First Review by lynnieboodles

Fair - Edit

I ate lunch at Common Ground with colleagues who love the place and frequent it often. I had a similar experience to those shared in the other reviews- there was not much on the menu that could be vegan, the choices were pretty generic (like the hummus with tortilla chis from a bag), and there were not compelling substitutions for veganizing options. I ordered the tofu wrap, subbed a side salad for the chips, and added a side of hummus. It was a ton of food so I took half away. The wrap had no kind of sauce, dressing or moisture, but everything was "fine".

I read the literature at the cafe about the Twelve Tribes of Israel, within which Common Ground belongs, and gathered more information from the internet and community, and that information will influence my choice about future frequenting of Common Ground.

Pros: House smoked tofu and hummus for protein, Popular place, Funky cafe space

Cons: A few generic vegan options

Nice Place - Edit

They must have added more vegan options since the last review. I had the Greek Wrap with Tofu instead of feta and it was delicious. My husband had the Prince Wrap which also had Tofu. They also list a vegan hummus Wrap. They don't have any vegan sandwiches listed, but the menu states that you can substitute Tofu for any meat in their sandwiches. They bake their Tofu with onion, garlic and soy sauce so it is very tasty.

Pros: reasonably priced, friendly staff

super salty tofu wrap - I like salty! - Edit

They have only a few vegan options. Odd for a cafe & juice bar. A PB&J and tofu wrap. The wrap was good, my friend thought the tofu was cheese at first because it was so salty. I liked it. They also have vegan oatmeal raisin cookies, Good, not spectacular. The inside is eclectic with wood seats but not appealing as the are covered with pieces of leather. They have some tables outside but no license to serve outside. In a pinch is grab the tofu wrap to go but I would not go out of my way to eat here.

not So Common Ground - Edit

High hopes for a vegan meal dashed unless you are a) a 5 year old anticipating a delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich, b) your all time favorite salad dressing is oil and vinegar because ALL their dressings have honey, c) are seeking out hummus and chips instead of grabbing some from the 7-11 next door. Why high hopes? They put themselves out there as a whole/wholesome eatery but it's just a beautiful Keebler Elf motif excuse for a common deli. Better odds of finding a vegan meal at a Brazilian Steakhouse ... Or any restaurant with a chef. Shouldn't even be listed in Happy Cow.

Pros: interesting motif, peek and go

Cons: 3 vegan afterthought menu items.

Great place to relax and eat - Edit

The have wifi if you want to eat alone and surf the web. They offer an amazing atmosphere, great food, nice people. Never in a rush, never angry. Lots of veggie options. It's a really nice place.

Pros: food, people, atmosphere

Cons: not open on weekend, needs more tofu dishes, sometimes slow
