Best coffee, fast service and great atmosphere

Place is always packed for a reason, they have great coffee and great tea, their sandwiches are awesome, service is fast and direct, don't expect any smiles really, but that's okay it kinda fits in with the mood of the place. Not too expensive for it being in the heart of Saratoga. Place always... read more

The staff is incredibly friendly and fast. Coffee is hot and delicious; bagels are NYC worthy and my son thinks the fresh lemonade is great.

Many places along Broadway offer outdoor seating, so you should definitely try one of them. Uncommon Grounds has the best coffee in town, hands down. Linger here in the mid morning, and enjoy.

You're being very Starbucks right now, never be Starbucks. Ditch them and come to uncommon grounds. Friendly atmosphere, great coffee and an awesome selection of bagel creations.

The coffee is terrific and service was great. You order at the counter and find a table. Very casual, quality food and drinks.

We were in Saratoga for the weekend and went there for breakfast. Some of the best bagels I have ever had. The bagel sandwich breakfast combinations were quite innovative. The deserts that were displayed looked absolutely scrumptious. And yes. I would go back there for more.

Let me start with the soup. The soup they serve is amazing! It is so flavorful and delicious. Bagels are large and always fresh. There is no table service but that doesn't matter to me but it may to some.

Excellent coffee, snacks, and sandwiches. You can't throw a stick in Saratoga without hitting a coffee shop, and many of them are fine stops, but this one you should not miss. Sitting at a window stool will give you a front-row seat to sidewalk traffic, including the boys who park their Harleys on the street all day and night and... More
