Just a simple coffee bar, to hang out!

It's the Starbucks of Sister Bar. Cute place in the lower level of a historic building. Full service coffee bar with many twists, and they also make soups and sandwiches/wraps, desserts and croissants! Cozy place to hang out, chat or use their wifi.

Good coffee, average food, our server was a little bit sarcastic. I would say it has character, but not the BEST Door Country has to offer.

Base Camp in a cozy scenic coffee bar with a touch of France. The owner Joel is a warm and friendly French Canadian with a flare for baked good and great Quiche. He also makes great sandwiches on French bread. They rent cross country skies and snow shoes. Oh by the way, their coffee is excellent.

Warm atmosphere, below a very nice outdoor, adventure wear shop...Ecology Sports. The French owner brings homemade treats that he bakes or prepares himself, with all the freshest, and often organic ingredients. Popular with locals and welcoming to visitors. Great place.

The door at the back of Ecology Sports (wonderful BTW) makes it look like a tiny place. But the door leads to steps to the basement, and Base Camp is larger than you might guess just seeing the doorway. Very good coffee drinks, lunch menu, friendly people and a nice cozy place. Woodburning stove was lit the cold Fall day... More

They always have something new on the menu. It is a nice place to stop for your coffee. If the weather is nice they have outdoor seating.
