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

Excellent quiche, but ask for dressing on the side as the salad was over-dressed. Blueberry Lemon muffin was fabulous. What makes the atmosphere are the large, garage door windows that open and give the restaurant a great feel.

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.

Commonwealth is always my go to for lunch in Birmingham. The "C" latte is the best. Great selection of healthy lunch options and great environment. It can be a bit pricey, however, But still a favorite.

Always busy from mothers with strollers to business meetings . Inventive menu - good for coffee, breakfast or lunch. Line to order can be long but with the expansion it moves right along.

I thought this place was fantastic when it first opened and glad it expanded but, the last few times, I have just not been that impressed. The breakfast burrito was my favorite (the salad and all) but, now it is largely flavorless and $4 for...More

We found that on an average weekday Commonwealth Cafe is busy and yet maintains a pleasant configuration with the newly added space and seating. Due to the lengthy dine-in line we decided to order take-out: the © Latte and the Goat Cheese Quiche. While the...More

I've met clients here three times now, and it's a nice change from the ubiquitous and NOISY starbucks. Attentive staff, nice ambiance. I haven't eaten anything but it looks good.
