Description: Big Water Coffee Roasters is an artisan coffee roaster located on Lake Superior's south shore in Bayfield, Wisconsin, featuring homemade soup and fresh baked goods (with gluten-free and vegan options always available). Stroll down historic Rittenhouse Avenue, you will find our shop located in view of the Big Lake that gives us our name. We are open year-round, serving as a gathering place for the community that we call home. You are sure to find both locals and visitors alike enjoying their day, a step outside the of the regular pace of life, a welcome breath of fresh air.

My husband and I were on a camping trip and ended up in Bayfield. We stopped at Big Water Coffee and came back twice! I love this little spot! The atmoshpere is great! But most importantly, the coffee was wonderful. You can tell this was high quality. i would recommend this to anyone stopping through!!

Few restaurants get it right. Big Water Coffee does. Quality customer service. Quality product. Quality atmosphere. This is a couple that recognizes if you create a great product, train a staff to treat customers like friends, and provide a place where a community can come together, you have the perfect synergy for a coffee shop. They cover the basics - free wifi, lots of outlets, various spots to lounge, window and table seating. Various coffee drinks (and they top off specialty drinks with beautiful artwork). They now do monthly cuppings for folks who want to learn more about coffee. They no longer offer a full menu. But, they do offer fabulous pastries, hearty granola bars and other delights you'd expect to enjoy in a coffee shop. If you love the coffee you drink, you can buy the beans as well. Important to note, they roast all of their beans on-site. They are a true roaster and coffee shop. Good stuff all around!
