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.

Had dinner here -the salmon special. Wow! A huge piece of salmon cooked perfectly, moist and tasty with a fabulous twice cooked potato just like mom used to make. Enjoyed every bite.

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!
