For years, the space on the corner of Lower Cairns Terrace and Hayward Street was inhabited by a Scottish-themed shop that often looked rather empty. Over the last few months, it has become much, much busier — and it's a place where you can have a coffee, grab a bite to eat, and easily while away the early part of your day.
Meet Ground Collective's The Common Cafe, with emphasis on the shared nature of the hangout. That's not just because you'll spy plenty of people here. In fact, it's a wholefood cafe, a yoga and pilates studio and a day spa all in one.
Those after the edible side of things won't be disappointed, thanks to a natural, healthy selection serving all-day fare, Bellisimo coffee blends, and Storm and India tea varieties. It's a come for a cuppa, stay for a snack or more kind of place, with the likes of bush tucker bircher with coconut yoghurt and fresh berries, signature toasties and Spanish burgers with bacon certain to tempt your tastebuds.
