Excellent craft beers on rotation.
The menu was redone by a new chef.
I enjoyed the pulled pork poutine, lots of flavour, perfect fries.
The service was great and responsive.
It took a bit long to get the food at lunch time.

The menu at the Common has something for everyone; vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, plus many meat-based options. I am never disappointed with my choice. The choice of ingredients always results in the most amazing blend of flavors. They do change the menu on a regular basis which I love. But once you find a favorite dish, you have to make sure to enjoy it before the menu changes.

The drink menu is also great with the classics cocktails and some unique offerings. And a fantastic selection of local beer.

The staff is amazing. Always very inviting and friendly. The combination of the menu and staff make this my go-to place.
