You will find me pretty much every day of the week at the UG when I'm in town, I love the place. The soups are dynamite and the hot drinks are great. The wifi is always great and the place has that kinda comfy feeling where you can hang out and relax with a coffee for hours. The regulars are... More

Don't let long lines scare you. Lines move quickly and plenty of good seating. Fresh bagels are great. The "schmear" of cream cheese is plenty whereas the regular amount is grossly excessive (for me). Good coffee. Three bathrooms. Plenty of outlets for laptops.

We always stop by for a cup of coffee and sometimes a bagel sandwich. I call this hit or miss, because sometimes the coffee is just great, and sometimes it is bitter, like the espresso machine needs cleaning or the roast was overdone. The bagel are fantastic though - and you can get a bag of "day old" that taste... More

The best bagels and the best coffee in Saratoga. Lots of room to sit down and enjoy a leisurely breakfast or lunch

Don't get me wrong I love uncommon grounds however I do not like that I can not watch them make my sandwich. Everytime I go to this location they always get the order wrong but have no issues fixing it. I like the size of the layout with a lot of tables, I wish albany had this much seating!

I would like this place more if they were slightly more friendly, the place was kept cleaner and the bagels were better. As it stands, it's always a disappointment. We've visited about 4 times on various college visits to Saratoga Springs. I gotta say, I'm underwhelmed every time.

Stopped in here twice and enjoyed the coffee and food. Line moves quickly and there are many choices for the type of milk to put in your coffee. Comfy atmosphere and you can sit outside and enjoy the sidewalk performers too.

We went there every morning for coffee and breakfast. My husband took his laptop down there to get some work done. Great atmosphere and really good bagels and schmears, especially the olive pimento!

This place is great. Always busy yet always fast and friendly service. Don't be fooled by the line stretching to the door, it moves quick. They have a wide variety of sandwiches, soup, and breakfast sandwiches here. I always get the Everything Bagel for breakfast and it doesn't disappoint. The espresso here is bold with great flavor. Have one person... More

Picked up coffee and bagels for breakfast and some coffee beans to take home. Our server was great, very nice and helpful. Bagels were huge, and they are very generous with their cream cheese! I wish I could have spent more time there and tried more of their food!
