Even though the food and drinks are pretty good, the service is not. I've been to Uncommon Grounds several times because I'm a resident. The customer service is horrible. The staff are quite nasty and rude. I actually witnessed one of them interrogate an older man, who this staff member thought "cut the line". The man was in front of... More

This is one of the places that I always must come too whenever I am in Saratoga Springs. The atmosphere is great, the coffee is wonderful, the bagels are the best ever. Love it!!

From the hot chocolate in the winter to the iced chai in the summer, this place has everything delicious to drink, not just for coffee lovers (although their coffee is delicious as well) they even have chocolate bars made with their coffee. Truly a unique place to relax and enjoy a drink or light meal. I love the broccoli cheese... More

I am in love with their hot chocolate, my boyfriend likes to change it up with different caffeinated drinks but we've never had anything bad from there, the breakfast sandwiches are equally delicious!

I love stopping here in all seasons when visiting Saratoga Spring. A variety of seating options (window bar, outdoors seasonally, tables & chairs, overstuffed chairs, etc. GREAT selection of coffees and teas. (In the cool weather, they have a caramel blend I love, and typically get a bag of beans to go). Nice food options, too. Great cookies, bagels, etc.

Great ambiance, nice seating choices for groups, couples or singles. Outdoor seating in good weather. They roast coffee daily so you can buy a bag of your favorite to take home.

Like this place, conviniently located right on broadway. Excellent bagel sandwiches. Beverage choices are plentiful too. I have been coming here since begore they expanded and I hoped for more seats once they completed their addition BUT it seems there is less places to seat down as there are many more people that occupy their couches and chairs while good...

This is one of my favorite places in Saratoga Springs. The coffee is excellent - they have all kinds of coffee drinks and teas, sandwiches, soup, bagels. There are quite a few big comfy chairs and it's a great place to spend some time with friends, especially on a rainy day. Sometimes there is a long line but it's worth... More
