Business Description

Located in an elegantly renovated Victorian house built in 1877, you'll find it hard to believe Uncommon Grounds is sited in Uptown Minneapolis on Hennepin. However, when you are cocooned in one of our plush emerald green booths rescued from the St. Paul Hotel's L'Etoile Restaurant or sipping and chatting with friends in the shaded outdoor patio, you'll know that you've found the "heart" of Uptown Minneapolis. When you visit us, you'll meet our loyal regulars and find a large crowd of all ages. Despite our elegant aura, you'll find the atmosphere casual and clean. A great pre-theater or after-dinner place to meet your old friends and make new ones. Drop in this evening for your favorite beverage or one of our famous private label desserts.
