Alterra Coffee‘s lakefront location is simply beautiful. I believe the story of the location is that it was a water treatment facility in its past life. Now the space is open and high and full of smells of wood and coffee and good food. It was a refreshing reintroduction to Wisconsin after being gone for a year: motorcycles cruising by, gorgeous old brick buildings, and a plentitude of people just letting it off and enjoying a summer day. Plenty of seating indoor (and outdoor in the summer). Brewed coffee, espresso beverages, and lunch-like foods are available.
