“Great, Unexpected Find!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We visited BCC on a recent trip to DC. We were staying in Sturgeon Bay, but we spent the day in Sister Bay, and this coffee shop was recommended by locals.

I'm so glad we visited, and I wish we could have gone more often. Next time we stay in DC, we'll make it a point to spend a morning lounging, drinking coffee, and eating pastries at BCC.

The menu is impressive (says this Chicago foodie), and our coffee drinks were delicious.

What a quaint, charming local spot. Definitely worth a visit!

“We found France in Door County!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

The hubby had gaspacho and curried egg salad wrap. I had a mozzarella Caprese.tartine and peppermint tea. Both came with a small bowl of cut fresh fruit assortment. It was excellent. I just wish we had known about this place sooner- as we've had a vacation place here now for 6 years.
We definitely will be back as nd highly recommend the place. WiFi too.

Great coffee, great bakery, great quiche and breakfast sandwich. Our favorite place to hang for breakfast. Joel and his staff always treat us well and we always look forward to our time there any time of the year.

merci joel!

“A great find.”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

French baker/owner does it right for breakfast and lunch in this cute north of town Sister Bay foodie favorite. The coffee is great (rare in these parts) and the baked items are what you'd expect from a Frenchman. Spot on! Bien!

“Cozy place for a nice morning cup of coffee.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

This little coffee shop is in the basement of a building. It's hard to find, so you have to know about it. We love their pastries and we really go there for their Latte's - so think and creamy even if made with non-fat milk. Try a Honey Latte - YUM!
