Uncommon Grounds -- Burlington, Vermont
At Uncommon Grounds on Church Street coffee is the star. Buck those trendy corporate coffee shops and cross over to where the locals get their first, second, and third cup, Uncommon Grounds. This is coffee nirvana, no tricks or gimmicks here just great tasting gourmet coffee. Not a coffee junkie, but still needing that pick-me-up in the afternoon? No problem. Order the house. If you're in the know, go with the pea berry or any of the other exotic coffees listed on the daily specials. If coffee's not your thing, Uncommon Grounds also serves tea, Italian sodas, and lemonade and iced coffee (in season) -- the ice coffee is just that ice and coffee no need to add half of gallon of cream and a pound of sugar to make it taste good, it already taste good. The staff is friendly, helpful, and well-caffinated, even the longest lines move through quickly. Desserts and pastries are also for sale. Sit down (if you can find a seat -- it's always busy) inside or people watch at the bistro tables outside (weather permitting). When you're in Burlington, get Uncommon!
