Great selection of bagels and coffee plus a nice assortment of teas for lunch. Would definitely go back. Everything was fresh and the staff was friendly

Warm and welcoming place where people actually converse.... Attentive staff. I am not, however, a fan of the music that seems too loud and a bit too intense for the "chill" vibe.

As a local, I don't get to Uncommon enough! I love the bagel sandwiches and that they offer the scooped out bagel. Always enjoy the coffee and appreciate that they roast in-house (my understanding). It's pretty busy and can be tough to find a seat during peak times, but they have plenty of staff and move quickly- make sure you... More

I stopped by here to get a coffee and ended up getting bagels and sandwiches and muffins and fresh squeezed juice... And i would have gotten more if I stayed longer.. Everything looked and smelled very desirable and the service was top.notch.

The bagels and soup are great! We take the day old bagels home and slice and freeze them. They are great toasted and topped with our favorite spread.

There's always people standing at the door waiting for it to open at 6:30 (7 am on weekends, and people will be waiting!) Superior coffee, including organic and sustainable varieties. Great bakery and sandwiches, cheerful baristas. Trendy millennials and horse trainers in cowboy boots rubs elbows here--something for everyone and the best place in town.

We discovered Uncommon Grounds a few years ago when we visited Saratoga. We had an amazing iced mocha. Returning home from Montreal to New Jersey, my husband and I made it a point to stop in Saratoga just for Uncommon Grounds' iced mocha. It did not disappoint! Look forward to heading up that way again soon.

Came here after dinner and decided I needed a cafe latte and a small dessert. The service was fast and there was lots of seating around with an assortment of characters from town and beyond. Lively crowd, so be prepared if you want a quiet spot which this is not!

been here several times. We usually just grab a cup of coffee to go as we stroll along Broadway. Tasty coffee, many options. It gets very crowded since people like to come and linger at the tables with their free wifi. The line always moves quickly though
