The Best Coffee Shops on the North Shore

There is no better way to warm up on a chilly winter day than with a piping hot cup of coffee. The North Shore in Minnesota is frigid in winter, but it has some cozy coffee shops too. You’ll be in the right place at Cascade Lodge. We’re close to many winter activities and near some great coffee shops on the North Shore. This is where we go when we need a warm-up.

Java Moose Espresso Cafe

Location: 218 MN-61, Grand Marais

If you need something warm to take with you on your winter hike, stop by Java Moose Espresso Cafe. It’s only open for carry-outs, but that makes it the perfect place to stop in, grab a cup, and continue walking through the gorgeous snowy trails along the lakeside. This business also sells beans and more. Take something home with you or give a mug as a gift to another coffee lover.

Fika Coffee

Location: 5327 W. Highway 61, Lutsen

When you wake up early at Cascade Lodge and head to our lobby you’ll find some warm cups of Fika coffee as a complimentary treat. We also serve Fika at our restaurant and use it in all of our specialty hot cocktail drinks all winter long. We like it and we think you will too. Head into Lutsen for more Fika Coffee.This coffee shop fits the bill if you are on your way to an exciting snowmobile trail, heading to or from the ski hill, or if you need some time to relax. Fika Coffee will satisfy you from your first sip. If you are in a rush, be sure to grab a bag or two of their coffee beans to take home.

Start Your Winter Vacation Off Right with the Best Coffee

We couldn’t ask for better coffee shops than the ones on the North Shore. It’s the best way to get the blood pumping in the morning before you hit the ski slopes or spend a long day talking with old and new friends.
