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 of our regulars have done.

We have included a sampling above of photos of some of our unique and scrumptious  specials. We hope you will visit us and enjoy 'not-your-average breakfast and lunch fare' at Uncommon Grounds. See for yourself why we were selected  by the Improper Bostonian as 'Boston's Best Breakfast in 2013' and have been a Watertown Reader's Choice Favorite for many years.

Chef Chris is continually creating weekly 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).
