Uncommon Coffee


Uncommon's decor is minimal: exposed concrete, communal table, stark serving bench, tables scattered throughout, window bench seating and some tables on Chapel Street. Throughout this brutalistic architecture, greenery is interwoven, lending the space a feeling of nature reclaiming man-made.

Uncommon is a trendy cafe, but with a lot of competition in this area just opposite Windsor station, it is scarcely too crowded. The espresso coffee is creamy, smooth and strong, and there are filter, cold brew and black coffee options (bonsoy and coconut milk available), as well as teas and hot chocolate. The boutique beers, ample wines and sparkling, and selection of cocktails encourages one to linger and enjoy that little bit longer than a common cafe.

Watching the common world go by


With the culinary focus on completely organic, Uncommon have a plethora of juices available, and their brunch food menu offers unexplored tastes and ventures like salmon pastrami, chickpea & chilli beans, and buckwheat & kale salad, as well as flourished standards such as the avocado on toast (with grapefruit) and sides (maple bacon, etc.). There are also pastries, cakes and muffins to go with the quick takeaway options or to have as a dine-in snack.

To brush over Uncommon's commitment to connecting farm / field to plate is to be unfair. Uncommon's carefully compiled menu does not contain any chemically processed ingredients, additives, bleached flour, refined sugar, and is never reheated nor mass produced. This translates to fresh and very tasty foods.

Uncommon also cater for functions throughout the week, allowing for exclusive use for evening events, accommodating up to 100 guests.

Easy to get to and from, Uncommon suits the morning coffee commute, evening alcohol buzz or late-night cocktail function.
