“very neat place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Really loved the 5th and Elm coffeehouse in downtown Houghton!
It is just steps from everything in town and only a quick walk from Michigan Tech University. The coffee and tea was both very good and food items are high quality. It is a cool, fun atmosphere and a great place to spend an hour or an entire afternoon. I recommend it.

“Surprise find in Houghton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

While exploring downtown Houghton, we found 5th and Elm and stopped in for lunch. While it took a long time to get our order, the wait was worth it as the chicken quesadilla was full of flavor. The Reuben was piled with corned beef and filling. If you are in a hurry, you might want to go elsewhere but if you have the time the wait is worth it.

“Excellent coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This place is very competent in terms of baristas. They have soy milk and didn't hit you too much for the extra. It was a very good latte. I didn't try the food.

“Great coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

I always get my coffee from 5th and Elm whenever I am on the UP. They only have one blend (black and tan), but they do it very well. Always the same cup of Jo. Their staff is also very friendly and good for a chat of things happening locally.

“Just delicious and kitchy to boot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We stopped in here for the frozen yogurt, and stayed for the delicious sandwiches. I was a little disappointed that they were out of hummus, but then I ordered a Chicken Cordon Bleu sandwich on ciabatta, and man, was it good! Lots of tender chicken and melty, oozy cheese on very fresh bread. We ordered at the counter but they brought it to our table with a smile.
I loved all the bicycle tire wall/fence outside. Very cool place.
