Description: Goodwill NCW recently announced the closure of its Harmony Cafe coffeehouses in Green Bay and Fox Valley. But even after the buildings close on Dec. 31 (4 P.M.), The Harmony Cafe spirit will live in all who passed through its doors. And to that end, we'll celebrate Harmony's impact on our region. Harmony Cafe - founded as a welcoming, inclusive, and vibrant place to celebrate diversity - has served thousands of people through hundreds of events and scores of community partnerships. Harmony has affected our region in many positive ways, small and large, and improved the lives of people of all ages, backgrounds, beliefs and orientations.

“Great local place that benefits a good cause”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

They have a huge menu that will please carnivores to vegans. The food is good and they have a full coffee house menu with fresh baked goodies. Service can be slow at times, but the wait is entertaining. There is usually some type of community event going on in their side room.
Great atmosphere that is all about inclusion. This place is run by Goodwill industries and is run pretty much by volunteers and people overcoming personal difficulties.

“A great spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Casual, fresh food, and for a good cause Eating here will benefit Good Will Industries, but the food is great, so everyone so happy. A great place to meet fiends or do business with colleagues. The pesto chicken pizza is my favorite.

“Great meet up spot”

I've been to harmony for several different things including events, meetings in the meeting rooms and just catching up with friends. Great menu for lunch and you get to feel good by supporting a non-profit!

“Positive First Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We will be returning because the menu has a number of unique items and both my wife and I had very good sandwiches. The atmosphere is more collegial/collegiate than quiet dining with the decor, furnishings, staff, and way of ordering and getting your food.

The young lady at the counter was very patient in explaining the set up and how to proceed which was pleasant and made the meal more enjoyable when we got it. [As seniors know we will sometimes encounter the 20-something who shows impatience or does not talk directly and in a loud conversational voice to be heard over the din.]

“" Downtown Appleton Cafe~ Great food, great service"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Nice cafe offering fresh food made to order. Menu offers many vegan and vegatarian options and a wide variety of great sandwiches and wraps. The prime rib sandwich is our favorite. An all around positive experience at every visit.
