Excellent coffeehouse. They roast their own beans, bake their own goods and have some fun takes on drinks. I forgot what it's called, but you must try the coffee with locally sourced honey. It's lovely.

We stopped during a walk through Bayfield and loved the atmosphere of the coffee house. They had all their coffee for sale, unique and fun clothing options. Along with scrumptious looking baked goods! Our lattes were average, should have stuck with their great basic coffee!
