I know it's a coffee shop, but they push a large menu so I hold them to their food being as good as their coffee. I got a small Caesar salad and it was small. For $4.50 I expected more.

Coffee and a bagel The coffee is good and the bagels are fresh. There is a large selection of spreads and bagel sandwiches to choose from, including a lox variety and a vegetarian option with avocado and pesto. Tea, soups, and tempting pastries are also on offer. Grab a seat by the window or outside to enjoy your cuppa and... More

Very crowded, it was hard to find a table. Just an average coffee place with decent but not amazing pastry.

We stopped by Uncommon Grounds after dinner for coffee and dessert on a recent trip to Saratoga Springs. We shared a chocolate mousse cake, which was delicious! There were also many other options to choose from, which all looked great. The coffee was also great. The atmosphere in the shop was nice, with a lot of original art on display.... More

This place puts Starbucks to shame. Great selection of coffee and tea. Best bagels I've ever had in my life hands down. And I'm a nyc boy. The sandwich selection is great and yummy desserts. I always stop in when in Saratoga Springs plenty of seating right downtown perfect spot.

If you like to support independent coffee shops, and like good coffee, Uncommon Grounds is the place to go in Saratoga. I've never eaten there, but I have enjoyed the coffee many times, and really appreciate the many different choices of drinks available. It's also a great place to hang out; there's a hipster intellectual vibe to the place, owing... More
