Had a delicious latte and gluten free cookie on the heated outdoor patio. Never disappoints! There is no indoor seating right now due to their size and COVID restrictions, so be prepared for that.

We stopped here for some breakfast and hot drinks. The Chai lattes were pretty good, sweet and milky (could have been spicier). We had a chocolate croissant, which was good but not very crispy, and the coffee cake (this was a hit, creamy and filled...with chunky apples). Would definitely stop again!More

We stopped here for coffee and pastries. Friendly staff, and service was quick. We both enjoyed the lattes and croissants. Seemed like a very dog friendly place.

Long wait but very good coffee - we didn’t try the food however. Short staffed but trying hard during this time.

We tried to find a place for breakfast on Sunday morning and Uncommon Coffee Roasters was the only place we could find that was open. They only had breakfast sandwiches and we ate out at the curb. We had two different sandwiches and neither one...of us really cared for them. I would say if you are a coffee drinker it might be a good place to try but I would not recommend the breakfast sandwiches.More

I went into Saugatuck for a quick takeout breakfast before traveling home on a Monday morning and almost everything was closed. This place was open, but very busy. I got coffee and a chocolate croissant very quickly but it took 10-15 minutes to get my...toasted bagel and cream cheese. The staff was nice and friendly and the food and coffee was very good.More

The best coffee around. It is surprising to find a place where you can have a good espresso in such a tiny village. The quality of their coffee is outstanding. I never miss it whenever I visit the town.

Had coffee here each morning - a short walk from our hotel. Nice that Saugatuck has supporting independent small business (instead of large coffee chains). Good quality pastries/bakery items and hot beverages. Friendly service.

Our trips to Saugatuck wouldn’t be complete without a mid afternoon coffee/tea break at thIs wonderful cafe! It is a truly special place with a beautiful garden in the back. The garden offers a tranquil and peaceful place to take a break while enjoying outstanding...beverages and baked goods.More

We like both their coffee and breakfast items. You can get good drip coffee and/or cold pastries outside on the porch (no inside admittance for customers). Or stand in line for the order window for fancier drinks and breakfast sandwiches or anything warmed up. You...will have to wait until they bring your order out and set it on the table outside. There is some decent seating outside. Bathroom access would be public washrooms a couple blocks up on Butler St.More
