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.

Just across the street from Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design is Likewise Coffee. For those who prefer a bright, open coffee shop with chairs and table space to work hard, this is the shop you’re looking for. The floor-to-ceiling windows allow for an awesome amount of natural light to stimulate your brain. The distanced tables make it easy to spread your books, papers, and computer to turn the shop into your studio. Come for the coffee or the vegetable bagels and heart-healthy smoothies.

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.

Anodyne Coffee was created in 1999 in an effort to be the best small-batch roaster in Milwaukee. Their goal is to use the least amount of technology possible to get the measurements exact and be able to serve the same cup of coffee you remember, each and every time. Partnering with the Peru Yanatile Valley and Colombia La Pradera, Anodyne has been able to grow with their suppliers. The Valle Inca Cooperative is headed by Prudencio Varga Saenz who buys everything from his farmers to help inspire the growth of the best possible beans.
