Great coffee shop with great food. Definitely recommend. My son had an omelet and said it was the best he has ever had. Have eaten there many times - everyone should try it!

We waited in line for about 20 min (only 4 orders ahead of us) but lady taking orders was slow as molasses. We finally got to front of line to order and was told that the "grill needed to rest" and they would not even start to make any sandwiches for 35 to 40 min. This was at about 1230.... More

Cute place in downtown Minocqua where the regular have names on their cups. The latte was fast and delish. I ordered the Woody Guthrie (I think) and it was turkey and havarti on cranberry break. Awesomeness! All organic -- lettuce and tomato were super fresh. Homemade sweet potato kettle chips -- I needed more, even though the portion was large!... More

Very cute little shop - one of the artists was actually in there painting while we dined. She was friendly and took some time out to talk with us.

Good food and atmosphere. Nice folks own it with friendly employees. It can be a little wait when they are busy, but each item is made to order. I like their commitment to local vendors and minimally processed food.

After having a hard time finding a place for lunch around noon on a Sunday, we came across this place of the beaten path. Owners and employees were very nice. nice decor. Food was ok, but nothing any of us would order again. Not sorry we went there. Glad we found a place that serves lunch. Would go back.

We choose this for a ladies lunch because of the reviews and were not disappointed. Between the 3 of us, we had the quiche, the Woody Guthrie and the Garrison Keillor and all were delicious!

This place has the best oatmeal we have ever had. The coffee is also fresh and hot. The girl behind the counter was very friendly and welcoming. Our new favorite place in the northwoods.
