This weekend we enjoyed Downtown Green Bay’s Cafe Crawl! Showcasing Green Bay’s growing independent coffee scene, and some really unique coffee houses. Not to mention - trying out SO many cups of delectable Jo.
Putting myself in a Tourists shoes - it’s easy to pop in at coffee shops you’re familiar with. From Starbies to Dunkin’... we all have our favorites. Let me be your Tour Guide as we crawl (or trolley) through the local coffee houses of Downtown Green Bay.
We kicked off our morning at The Daily Buzz - check in and receiving our Passports was seamless. We stopped by the sample table to grab our first sip, and then on the Trolley (which rotated between each stop) to our next destination. The unique part about this crawl was that we could choose our own adventure! While some opted for walking or traveling via car, we were sure to get the *full experience* by using the Trolly service. On the trolley, we met the driver - who was full of unique stories and experiences over her 26 year bus driver career.
A modern coffee shop just recently renovated to the entire lower level of the Bellin Building - a staple of Downtown Green Bay.
A local favorite. Grounded Cafe was created to break down stereotypes and ageism. Shining a light on strengths and ‘abilities’ of seniors and persons with disabilities. For the crawl they even brought in a local harpist.
Like walking into a warm hug. Cozy up on the corner of Jackson and Bodart with a novel from their used book store. The welcoming, comfortable, and socially aware environment offers exceptional espressos.
Cultivate is newer on the scene in downtown green bay - on the Broadway side! Located a block up from the Dousman Street, cultivate is home to Wisconsins only certified tea specialist. She crafts her own unique blends, sells them packaged wholesale, or you can come in and try them out!
You may have seen them at local farmers markets, or even in Festival Foods! Voyageurs started their journey selling their sourdough - and eventually moved into an open kitchen in the Broadway District. Selling AMAZING baked goods, delectable coffees and tea, and have a modern-organic space. Voyageurs is a fresh escape for a lunch break or even just to grab a quick coffee (their sample included chocolate chip espresso cookies… to die for).
