First class coffee shop. The test? The patience shown by the barista as she explained to a customer that a real macchiato is made with espresso and milk, and no, whipped cream is not included. Great place. Always stop when we are in Bayfield. This time twice even though we were only passing through.

High quality ingredients and friendly service await you at Big Water! I recommend the honey bee latte or the peach smoothie. There is room to hang out if you wish.

This is a cute coffee shop in downtown Bayfield. The regular coffee was just fine, but their specialty latte was amazing! I also considered begging for the recipe for their homemade granola bars--absolutely delicious!

A great place for a good cup of coffee, a cold drink and light snack. Nice place for conversation and reading.

...if only it were a little closer to home! But if you're in Bayfield (which is worth a trip), this is a wonderful little coffee shop. Great baked goods and really good coffee / coffee drinks. It's the place to stop before you wander the charming streets of Bayfield or head down to the marina to check out the sailboats.

Unique flavors and great ingredients. Busy place for a reason. Thought it seemed a little expensive, but good products.

We stayed on nearby Madeline Island for a week. We stopped in here for some coffee the first day we were in Bayfield. It was so good we came in twice more while we were there. I've been without their cold pressed concoction, it had milk, vanilla, and maple syrup, for almost a month and I'm going into withdrawal. It... More

On a chilly day in Bayfield, we followed the aroma to Big Water. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had basic dark roast coffee, and it was delicious. We enjoyed our coffee at an outside table and enjoyed the downtown ambiance.

This coffee shop has reached my top 10 list of those I have been to. The atmosphere is fun, and the staff are very welcoming. I loved the uniqueness this shop delivers! I had the SugarRush Latte which is sweetened with homemade maple syrup (It's delicious). I've personally have never seen something like that at any other coffee shops. If... More
