Wonderful atmosphere whether you sit at a table or people watch on the stools at the front window on Broadway; while you enjoy your favorite coffee (or tea). The bagel sandwiches are delicious. The Wi-Fi allows the local students or business person necessary access to get your work done. The toasted onion bagel BLT is outstanding. Good food and great... More

Right across from The Downtowner Motel is this wonderful coffee heaven. Everybody in town walks Broadway with a cup of Uncommon Grounds.

Tea and coffee plus scones. Everything was yummy and the atmosphere was relaxing and cozy. It's obviously a very popular place and it was busy, but our order was taken in a timely manner and we found a place to sit.

One of my favorite coffee shops. Great coffee and food with a great atmosphere. They are usually very busy but their service is fast.

We go here every time we come back to Saratoga and it's always packed year round. Good coffee, great bagels (Best everything bagel I've ever had). They've managed to preserve the coffee house culture too. My only issue is that it can seem a bit hectic at times. There are always like 15 staff behind the counter and yet it... More

Yes, slow...slow. Maybe I wouldn't be so critical except this place used to be able to turn and burn a long line. I gave them 2 visits in the last 3 months and I'm done unless I'm looking to kill time. They do still have the best bagels and Italian Roast - bar none.

What a crazy and fun place to have your coffee in. The wait staff looks interesting, to say the least. But the bagel choices and coffee selection are wonderful. They make really good soup here and some of the scrumptious desserts are reasonably priced, too. I recommend you stop by around 9am or 2pm, not during breakfast or lunch hours!... More

This local breakfast spot has wonderful bagels, sandwiches and many flavors and styles of coffee and cream cheeses to delight your morning tastebuds. It is also a spot to relax and check your email at a table or sofa or chair and chat with friends. They also have great soup and desserts.

If you drink coffee - you have to stop in for a cup, or two. Visited several times while in Saratoga. A great place for soups and a bagel, also. Comfortable seating with a warm friendly atmosphere.
