Great breakfast

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!

Nice little coffee shop in downtown Minocqua. Limited menu choices for breakfast or lunch. Owners very nice but selling the place. (New owners apparently lined up). Be prepared to wait...service very slow.

Go on a morning when you have nothing else planned, bring your laptop or a book (or a good friend to chat with), and don't miss the Amish Bake if they're offering it. Friendly counter staff, friendly servers, friendly customers. Hey, if the staff isn't getting stressed about the wait times, you shouldn't either. Enjoy yourself and have another cup... More

The owners are hands on. They set the bar very high with their level of service. Great atmosphere and tasty food...especially the oatmeal!,there are plenty of bakery, tea and coffee options. They offer almond milk if dairy is not your thing.

The coffees and atmosphere (I didn't try the food yet) in this lovely place make it among my favorite destinations anywhere, and that is saying something! Original art for sale, a folky-rock music playlist that could be my own and a spacious place to hang out and enjoy it all! I love the exposed brick and original wood floors in... More

I love this place! It is truly a hometown cafe....all the food is hand prepared and it can sometimes take awhile,but it is well worth the wait. A coffee/ cafe shop should never be somewhere you hurry in and out of....the owners support the local artists, beautiful paintings! Why buy stock prints when you can own an original oil/ watercolor?... More
