The owners are friendly and the coffee and chai latte were delicious. The macaroon cookies hit the spot.

Both the year round location, and the seasonal spot by the bay are so great. The owners are just awesome, and the quality is fantastic. My kids love the chocolate moose that they draw on the hot chocolates :)

Everyone is treated as family. Owners spend time to answer questions - where to go, what about. Never rushed. Good value for the dollar.

the staff was amazing and welcoming. As a first timer, they made sure to recommend their favorite items. The coffee was great and the hot cider was one of the best I've had!!!!

The Java Moose is always a favorite when we visit Grand Marais. They have a great selection of unique coffee drinks that you don't find anywhere else. Try the Maple Latte, made with real maple syrup - yum! The location is perfect for enjoying the harbor view, staff are friendly and the mugs make a great memento of your trip... More

Good food, good coffee, good service, good view! What more do you need? Very good build-your-own-sandwich. Fresh ingredients, fast service. We opted to sit outside to enjoy the sunny day (first one in our 7 day vacation-but it didn't last). Nice view of Lake Superior. Although you are next to the street, it is a quiet one, slow traffic.

Stopped for a White Christmas latte and soaked up the sun on their deck. Perfect! Location can't be missed and you can watch the boats in the harbor
