I used to enjoy dropping in to Uncommon Grounds on South Park Street for a quick lunch or a cinnamon bun in the morning. It has gone seriously downhill. The food is still good--though not what it used to be (for example, their tasty bit...More

This cafe has many comfy couches and chairs. It's quite spacious, as well, with a cool atmosphere. I like reading here, since it's usually fairly quiet and I am able to relax on a couch. The coffee is great, and there many snacking options to...More

Lovely waitress , superb atmosphere and they even have a chess set so presumably if you are that way minded you can dive in. It's the sort of place where people linger. I wrote in my journal and watched the rain pour down.A haven.

Coffee is fantastic. Will be stopping by again for sure. Great walk to get there from downtown, lots of historic houses.

The notoriety of this place is what keeps them going. The coffee isn't the best, food is bland and massively over-priced. If you love local there are heaps of other food businesses and coffee shops close by that are doing it better.

Such a great place to have a (local) coffee and relax! I always go there for coffee and a quiet place to do some work. If you are looking for a treat to accompany your coffee then I recommend any of the scones- yum!
