Worth a stop.

We stopped here on our trip to Bayfield. Darling coffee shop with great coffee. Plenty of room for seating. A window to the roasting room was fun.

We always make it a point to stop for coffee or another treat. Always great service and a nice place to hang out for just a bit.

Excellent cappuccino! The bakery was fabulous. I had the slice of lemon pound cake. They also had soy milk for my girlfriend's coffee. Atmosphere and decor was quite welcoming service and staff were quick and helpful!! Really enjoyable

Been hearing about this quaint coffee shop near Bayfield marina our whole trip...worth the visit! Delta diner serves their own house coffee by them. We couldn't believe the variety of coffee beans available for every palate...great souvenir idea! We tried the mocha lavender coffee and its subtle lavender finish and smooth coffee taste did not disappoint! The Honey Bee coffee... More

We stop by here every time we visit Bayfield for coffee, treats, etc. Love the lemonade. The pumpkin choc chip bread was moist and delicious! Fun to sit in the area with a beautiful leather couch and chairs, tables, or sit at the counter overlooking the windows for people watching. Large variety of coffees to purchase. Well laid out store.... More

We had coffee everyday while visiting Bayfield. The very best we've ever had - and we drink a lot of it! Service good and welcoming atmosphere. Good selections of roasts. If you like good coffee, this is your place!

You know you'll always get a good cup of coffee, latte or whatever's on the menu. The beans are the best, too. Especially Peru Cenfrocafe and Decaf Wet Devil. I love the maple scones there.

It was a COLD Apostle Islands Cruise! Window shopping for take home treasures, the sign for Big Waters Coffee stood out. Walking into the warm aromatic location, we were greeted immediately. The choices are simple... Honey, Maple and Lavendar Latte's our choices. They roast their beans and everyone is invited to check it out. The presentation gorgeous... the drinks... TASTY!... More
