Not only is the coffee good here, but treat yourself to the best granola I have ever had. Homemade and baled. The breakfast sandwich is also top-notch.

Found this cozy little spot for a Wednesday lunch in February (after finding not many places open in Sister Bay). It was worth the hunt and the stop. Good selection of salads and a few sandwiches and wraps. Very friendly service.

I go to Base Camp every time I'm in the area. Their maple lattes are delicious and their breakfast treats are delectable. No complaints.
