Colectivo Coffee – Foundry
170 S 1st St, Milwaukee, WI 53204
Walk out the front door and head four blocks East, then turn left and head two blocks North. Right on the corner of First and Pittsburgh, you can’t miss it. Before Colectivo, the space served Kramer International foundry. The building kept the post-industrial look to pay respect to Milwaukee’s manufacturing history. Whether you want some morning brew, a quick bite for lunch, or somewhere to see your friends at night, the foundry has been fanning the flames of the coffee fire since 2006.

Eric Resch founded Stone Creek Coffee in 1993 with the hopes of seeing downtown Milwaukee thrive. What was once a single, small shop in Whitefish Bay has grown to be a local café chain. Each employee faces the new day with child-like awe and seeks to be the best version of themselves. Opposed to seeing the world as it is, Stone Creek Coffee looks at the world for what it could be and strives to take humanity’s obligation to care for our neighbors to the next level. Stone Creek wants to see everyone cared for and included, from employees to customers, to the community, and the environment.
