Coffee

From our home on the shores of beautiful Lake Superior, we roast small batches of sustainable Coffee beans with the goal of bringing you the best Coffee from around the globe. The concept of fika (a Swedish word meaning Coffee break) permeates everything we do. A fika is a moment of quiet indulgence in an otherwise hectic day, a time to gather with good friends for great conversation, a sweet treat, and a hot cup of Coffee. This concept shapes everything from how we roast our beans to how we connect with customers.

Open Mon-Thu 7:30am-2pm; Fri 7:30am-5pm, Sat 8am-5pm, and Sun 8am-2pm. Closed holidays. Coming soon - online drink ordering and payment for pick up orders.
