From Amy S. - Boston MAThe plan was to stop at Dunks for breakfast/filling up bottles with hot water before our day of ice climbing. One of the guys that goes just about every week amended our plan to this place when we decided to go to Rumney Cliffs instead of our intended location (due to it being a touch chilly). As soon as I walked in I knew it was a good choice. Very spacious and welcoming. Wood floors, antiques everywhere and a cute corner with tables and comfy reading chairs that was perfect for getting our gear ready for the day. The owner was talking and joking with us and clearly used to climbing costumers (apparently he has a small climbing store above the restaurant). He joked that we should come back at lunch to warm up as long as we remembered to take off our crampons. He also mentioned that he had rooms available....$25 a night. We all looked at each other and at the same time said, "Did he say $25 or $125...?" He said $25... (not sure how much it would be in the summer)The owner was also the person taking orders and making the food behind the counter and when I looked at the chalk menu and asked, "What is in a grilled breakfast sandwich?" he smiled and said, "anything you want!" and proceeded to rattle off a huge list of items from which I picked egg (fried over hard), sausage, cheese and tomato on an everything bagel - grilled of course. It.was.so.good. We kept saying, "so much better than Dunkin' Donuts (sorry Dunks)!" I meant to eat half and then put on my boots, but I had trouble putting it down. So deliciously toasty and full of flavor! They have a "pay when you are done enjoying your food" policy, but as I'm not used to this and was afraid I would walk out without remembering to pay, I paid as soon as I got my food. Strange to ask someone if I can pay for my food. I just got the grilled breakfast sandwich (although the hot chocolate was very tempting), but they have a bunch of other breakfast options as well as having a lunch menu and a ton of desserts/pastries. If (or when I should say) I go back to Rumney I plan on stopping here again for sure!
“We serve an awesome breakfast, lunch, and dinner with great prices. Lattes, Cappacinos and Chai Tea make for a special treat. Try our hand-crafted Pizza ... you will not be disappointed! We used to be the best kept secret in Rumney Village; come see why that has been changing. We pack ‘em in so don’t wait to have Fruit Filled Crepes with homemade beans; or lunch with made to order Panini sandwiches and Wraps. How about a Grilled Chicken Salad or a Tuna Panini with a choice Tapinade Spread? Our dinners are superb and you can enjoy them with your choice of drink from our bar.We areThe Common Cafe and Tavern”... Brian Paquette
