The Uncommon Ground coffeehouse and café leads the pack in going green. With two locations in Chicago, Illinois, this eco-conscious full service restaurant has been wowing Chicago diners for over twenty-years with its commitment to environmental sustainability and delicious contemporary American cuisine. The newest restaurant in the historic Edgewater neighborhood was recently named the “Greenest Restaurant in America.” It boasts the nation’s first certified organic roof top farm.
The original eatery in the Lakeview area took second place honors as the greenest restaurant in the country. That’s quite an accomplishment! From day one, co-owners Helen and Michael Cameron were committed to using only seasonal, locally produced, family farmed and organic products whenever possible. Their business motto is, “Uncommon Ground cares about the earth and you!”
Uncommon Ground feeds all of your senses. In addition to the laid-back eco-friendly ambience, sidewalk cafe and mouth-watering food, Uncommon Ground also delights their customers with local art exhibits and live music performances.
The extensive menu offers breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. The award-winning breakfast-brunch offerings are legendary. Dishes such as, vanilla bean custard stuffed French toast, lemon-poppy seed pancakes and fluffy omelets, are complemented with sides of Gunthorp Farm house-made chicken sausage, house-made Duroc pork sausage patties and Jones Dairy Farm cherry smoked bacon.
For lunch and dinner: grilled Q7 ranch grass-fed beef steak, crispy Gunthorp Farms duck breast and the popular chopped salad, keep diners coming back for more. Don’t forget to leave room for dessert!
