Fodor's Review

The original location of Uncommon Ground is roomy and inviting, with a hand-carved bar and large street-facing windows offering views of passersby. Patrons brave the wait for bowls of coffee and hot chocolate. There's also a full bar and a hearty menu. Perks include two fireplaces, a sidewalk café, and a steady lineup of acoustic musical acts. A second location on the Far Northwest Side gets bonus points for eco-friendliness, with a green roof, solar panels, and tables made from reclaimed wood.
