Common Ground Cafe in Dorchester?

I've had their food several times at events in Harvard Square and other fairs, etc. and I think they're amazing. I'd like to visit their location at The Mills in Dorchester and was wondering if any hounds have been yet?
Their hours seem a little wacky (open until 9pm during the week, closed Saturday, open Sunday until 3).

    Count me in for one who thinks their food is bland and the atmosphere a little too weird.

      I've been there many times. As I described in my review of the place, it's like eating in a place that's a mixture of a ski lodge and a children's fantasy book. Very dark, cozy, and rustic. the food is decent overall, but it's the atmosphere that really does it for me. They also have a little health food store within the place, by the way.

        Wonderful! Thank you so much for the info! I enjoy their food and they make this hibiscus fruit cooler that's really good. I can't wait to try it out!
