Great place in Door County

Great coffee and tea menu. The food is delicious. There is always new art on the walls that is available for sale. My kids say they have the best chocolate chip cookie in town! And there are a lot of chocolate chip cookies in Door County!

Absolutely love the cherry coffee cakes, the base camp power bars, the perfectly moist lavender cookies, pumpkin layer cake and the quiche are done to perfection. They grow many of their herbs and ingredients and the quality is impeccable. Joel and his staff are super inviting and friendly. It is a stop for breakfast every time we're in town. I... More

Today is a rainy day in Door County, and as I sit here I am day dreaming of being at base camp. Craving a latte, and any of their delicious sweets to go along with. It's a lovely spot to enjoy a meal, start your day off right, or treat yourself to a mid-day break. It goes without saying it's... More

I spent a rainy afternoon at Base Camp sipping a maple latte while playing several games of cribbage with my husband. It was perfect. I love the outdoorsy atmosphere, and the quality of the beverages was great.

A nice combination of baked goods, soups, quiche, salads....creative combinations of fresh foods. I had something called "the comfort grilled cheese," that was so good, it just wasn't in the same class as a grilled cheese sandwich (it was made with ciabatta and had pesto and grilled veggies).

Wonderful quiche and other breakfast and lunch selections. Great coffee. Free wifi. It is below an "outdoor shop" that has a few supplies but a very nice selection of women's wear. Very little for men. Wish the coffee shop were open later than 3:00.

I love the location of this cafe (of the main area) because if seems so much more personal. The food is always good and the tea and coffee are great!

Great coffee - really nice owner, offered to go out of his way and make something special/close to something that was no longer available on their menu. Only thing is, it's such good coffee, that there is usually a long wait.
