From cozy roasts to refreshing brews, we've got you covered with dozens of handcrafted beverages for every season.
FUEL UP WITH COZY CUPS
VELODROME COFFEE COMPANY
Fast, simple, fresh is the motto at this bike-themed coffee shop, but that doesn’t mean boring! Interesting flavors (cardamom thyme iced latte, anyone?), delish dark roast, and quality, fair-trade beans from family farms in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Columbia, and Papua New Guinea, served up swiftly in a light, airy, minimalist space.
Settle into an oversized stuffed chair in this homey restored 1890 Victorian Lady and sit back and sip a cup. Serving Crappie Coffee Roasters, baked goodies, and BODEGA soups. Not in the mood for coffee? No worries, they have a full bar, plus local craft beers on tap, so order up a cocktail or cold brew and relax.
DEAD RIVER COFFEE ROASTERS
Perfectly roasted beans make a perfect cup of coffee. Strong espresso shots, traditional macchiatos, fresh local baked goods. Stop in for a cup, a game of cribbage, and a bag of beans to go. If you like a little something extra with your cuppa Joe, add a shot of their house-made vanilla. Simply sweet perfection.
CONTRAST COFFEE CO.
Serving their own freshly roasted beans in lovely lattes, perfect pour-overs, plus refreshing teas, chais & matchas. Plump muffins, comforting oatmeal, mouth-watering crepes, crispy paninis and more in a cozy space. Try an Iced Honey Lav on a hot day. Cool and refreshing. Or an Espresso Spritzer, for that extra kick!
Small batch, fresh-pressed, fermented beverages, from kombuchas to nano-beers, ciders, meads, craft seltzers and more. Coffee, teas, alcoholic and non-alcoholic brews. For a truly unique experience, sample a flight from their evolving menu. New flavors are always being conjured up so stop in and see what's on tap. You never know what curious combination you might find.
UNWIND WITH SIPS & SUDS
ZEPHYR WINE BAR
Extensive curated wine list from all over the world (they also own a wine shop in town, Everyday Wines), elevated cocktails, artisan cheeses and meats and other seasonal light, unique bites in a warm, inviting, neighborhood gathering spot. Stop in for a nightcap and dessert, a light lunch with one of their homemade soups and a charcuterie tray, or an evening out enjoying great wines and the art on the wall, or the lovely outdoor patio in warmer months.
A local classic, this laidback spot offers dozens of seasonal and staple brews to tempt your taste buds. Warm up around the fire pits on the patio in the winter or enjoy the summer sunshine. Live music, cozy vibe, board games and friendly bartenders make this a definite must-stop all year round. Look for the little yellow house on the corner of North Third and West Michigan Streets. Food trucks outside in the summer months.
ORE DOCK BREWING
Offering up a nice selection of handcrafted Belgian, American, and English style ales in an 1800s building that was previously home to a garage and Chevy dealership. Enjoy a Sampler Flight on their dog-friendly patio, find your fave, and grab a couple of crowlers to go. Hard seltzers, cocktail-inspired brews, and a non-alcoholic option too. Celebrate the Festival of the Angry Bear in the spring, enjoy food trucks in the warmer months, and lots of live music all year round.
BARREL + BEAM
You’ll fall in love with the cozy charm of this former North- woods Supper Club and their farmhouse and barrel-aged brews and rustic ciders featuring all Michigan ingredients. Easy access from the Iron Ore Heritage Trail. Everything from artisan Saisons and fruited sours to Michigan wines and light bites. And if you truly do fall in love here, you can have your wedding here as well.
Enjoy small-batch brews, guest ciders, and wines at Michigan’s first cooperatively owned brewery. You'll find a comfy vibe inside and out on the expansive lawn. Live music, pub games, food trucks, and a dog-friendly Biergarten. We’ll raise a glass and say cheers to that.
