One of my favorite cafes. Very nice contemporary atmosphere, always have new menu options. Offer gluten free and dairy free options. Their quinoa bowls and matcha lattes are my favorites.

contemporary style coffe shop and breakfast menu, you can either get a drip coffe choosing from the day's variety or prepared drinks (lattes, machiatos, expressos, etc. )

Tucked away on the side street in Birmingham is a place called Commonwealth. What a great find! Absolutely delicious food with fast and friendly service. We will definitely be returning to this place.

Commonwealth is one of my favorite Birmigham coffee spots! They have a wide variety of interesting blends but what I feel is the best guilty pleasure....the C LATTE! It’s amazing.

Unusual system, order first then seated. Everything is delicious and fresh. Highly recommend the Ethiopian pour over coffee! Enjoyed the avocado toast with egg, the potatoes/hash browns and the pastries! Looking forward to going back

A great spot in Birmingham. I enjoyed an Americano and one of their breakfast burritos and both were excellent. Prices were decent. Somewhat of a hipster vibe. Really good service. Definitely recommend for brunch or just for a sit down coffee run.
