This is a comfortable place with super friendly people. Interesting food options such "meatloaf Mac n Cheese sandwich" and some great looking desserts. Located just across the street from the garden center.

Relaxing atmosphere with great espresso, Crate & Barrel type décor, and friendly staff. I would recommend stopping by if you want to just take a moment and soak in the day :)

We had fantastic coffee, a great lunch and terrific desserts (apple pie and pumpkin bread)! Really home made taste! We sat on the wonderful back patio which faces the bike path. The inside is great too with tons of charm. This was our favorite restaurant in town!

A great spot for coffee and lots of sweets. Pies, muffins, cookies, sweet breads and even homemade caramel popcorn are available. Perhaps the calorie intake is the reason the shop is located next to a bike trail!! Stop in for a wonderful treat.

A Saturday drive to New Glarus, WI on our motorcycle was made special by this little coffee and light sandwich shop. The location is right on the Sugar River bike trail and you can watch the bikers go by and take in the fresh air along with your coffee and or meal. Great staff, good food and a unique setting....

We have been here a few times when we've visited New Glarus, and have always found them to serve good coffee and baked items. The cappuccinos we had on our most recent visit were great - flavorful espresso and perfect foam. We haven't eaten anything other than banana bread, but that was good. It's a nice place to enjoy coffee... More

Saturday morning at 10 am. 1 other person there, 2 people working. Took over 10 minutes to make a latte. I saw a sign saying they now have almond milk & when them to use it they were very mad I hadn't said this upfront. Up to that point they were wiping counters and hadn't even started to brew yet....
