The food is very good. Generous portions and good prices. The staff is friendly and attentive. I love their Deli Rose sandwich, but all I have had are good. Good soups, and the salmon lunch evenings. We have never been disappointed here.

The meal was fine, service polite. When you are in Warsaw, Mo, food choices are somewhat limited. This is one of the better places. Bad side? Way to much religion.

Stop by and see us at the Common Ground Cafe on the Osage! We feature amazing signature sandwiches, delicious salads, original tea and coffee blends, and most of all, a hospitable and friendly staff. The rustic barnwood decor alone makes this one of the most unique places to visit between Kansas City and Springfield. So, whether you're coming from out of town or you're right around the corner it is well worth the visit. We look forward to seeing you! Additional note: We are not selling and are here to stay!
