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.

Kitchy atmosphere, can be a little slow. Food and beverages excellent. Fair pricing. Upper levels offer more privacy for conversations.

“Loved the cinnamon barrel bread”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

A quirky, unique place for breakfast. The staff is friendly and helpful.
The espresso is quite good and served in real cups. If you want another, bring your cup back to the counter for a 25 cent discount.
The cinnamon barrel bread was soft, flavorful and just enough to start the day. Scones were delicious.
The cafe is nicely decorated and has lots of comfortable seating, including tables and chairs on the sidewalk.
It's a great place to start the day and watch the world go by.

“Great place to grab lunch and coffee; awesome place to host or check out an event!”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Harmony Cafe is a central community hub for Appleton, doing great work for the community. As a restaurant they are probably 4/4.5 stars, but their overall atmosphere and work deserve five stars! Their only downfall is that sometimes the service can be slow if there is a crowd. You stand in line, order your food, and then wait to be buzzed to pick up your food. The food is of good quality and reasonably priced. They have a good vegetarian section and some of the tastiest salads I've ever had. They also have vegan options. You can also buy Peace Coffee and they will grind the beans for you. There is outdoor seating. The indoor seating is homey wood tables and booths with local artist work hanging on the walls. There is free wifi, computers available for use, and meeting space upstairs (which is free to non-profits). I have had several small events at Harmony. The main reason I go to Harmony is to support the work they do. Harmony Cafe is part of Good Will and does great programming, including hosting an annual AIDS awareness event, open mics, and LGBT programming for youth. I have never had a bad experience with any staff in programming or at the food counter and I have been there many times. I have needed space with short notice and have used both meeting spaces upstairs. They are a gem in Appleton and Green Bay and you should stop by as often as possible.

“Grea location, great food, great atmosphere!”
Reviewed May 29, 2012 via mobile

I can't tell you how many times I've been to Harmony Cafe- from business lunches, to coffee, to watching local musicians on weeken evenings. Everything I've tried (sandwiches, coffees, teas, smoothies) has tasted great. And it's in downtown Appleton, in a neat old brick building with lots of character and ambiance. It seems like there's always a constant flow of people. Definitely recommended for lunch, light dinner, or coffee time.
