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!

Hubby has to have good coffee every morning, so we found Uncommon Grounds as soon as we started exploring the area. We got there just after opening the next morning, a Sunday. It was busy and got busier while we sat eating breakfast. Hubby got a cup of coffee and the egg sandwich. He likes bold coffee and the one... More

Who doesn't love coffee? They have cold brewed coffee on Nitro and coffee in glass bottles. Pretty neat!

I live for coffee. Starbucks, Caribou etc. and they've got nothing on Uncommon Grounds. This is really bold, fresh prepared to order and really woth the short wait you'll almost always find in the AM.

After reading all the wonderful reviews I may have had a high standard when walking in for coffee with my husband. We did go at a time with only 2 people ahead of us but it still took about 10 minutes to get our drinks. The coffee was very good I will admit. However after waiting so long my husband's... More

We have been here twice during our vacation in this area. The first time we were here I had oatmeal with dried cherries and robust dark coffee. They were both very good. My girlfriend and an egg sandwich and a vanilla latte. Again, both were good. The next time we had yogurt parfaits and oatmeal with dried cherries, and the... More

A busy coffee house in downtown Saugatuk has a great cup of coffee and a great atmosphere. We thought it was reasonably priced. Staff was helpful and friendly.

While it is advisable to arrive early, even when there is a line, it moves at a consistent pace. This is a must for me every time I visit because of their great breakfast and dog friendly environment.

Great aroma as you walk in the door. We were looking for an iced tea and a cookie. Believe it or not that is tough to find in Saugatuck. Chocolate chip cookies were OK. Plenty of chocolate but too much cinnamon. Sat outside nice atmosphere.
