A must when in Minocqua!

We stop here every time we come up north! The Amish bake with cranberry walnut toast and the spinach portobello quiche with Asiago toast are our favorites! Everything is made fresh so there is a little wait but well worth it! We have never had a negative experience and would recommend it to anyone... read more

Joy and Greg have created a wonderful welcoming atmosphere. Well worth the wait for fresh food and great coffee. The Woody Gutherie toasted on cranberry walnut is my favorite. Their Amish Bake is wonderful too. The best things come to those who wait. Sit back slow down and enjoy

What a treasure! Delicious, gourmet coffee, and pastries , and breakfasts- always a treat. So much better than any huge chain coffee shop could ever be. A true Minocqua gem

They only serve food until 2:00. However, they had muffins and a few pastries. I got there within minutes of 2:00, but the food portion was closed. I bought a latte, but it was basically boiling. It took 2 1/2 hours to cool down. I doubt I will return.

We have been here a few times before, and it's always so very good. They have a good selection of pastries as well if you don't feel like a hot breakfast. Very busy place and patience is something required, they will take care of you. The Woody Guthrie omelet is fantastic.

The coffee is wonderful and the food is delicious. Those that work there are kind and courteous. As a new resident, I always found everyone there warm and welcoming.

Have stopped in 4 times, every time for breakfast. Although it is a small menu, the food is always excellent! I like to get to at least one breakfast there every time I'm in the area on vacation

Cute coffee shop. Great soup and quiche with some special bread. We felt very welcome coming in just before they stopped serving for lunch. And the coffee board was great. They have something for everyone.

The sandwiches my husband and I ordered were both excellent and arrived at our table quickly. Large number of beverage choices--we chose the creme brulee hot chocolate, and it was amazing. Can't wait to return to try again. Great location just steps off the main street running through downtown.

My wife and I stopped here when up in Minocqua over the holidays, and liked it so much we came back the next day for more. The food and coffee are excellent, with friendly, efficient service. We will definitely return when in the area again!
