Coffee house

This was a take out order. We got some bagels and a lb of coffee. The coffee was delicious as were the bagels. This not much of a wait. I would recommend this place.

Stopped in w my 2 little boys on a Saturday am. Long line, they worked through it pretty quickly, and the bagels were good. Banana nut bagel was different. Nothing spectacular going on here.

Good coffee, soft big bagels and lots of seating. Long lines and waits go along with this being a popular local coffee shop. The coffee came out right away but we waited awhile for the bagel and egg sandwich (to be fair, this was during racing season at the busiest time in the morning). Outside of the waiting, I wasn't...

It's just an average coffee shop, with literally the BEST location in town. Don't fall for all the hype. Good food that is at a good price, and good coffee. There is a lot of space to sit and hangout but more often than not the place is usually packed. The atmosphere is interesting too. You will usually find your... More

Less a coffee shop more and more coffee factory in one of the old retail store spots on Main St. Hats off to friendly servers who energetically hustle around a hangar-sized space that probably seats 50 or more at comfortable tables and easy chairs. It's pleasant enough but one wonders if Saratoga could support another more intimate cafe. Not that... More

Uncommon Grounds is, at best, decent. While its coffee is strong and fresh -- a great pick-me-up either hot or cold -- Uncommon doesn't have anything else to go with it. None of the food is particularly good. The bagels are dry & chewy, the sandwich ingredients (eggs, sausage, veggies, etc) often taste processed or stale, and the pastries are... More

My husband and I stopped in for a bagel and some coffee & tea. We are very glad that we did. The bagels were delicious! Be sure to go if you are in the area.

The place to meet people or people watch in a friendly atmosphere whether sitting comfortably inside or on there outside, sidewalk patio. Good coffee and a nice assortment of sweet treats. They are also known for there bagels, too! I found the staff attentive and courteous. There are local papers here, too, to catch up on what's happening in the... More

Nice spot to stop and grab quick eats that are fresh. They have a coffee roaster on site and offer several varieties. Fresh teas are also available. I had a delicious iced green citrus mint tea. The pastries looked delicious and our friend enjoyed a fresh bagel with honey walnut cream cheese. Their sandwich menu looked great too. The place... More

Good hot tea selection. Raspberry is my favorite but lately they have been out of it a lot. Love thier bagel sandwiches and deserts. Interesting art on the walls and cozy seating. Suggestion to the management: dining room should be cleaned more often.
