“Great coffee & breakfast spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

We swung by for breakfast (awesome biscuit sandwiches) and had fabulous coffee. We liked it so much, we came back the next morning, too. Great location in the third ward. How about opening one in MSP?!

“Great place to meet friends.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

Colectivo is a very nice place to meet friends and family members.
You can spend some leisurely time just catching up, or if there is not a lot of time, just to grab a bite to eat, and beverage, and be on your way. The one I go to has a nice fire pit where one can stay warm in the cooler weather, and still be able to sit outside in the sunshine. Very friendly servers. They are always ready to correct any problem that you might have with the food or coffee.
They have Wi Fi for those that like to work while eating. And one can feel very comfortable going there by ones self.

“VERY good coffee and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Liked: coffee. Really good Latte. Atmosphere - cool converted warehouse vibe meets coffeehouse meets library. Community - great location with lots of college students and residents. The story of how it came to be.
Disliked: that I only got to go once.

“Great coffee, Amazing baked goods”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

Colectivo is our neighborhood coffee shop. We live near the new Wauwatosa location. Our whole family-- mom, dad. 3 & 4 year old love it. The new location has the awesome fire pit outside that the family has taken advantage of on a few snowy days...fun and memorable! The staff are always helpful, friendly and warm. The coffee service is not super speedy, but fast enough on most days considering the # of custom "pour-overs" they are often required to make----in addition to all other contemporary coffee shop beverages. I appreciate that their cafe mocha has no sugar...yep it's unsweetened chocolate!!! Make it as sweet as YOU want. The food is good, always fresh, high quality ingredients. But it's the baked goods that I crave. I am a self described foodie, the kind who won't eat many foods because they are worth the calories. I absolutely love the baked goods at Colectivo, in particular I love the morning bun (which is now the sunshine bun?) and their biscotti. So YUM!!!! This coffee shop also is truly local. You can look into how the owners stayed local by selling the Alterra BRAND and re-engineering into Colectivo. My co-worker in Milwaukee lives in the same neighborhood as one of the owners. So, drink great coffee, eat amazing and so worth the calories baked goods and support our community!

“Great coffee, cool atmosphere”

Some of the best coffee around. We love the Bayview location and the drinks are spectacular. We got a bag of Blue Heeler beans for at home and it's delicious.
