Great Coffee, Excellent Location

We visit Big Water every time we're in Bayfield -- often a couple of times a day. Normally get the brewed coffee, but this time also tried a latte made with local honey, which was delicious! Completed the trip with beans and swag for home, including a couple of mugs. Great spot, great coffee... read more

We stopped at this place twice during our stay in Bayfield. There is nothing wrong with the coffee, but nothing special either. The wifi signal is worth hanging out for.

Excellent, strong coffee the way we like it and good prices. I rarely go for anything else but regular coffee of the day. Never been interested in anything with add ons which to me, ruin a great coffee. Always bought 2 extra in the evening for the following morning for when we first awoke as hotel room coffee is always... More

The coffee is great and the design they put in the froth is unique. The atmosphere and smells are great. Great décor... and very up to date trendy.

Very cute, independent, community cafe. Should definitely visit if you're in Bayfield. Good coffee, chai lattes, and cool merchandise. I bet I'd spend a lot of time here if I lived in Bayfield.

I've been to Bayfield many times and have always wanted to stop in for coffee. We usually are at a B and B for breakfast with plenty of coffee. We stopped in one afternoon for an iced coffee and enjoyed the atmosphere very much. Nice seating area's to just sit and chat. Wish I hadn't passed this one by for... More

We needed coffee, wanted coffee, and requested coffee. We had excellent coffee at Big Waters Coffee Roasters and appreciated the early hours. The servers were smiling and the seating area was clean with a variety of seating. We'll be back.
