Very welcoming, warm atmosphere. Great place to grab a drink and some food and enjoy some R&R, or hop on the zippy wifi and get some work done.

For as hot as it was this July, they were very busy. Hot and cold beverages. Like the other summer location on the bay too.

What more would a tourist need? We stop here whenever we're in town. Delicious coffee and the best ice cream in town

Coffee was great! Huckleberry and white chocolate - delicious! Fast and friendly service despite being busy. Iced latte great too! Prices a bit steep but comparable to other coffee places.

I visited both locations while in Grand Marais and they were both very nice. The service was quick and friendly and my coffee brewed to perfection. I bought some java moose special blend beans to enjoy when I returned home.

They have two places now. One right by Bear Park and the shore, the other on Hwy 61 as you come into town. The owners are very nice, super friendly and they make good coffee. See lots of people also going to the one on Hwy 61 for ice cream. Haven't tried that there.

Nothing too wowing, but nothing negative, either--right on the way to the downtown area for your morning coffee ;)
