This is a college hangout, however you will find a very eclectic mix of people reading or on their computers. Large selection of sandwiches and salads, and good coffee. I have never liked their bagels. They are huge, and extremely chewy...not my preference in a bagel. It is always busy, but a great place to hang out.

Good bagels, you won't find true NY style up here but they are the closest. It's the water. NY bagels are NY bagels because of NY water. Those who know, know. The coffee is pretty good. The staff seems miserable constantly.

They have a huge selection of bagels (try the sun dried tomato). If you're stopping by on a saturday or sunday morning, be advised there will likely be a line out the door. The bagels are huge and some of the best I've had. I normally get a breakfast sandwhich. The ingredients are all fresh and delicious. No microwaved eggs here. There's not a heck of a lot of seating though, so you may want to get a to-go order. if you have the choice to go here or Panera, go here. It's a little cheaper and much better!

I only visit the capitol region a few times per year but no visit would be complete without visiting Uncommon Grounds. The bagels are excellent, probably the best I've ever found outside of NYC. The coffee and tea are also excellent. The wi-fi is free although they do occasionally turn it off around lunch time to encourage people to move along. The house blend coffee is my favorite coffee.
