“Yummm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2009

I'm definitely a fan of Uncommon Grounds! My boyfriend and I visited on a recent trip to Saugatuck and had great coffee. My Toasted Coconut Latte was absolutely delicious, and he enjoyed his Caramel Silk. We sat in two comfy chairs by the bookshelf because the tables were packed -- on a random Monday afternoon in late-October. However, that's even more proof that it's a great place!

“Hard to Compare-Great Coffee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2009

Each year when we visit Saugatuck I enjoy getting up in the morning and taking the short walk from our rental cottage for coffee. Both my wife and myself rate it highly and maybe the best coffee we've ever had. Priced very reasonably unlike some of the big chain coffee houses. Pastries looked very good but we did not sample. You can count on the porch being crowded with coffee drinkers at any time of day. Look forward to next time!

“A busy coffee shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2009

This seemed to be the place to be whether local or tourist when we visited on a Tuesday morning. Some people relax with the WIFI while others are stopping to say hi to their friends. There was an extensive menu of beverages as well as light breakfast options. Definitely seemed to be the place to stop for coffee.
