Good coffee and views to boot

Other than coffee at a breakfast joint there are limited options for a good cup of Joe in Grand Marais, but don't let that fool you, The Java Moose produces a good range of good quality espresso based coffees as well as some tasty drip coffees.

In the "olden" days a decade ago the Moose was the place to go for coffee, wifi, and local color. I've seen the other reviews, and apparently I'm one of the few who have been disappointed by what seems to be a slip in quality. Perhaps I've been spoiled by the lattes (my usual drink) made at my local Dunn... More

Two locations in Grand Marais. Good little place for coffee, juice, hot chocolate or Chai. Indoor or outdoor seating. They even offer sandwiches to go if you are going on a day pack around the area.

Java Moose is a great little hometown coffee shop. We stopped in for coffee two out of our three days in Grand Marais. The coffee is tasty, the atmosphere is cozy, and the employees are friendly. There is seating inside or outside, with a view of the lake. It was always busy inside, which is telling of how great it... More

Java Moose is a nice little place to stop for a cup of java in Grand Marais. Nice atmosphere, good coffee and friendly baristas make it a winner.

When we're up in Grand Marais, we always make a point to stop in for some coffee and maybe a tasty treat. Sure, the wireless Internet is a nice touch, but I'd rather sit out on their deck, kick my feet up and watch the sailboats come in and out of the hrabor. Great atmosphere,

As a coffee snob I am always a little leery about going to new local coffee shops. They all seem to have a distinct taste and I am never sure if I will like there taste. This is a small but good coffee shop. The barista worker offered me a sample of the coffee to check to see if I... More

Friendly, happy place -- free internet, good coffee - good looking (though I didn't try one) treats. A little short on parking, but they seem to get along.

Smooth coffee and espresso, not bitter like some chains make it. Muffins are homemade and sandwiches made to order. Stop here - you'll be glad you did.
