Great cup of java
Never thought they had bad food, until I tried a coffee cake. #terrible Also, THEY NEED TO STOP RUNNING OUT OF PUMPKIN MUFFINS!
Great mocha and the cucumber cream cheese is great on a nicely toasted bagel.
Very beautiful place, great coffee!
Update: So yeah, that tip I left back in Sep 2012...? Right. I just hit my head on a lamp. Shame on me.
The pretzels with spicy mustard make for an awesome snack, but they go quickly.
Very kind workers, always make you feel comfortable!
Ethiopian blend, brownies AND parking!? Believe it.
There's a line outside of the door right now and good luck to get a place to sit. A bit too small of a space to be this busy
My favorites for mornings are the Green Hornet, Bull Frog, Bacon Biscuit, or any of their Quiches and of course the Fruit.
Collectivo charges 6.1 % taxes. I thought wi taxes were 5.6 %
Try the espresso of the week. It costs the same as the regular stuff and it's always good.
Love the coffee but the mochas need more chocolate and the espresso tastes burnt.
Try the coffee : p
Bring a portfolio folder, and some old glossy technical flier, to make your own window blind to shield your screen from the glare.
Nicaragua coffee always the best. Iced dark chocolate mochas are amazing
Great place for detox drinks
Almond croissants to die for....service, not so much...atmosphere makes up for that!
Their honey lattes are delish.
Need breakfast? I love the burritos! Need lunch? The smoked salmon sandwich is my favorite. You can't go wrong with any of the coffees, and be sure to treat yourself to a smoothie every now and then!
The baked oatmeal is Amazing!
It's good coffee.
Wolfgang is the man.
Killer White Bean Soup, and the Alterra Organic Free Trade coffee is fantastic!
Make sure your computer is charged because there are VERY FEW OUTLETS here. I love this place but its so tough to find a good spot with an outlet!
Be careful standing up from the tables. I just saw a woman bonk her head on a light. Granted, she looked extremely hipster doing it, due to her kewl reaction, but still, tuck and roll, my babies.
Butter and touch-screens do not mix well. Please bagel responsibly. [via twitter @ebsewi]
*Check-in special* Spot a bearded employee and get your drink for free!
If you get the "Milwaukee's Best Brownie," make sure you have someone to share it with! It's a brick of a brownie :)
Amazing coffee and a good place to hang out. Try their raspberry muffins!
Amazingly strong coffee, I'll never drink anything else!
Get the Iced Chai in the summer.. or any time.. and ask for it with a shot of vanilla!
It seems like the expresso shake is the most inconsistant drink they make here, never know how it'll turn out each time you order it.
Outlets are available only on the East wall by the windows and the bar on the other side near the displays.
Oh God, the pretzels.
Best food and drinks on the fucking planet.
Check out the new brew bar.
Use your punch card & get a free cup of coffee!
Too noisy? Get a pound of coffee to go! :)
Glad you have a no gun sign. I feel safe, since anyone wanting to use a gun illegally inside ur business will read the sign and not enter. Glad ur sign says guns so I can being other deadly weps in.
Excellent and well-cared for coffee. Be prepared to wait extra long, they don't use more than one head on the espresso machine at a time.
Pumpkin cranberry muffins -- to DIE for!
Chorizo Burrito is to die for!!!
I love the Ham & Rocket #9 sandwich. The coffee is pretty good too. They roast it right there.
Best Coffee and Atmosphere!
Alterra opened its first café in 1993, and has since expanded to 12 locations serving its signature thick and creamy espresso.
