A combination breakfast spot and coffee shop, the instantly successful Commonwealth offers high-end fare in the familiar format of the Pacific Northwest-inspired artisanal/fourth-wave coffee shop. They match their fancy homespun minimalist design sensibility with solid product; those cool-looking bottles of cold brew they recently introduced, for instance, are as tasty as they are powerful. Birmingham is lucky to have such a strong shop.
