The Best Coffee Shops in Green Bay

Titletown. A magical place known for football, beer, cheese, and…coffee? Okay, so Green Bay, Wisconsin isn’t necessarily known for its coffee scene. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great coffee shops in Green Bay for you to explore and enjoy.

Whether you’re looking for a place to relax with a latte or you need a caffeinated kick in the pants after a long day of tailgating, Green Bay has plenty of options.

In this post you’ll get an inside look at three of the best coffee shops in Green Bay. Ready for kick-off?

3 Essential Green Bay Coffee Shops

The third largest city in Wisconsin, Green Bay sits at the southern end of…you guessed it…Green Bay, which is an arm of Lake Michigan. It is the home of the Green Bay Packers (duh!) and the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame. It’s also home to the National Railroad Museum and the Neville Public Museum. Plus, it has a smattering of delightful coffee shops.

If you ever find yourself leaving Lambeau Field in need of a pick-me-up, consider one of these three essential Green Bay coffee shops.

Kavarna Coffeehouse

This is one of those coffee shops that you know is good just by looking at it. It’s welcoming – a place you want to spend your morning in, sipping on something warm while you study, work, or chat with an old friend. And once inside, it doesn’t disappoint.

Kavarna has classic coffee shop vibes with exposed brick walls and wooden beams in the unfinished ceiling. It’s just what you need to warm your cockles on a cold Wisconsin day.

Fortunately, the coffee is just as delightful as the ambiance. Kavarna uses ethically sourced beans that they roast in house. It’s undoubtedly some of the best coffee in Green Bay.

Choose from all the traditional coffee shop drinks, and then some. (Try the Bullet Coffee with CBD-infused organic coconut oil.) And rest assured knowing that whatever you order is of the highest standard and quality.

Incidentally, Kavarna means coffeehouse in Czech. But you’ll find more than just coffee here. Kavarna offers a large selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes, many of which can be made gluten free. And they almost exclusively use fresh ingredients from local producers in the area.

Kavarna is a must-visit if you’re in Green Bay. Order up your drink of choice, grab a bite if you’re hungry, hang out, and enjoy the atmosphere.

The Creamery Downtown

With an emphasis on atmosphere, The Creamery may be the optimal place for Green Bay tourists. It’s located downtown, nestled along the Fox River with a great view of the water. The Creamery is clean, modern, and comfortable.

Because it’s, you know, Green Bay, parking won’t be much of an issue. But you’ll still need to find a spot on the street and walk a short distance.

More than just a coffee shop, The Creamery has a fantastic food menu with a variety of options for breakfast and lunch.

If you’re looking for a laid-back coffeehouse vibe, The Creamery may not be the place for you. But they do have some damn good coffee. Indulge in a cup of organic pour-over coffee or try the house-made chai. They also have a wide selection of loose leaf teas.

HINT: Stop in for brunch and enjoy bottomless mimosas.

Copper Rock Coffee Co.

Enter Copper Rock Coffee and you’ll almost certainly wonder if you’ve stumbled into a coffee shop or a brewery. A valid concern for sure. Well, you’ll be happy to know that you’ve stumbled into both.

Located in the heart of Green Bay’s Broadway District, Copper Rock Coffee sits inside the Copper State Brewery, an old, historic building with a fully operational brewery.

Copper Rock Coffee offers all the classics and more. Choose from an array of espresso drinks, drip coffee, pour overs, cold brew, smoothies, frappes, loose leaf tea and chai tea. You can order breakfast, lunch and dinner through the brewery.

Copper Rock is surprisingly cozy if you get there before the lunch. Once the bar opens, though, it becomes a little less like a cafe and a little more like a brewery. So, shoot for getting to Copper Rock in the morning, when it’s got major coffeehouse vibes.

If it’s a nice day, you can enjoy your coffee on the expansive patio while taking in the view of the Fox River. Or you can hunker down in the fireplace room, which is perfect for working or reading.

Copper Rock Coffee, by the way, is a business totally separate from the brewery, and they take their coffee seriously. They roast their own beans and hire skilled baristas. So, if you’re in Green Bay, consider Copper Rock for your caffeine fix.
