Stopped in to check it out. My favorite coffee is White Chocolate Mocha with Raspberry. But I like less coffee shot and more raspberry. It turned out perfect. They seemed to know exactly how I liked it. Definitely will be back!

This place has amazing coffee, tea and food. It's easy to get to. Parking is limited at the building but a short distance away is more parking. It's definitely worth stopping by plus they have Wi-Fi.

This cafe and coffee spot on the main drag is a pleasant and tasty spot for breakfast or lunch. The Poor Richard panini is excellent.

Some serious research went into the toasted sandwiches. The balance of salt, onion, vinegar, vegetable-herb, mozzarella, and moderately sharp cheddar in a place where there is no rush to see you out the door. Good for extended conversations on a budget. Learn to cook here by paying attention to your order. Pay at the juice bar. Eclectic magazines: silent sports... More

Need I say more? After 24 hours in the area we were desperate for good, strong coffee. It's a 20 minute drive from Cumberland where we were attending a wedding. Well worth every mile!

This was a great place to stop for lunch. I loved the decor and how small and cozy the place was. The food was delicious. I ate a turkey, bacon with cheese sandwhich with lemonade(see pic). Everything was delicious. I definitely will be back again. I even took a Mint Mocha Frappe, homemade peanut butter rice crispie & rasberry scone... More

We stopped for lunch at Alley Cats based on the Trip Advisor reviews - and we were not disappointed! The panini sandwiches were very tasty and the staff hospitable. We'll be sure to stop in again next time we are in Spooner, WI.

Robert, the owner is the best. Friendly place, great atmosphere. While the menu is limited the panini sate delicious.
