Northern Minnesota Coffee
I am frequently in Northern Minnesota and I love coffee. Is there any place to get great coffee north of the twin cities? I am fairly familiar with the options in Duluth, but I am specifically looking for a good cup in other places (Hinckley, St. Cloud, Brainerd, Grand Rapids...anywhere really).
I'm not much of a coffee expert, but I remembered that there's a neat little coffee and ice cream shop next to Gordy's High Hat in Cloquet, MN. http://www.warming-house.com/
Also, here's an old recommendation from AnneInMpls for a place in Grand Rapids, MN, though, once again, it's a recommendation for the ice cream. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/6284...
Just coffee? Try the Java Moose in downtown Grand Marais, MN. Nice north shore atmosphere, overlooks the bay and has wifi.
World's Best Donuts also in Grand Marais is also a coffee shop and they have a mug club. You can keep your own personal mug on a shelf in the shop.
