This is the second time I've stopped in on my two separate trips to Saugatuck. Both times it's taken forever and the customer service is less than par. They are completely unorganized, it's a filthy mess in there, and the staff is condescending and not helpful. The coffee is good tho!

Actually looked for this place based on TA reviews. As visitors to America we have suffered with the lack of GOOD coffee but then we found Uncommon Grounds. Made a point of going there for breakfast/ coffee every day of our stay. Starbucks shouldn't be mentioned in the same sentence by comparison, very busy & popular place but found service... More

We have come here many times over the past few years. Coffee has always been excellent. Pastries are mostly wonderful. All deserts we have tried have been excellent. Ambiance is great. Lovely to sit outside and very dog friendly. A month ago I started eliminating sugar and wheat from my diet for health reasons so was anxious there would be... More

My husband and I saw this coffee shop on Under the Radar Michigan. While in Saugatuck we found it. This was the best mocha I have ever had. My husband like it so much, he drank on there and got another one to go. Downside was that is was packed and the workers are not very friendly.

What a great place for coffee. Great spot for sweets. It is a gathering place for people as well. Everyone in the village is so friendly

We were excited to check this place out based on all the positive reviews. Unfortunately we were a little let down. My wife had a latte and I had the dark roast pour over. The coffee was very good, but the service was not. We waited 15 minutes plus for my pour over and there was no one in front... More

If it hasn't already, Uncommon Grounds will become part of your Saugatuck vacation ritual. Great coffee roasted on site, and home made baked goods. Plus, it's a charming place to hang out. It's busy there, but it's worth the wait. You know a place is good if the locals go there, and they do!
