Great coffee on the North Shore! We went there twice on a recent visit to Grand Maris. Even though we are not locals the server remembered what we drank from the day before and as before served us with a smile!

For those that live with / for coffee The Java Moose is home. This no gas station coffee shop. No matter what city/town you live in, this could be YOUR coffee stop in the morning.

Thank you so much for stopping in and taking the time to write a review. We closed last week for a remodel and this weekend was a bit of a relearning for us and our staff. We switched our order of operations and are still working out the kinks. I hope you stop in again and we are able to... More

Stopped in for coffee at the Java Moose. Ambience is not much, but the coffee and treats are excellent. Clean, accessible rest room as well.

My husband and I love a good cup of coffee, especially when it's a cold and snowy weekend in Grand Marais. We definitely had both during our trip up there in February for his 30th birthday.

We are not coffee drinkers, but it was super cold out so we stopped for some hot chocolate. Very yummy! Glad we got the largest size!
