2015 & 2016 READERS CHOICE



In 1998, we started on this journey as a coffee house but our new throng of customers wanted us to do more.  They wanted great food to go along with their cup of excellent coffee.   We revamped our line and added breakfast and lunch and our business has not stopped growing since.  We hope you become part of the Uncommon Grounds family as so many others have done.

Chef Chris is continually creating new specials that will keep your taste buds excited. Our menu includes these hard-to-resist special dishes as well as the classic breakfast and lunch favorites. winner!  Our soups are all created from scratch such as the New England clam chowder which is loaded with fresh clams and potatoes. We use quality ingredients from many local purveyors.  Many dishes reflect a cultural food influence such as the Rustico Omelet (with proscuitto) or the Margarita Breakfast Sandwich (reflecting an authentic Mexican cuisine). 

Our History

We now carry baked goods from Pain D'Avignon including fresh bagels, croissants, sliced breads, & biscottis.
