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'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.

Just a quick, post-lunch stop for a latte and chai tea latte. Order at the counter, and they bring it out to you. Everything was excellent tasting and well presented.

My friend and I both ordered coffee and shared the avocado toast. Don't get me wrong- the toast was delightful, but WAY TOO expensive for toast.

When people come to visit metro Detroit, this is where I recommend for brunch if they are looking for somewhere without alcohol. Some of the best coffee and brunch dishes around. Salads are expertly dressed. I recommend the quiches and omelets, as well as the...More

I am not a coffee drinker. Family who are have taken me here. But the food alone is worth it. The lemony dressing on the arugula salad had a three year old stealing it off of someone else's plate in our group. The egg sandwich...More
