You want a cup of really good coffee - you choose the source. You want some espresso or latte, this is the place to go. You want a nice pastry to accompany the coffee drink, choose from a great selection. Once you are done, then take a nice walk around town and window shop, enjoy the scene!

Stop over at Saugatuck on thanksgiving day, was the only cafe open. Had one of the best coffee, the lemon tart is awesome. Very cosy place, friendly staff. Grab a bag of roasted beans, they will grind the beans for you.

There were half a... More

Two shots of espresso in every espresso drink, house roasted dark brews, French press, drip, fresh squeezed OJ smoothies, great pastries plus veggie and egg options. I love this place, the only Michigan coffee place to satisfy my East Coast coffee tastes!!! Love, love, love it.

While in the area, my wife wanted some tea on a very cool Fall day. We found Uncommon Grounds while walking in the area and decided to go in. My wife had a Chai Tea Latte and I had a Hot Chocolate. Nothing great but very good and a nice atmosphere.

We always stop in here whenever we visit. Great coffee blends and even better service. Relax and read a book or just people watch. Try the morning blend.

Quick and friendly service. The scone and muffin are huge and not overly sweet which is great. Husband bought a bag of coffee and is drinking it as I write this review!! Will return when in the area.
