Great little place

Good food and atmosphere. Nice folks own it with friendly employees. It can be a little wait when they are busy, but each item is made to order. I like their commitment to local vendors and minimally processed food.

After having a hard time finding a place for lunch around noon on a Sunday, we came across this place of the beaten path. Owners and employees were very nice. nice decor. Food was ok, but nothing any of us would order again. Not sorry we went there. Glad we found a place that serves lunch. Would go back.

We choose this for a ladies lunch because of the reviews and were not disappointed. Between the 3 of us, we had the quiche, the Woody Guthrie and the Garrison Keillor and all were delicious!

This place has the best oatmeal we have ever had. The coffee is also fresh and hot. The girl behind the counter was very friendly and welcoming. Our new favorite place in the northwoods.

I was passing through Minocqua on business and found the Great Northern Coffee Shop. The coffee is superb, the free Wi-Fi great, the food inviting and the atmosphere perfect for a local coffee shop that's not a national chain.

We didn't have a chain for our bikes so we got food to go and the lady who rang up our sale was so kind! 2 sandwiches ordered and a smoothie. Bread was delightful! The lady who brought our food then asked us if we needed a phone book to look up a number we were discussing. Such great service!!... More

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! Try the Red Summer Sun or... 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
