Overall, the food is quite good. They have a substantial breakfast menu. The coffee is good. The service is definitely friendly but when it gets crowded it can be a little bit hard for staff to keep on target.

Have gone here quite a few times for breakfast, you can get a good breakfast but there is nothing that stands out. I can make a standard breakfast at home. Service is good, seated pretty quick though there are a lot of cars parked for the Common.

This is the very best breakfast within 10 miles. If you've never had a crab cake eggs benedict, this is the place for it but in truth everything is good.

We've been going to the Cafe' on the Common since it opened and have never been disappointed. They have an extensive breakfast and lunch menu. The staff is friendly, outgoing, and the prices are very reasonable.

It's always worth the weekend wait time to get breakfast here. The service is fast, the food is good and it always arrives hot! Good coffee and great prices for early bird specials.

Stopped in for a quick breakfast with my daughter. The food here is quite good, there isn't a lot you can do to ruin breakfast fare. My biggest complaint is that the sausages look like they came right out of the box of JimmyDean frozen B'fast sausages. Our waitress didn't get our drink order quite right, but as is usually...

Been here 3 times now and always a great meal. Each time we went there was a small wait but not bad. Also went with different people each time and we were never disappointed. The stuffed blueberry french toast was awesome, didn't think I'd finish it when it came...but i managed and I regret nothing! lol

Thank Robert B
