Comprehensive Coffee Guide - Lakeshore to Lake Country


You might remember my post about my favorite coffee shops in Milwaukee from a while back, but a lot has changed on the coffee front in the past few years! I felt compelled to put together a comprehensive list if you're in the lakeshore to lake country area and are looking to skip the Starbucks... it's not every coffee shop, but it's a lot of them, and you're sure to strike it rich with a quality cup of joe at any of these spots! Happy sipping, friends!


Lake Country

Stone Creek

You will literally see me here every day getting a cardamom latte - this cafe is my lake country saving grace! You can also find Stone Creek in the Brookfield & Milwaukee area.

1043 Summit Ave, Oconomowoc, WI 53066


Roots

I've spent many a morning chatting by the fire at Roots! Serving Anodyne coffee at their establishment, might I suggest adding a twisted grilled cheese to your order (bonus if you add bacon!).

124 E Wisconsin Ave, Oconomowoc, WI 53066


Blue Collar

Blue Collar serves Wisconsin-based Ruby coffee roasters in their cafe - I'm a huge fan of the rustic aesthetic in the shop, too!

523 Milwaukee St, Delafield, WI 53018


The Steaming Cup

Paul and I used to live a block away from this cafe, so needless to say, we were regulars. Great coffee with a cozy atmosphere, you can't go wrong!

340 W Main St, Waukesha, WI 53186


Mountain Top Coffee

Serving Anodyne coffee in their cafes, Mountain Top is another cafe that was just down the street from my old apartment. If you're looking for coffee in Waukesha, be sure to head to Main St!

What kind of coffee list would this be if I didn't include Colectivo? A southern Wisconsin staple, you'll find one of these cafes littered across the Tosa/Milwaukee areas - for good reason, it's great coffee!
