The bagels and soup are great! We take the day old bagels home and slice and freeze them. They are great toasted and topped with our favorite spread.

There's always people standing at the door waiting for it to open at 6:30 (7 am on weekends, and people will be waiting!) Superior coffee, including organic and sustainable varieties. Great bakery and sandwiches, cheerful baristas. Trendy millennials and horse trainers in cowboy boots rubs elbows here--something for everyone and the best place in town.

We discovered Uncommon Grounds a few years ago when we visited Saratoga. We had an amazing iced mocha. Returning home from Montreal to New Jersey, my husband and I made it a point to stop in Saratoga just for Uncommon Grounds' iced mocha. It did not disappoint! Look forward to heading up that way again soon.

Came here after dinner and decided I needed a cafe latte and a small dessert. The service was fast and there was lots of seating around with an assortment of characters from town and beyond. Lively crowd, so be prepared if you want a quiet spot which this is not!

been here several times. We usually just grab a cup of coffee to go as we stroll along Broadway. Tasty coffee, many options. It gets very crowded since people like to come and linger at the tables with their free wifi. The line always moves quickly though

This place is a classic. The staff is always friendly, even though they get waves of crazy business! Especially on the weekend the lines can extend through the store or out the door in the morning. Sure sign of a good place.

The oatmeal was great and the portion was large. There were 4 of us- I tried the bagels which were really good as was the coffee. It was very busy but you order at the counter so no waiting for table service. I would eat here often if I lived in the area!

Visited for breakfast food was ok but not amazing. Had bagels with cream cheese that had garlic or something nasty that was on the preparation area. Some of the staff preparing food had long hair and too busy dancing and shouting. Just too busy and manic to create a nice environment. If you are looking for a relaxing time, give... More

Warm and Friendly when you come in and smells so good! Great selection of coffee and so many varieties, the bagels are terrific so are many of the menu items. When in Saratoga Springs, this is a must stop to try, you will be glad you did. So good and quite a variety and this place is always busy.

The lines are long but move fast. The barristas are lively. Coffee and espresso are good. Sandwiches are big. Bagels are good. Not NYC but good. Atmosphere is lively.
