The perfect Madison picks for a pick me up!
When I am not working at the office or doing showings, you may find me with my computer out at one of the many coffee shops around Madison. Coffee shops are my go-to spots for casual meetings new clients and also where I go when I want to get inspired in creating new content and goal setting for my business. I have yet to find a coffee shop that I hate in Madison, but here are my top five favorites:
Barriques –They have multiple locations around town for a quick stop anywhere. I probably hit up the downtown and Middleton Barriques most frequently. They always have a relaxing, low-key atmosphere and excellent coffee. Bonus? If I stay there all day, I can even top things off with a glass of wine!
Colectivo – Great coffee, food, and even better atmosphere! I love the indoor/outdoor spaces and in the warmer months when they open those amazing garage doors and let the fresh air roam.
Ancora – Their newer location in downtown Madison is lovely, and their drink options are probably my favorite from this entire list. You have to try the white zombie, a unique drink made with white espresso beans. It has a rich nutty flavor and the bonus of having more caffeine, which as a business owner and mom of two little boys, I can always use.
Lakeside St Coffee – Coffee with a view! A hidden gem, in my opinion. A cozy venue with pretty views of the Monona bay. The coffee, location, and occasional live entertainment make this an exceptional spot.
So if you are like me and feeling a little tired or looking to get out of the office for a change in scenery, check out one of these spots. And let me know your favorites in the comments!
