I travel throughout Wisconsin for my job and have had many a cup of coffee in both small towns and big cities. This is without a doubt the best coffee I've had in the state. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly and the shop itself is really well designed. Fresh and big city feel. I brought a bag of coffee home... More

Loved this place. Went every day we were in town, brought coffee beans home that they roast right on sight. They even offer tours and educational information about the process. I am also ordering the coffee on line going forward as I am dead serious it was the best I have ever had. My personal favorite was the lavender latte... More

The people who work here really know what they're doing. I'll admit I'm a complete coffee snob and thought I was out of luck when traveling in this area. I couldn't be more wrong! Big Water could compete with the big boys in any town large or small. There staff was knowledgeable, friendly and they know how to not only... More

Several days ago I came into Big Water for a latte and a piece of banana bread and was immediately greeted by two staff members. Instead of a regular latte, I ordered a Sugarbush Latte which had maple syrup in it. Then I noticed that they also had soup...I ordered the Carrot Potato. Immediately up arriving at my table I...

This place was just down the street from our vacation rental and the smell of coffee was too good to pass up. I was not disappointed. I took mine to go but it seemed like a good atmosphere to sip and read or catch up with a friend.

They blend their own chai and are very good at it. The atmosphere is very friendly with a big room for lounging on couches or at tables. Coffee is superior and roasted on site.

The coffee, teas, and ciders are delicious. It is warm and comfy inside on comfortable furniture. The wifi works great, which is really important in this part of the state. Your own mobile internet is not likely to work up here. You can catch up at this coffee shop.
