are good. Service is great. And if a train is passing you get a show . Also on some Saturday's there is... More

Me and my family frequently eat common ground. It's in our rotation of places we eat bfast. I'm always satisfied with the food and price. Sometimes the service is a little slow so go with people you like spending time with. Today I had soft shell crab Benedict. It was freakin great!!!!

Ordered café au laits and a slice of chocolate cake to share after a lazy Sunday afternoon strolling through downtown Gretna. Both were good enough for me to want to go back. They have a full menu and a full liquor bar, but I'll recommend it for a great after-dinner dessert place.
