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.

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!

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

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!
