The Uncommon Cafe

The Uncommon Cafe is owned and operated by husband and wife.

The Uncommon Cafe is owned and operated by husband and wife sustainably minded team, Lisa & Luc Leimanis. The goal is simple – make great homemade food while attempting to be 90% sustainable. You won’t find mayo jars or ketchup here and almost all of the take out containers are bio-degradable. They even went so far as buying 90% of their décor and equipment from pre-owned sources. Who needs to buy new?

Not only are there yummy sandwiches, baked goods and great locally sourced beverages but they’re even selling some local products. Come in for a coffee and a sandwich and walk out with some locally made hot sauce or jam and a new place to prop your weary feet.

The decor is amazing and so full of quirky different elements to it. Feels like I've been transported back in time to a place I've never been to before. Nice music. Welcoming atmosphere. Had a breakfast bun and a vanilla ice latte cause it was hot outside. The breakfast bun was unique and cute to look at but tastes great. I liked that the latte was not overwhelmingly sweet and it didn't have that acidic aftertaste that some espresso has. Loved loved the fact that they roast their own coffee beans. Definitely a cool little gem that isn't all hipsterish in your face.
