Cozy Coffee Bar With A Touch of France

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.

Great coffee and atmosphere. A nice place to relax. Beautiful mosaic artwork on the walls, too. We didn't try any of the food, but the menu looked good.

This place is really cool. It's below the Ecology Sports store in north Sister Bay and is a converted basement with a walkout. Joel is from France and knows his stuff, especially the cheeses, veggies, breads, and soups. It's open year round and is perfect for all seasons. Go here, it's great.

We enjoyed their coffee and apple cider. Though the line was a bit slow to get through, it was worth the wait. They have a great selection of pastries and drinks that are tasty too. Also, they have outdoor seating as well.

We visited BCC on a recent trip to DC. We were staying in Sturgeon Bay, but we spent the day in Sister Bay, and this coffee shop was recommended by locals. I'm so glad we visited, and I wish we could have gone more often. Next time we stay in DC, we'll make it a point to spend a morning... More
