Great little coffee shop in a comfortable setting. Bread and pastries are delicious. Sandwiches and Quiche are very good. Plus they rent XC Skies.

Thank you for your nice review, glad you had a good experience. Our ski rentals are now moved to Ecology Sports, downtown Sister Bay (in winter)

In addition to the good coffee and great pastries, Base Camp often has local musicians performing. Sometimes the music is background, sometimes it's the main attraction. All the time Base Camp is welcoming and cozy.

We stopped by for the coffee. But, the French pastry is what hooked us. It’s made daily. Go early or you’ll be disappointed.

We just needed coffee and walked into a magic little treasure. Wonderful atmosphere in an old church, great service, music, art, and amazing coffee! We had a gluten free chocolate pastry that was delicious! Felt like we were in Quebec!
