    An iced cold brew coffee is a perfect pick-me-up for making the rounds at the Farmers Market. Try it black before adding cream and sugar. It’s delicious just the way it comes.

    Awesome coffee, and great place to grab a breakfast/lunch sandwich... Just don't expect to stick around: it gets crowded!

    This place is awesome! It's open to the outside, one barrel is on tap, and they don't have just "coffee shop food"-- real, quality food! Need I say more?

    So excited Alterra's in Madison now! Best place to study, catch up with friends, relax and truly enjoy the best coffee EVER! Love :-)

    Great in the spring/summer when they open up the front wall onto the square enjoy it with a great iced espresso brew in hand.

    Indoor seating can be really awkward, but I LOVE their chai lattes, so it's worth it. Muffins and breakfast dishes are really good too.

    A really interesting idea. A lot of Latin American influence, and really cozy. There are lots of souvenirs (bottles, shirts, coffee bags...).

    I love that they play the "So long, farewell song" when they almost makes up for the fact that they close at 9!

    The Bavarian pretzels are the best pretzels I've had and you can't go wrong with any of their coffee options.

    Very very busy, like hard to get a table-busy between 8 and noon most days. Good coffee and location is ace, of course.

    Spend the extra money and order a pour-over coffee from the brew bar. You won't regret it!

    Excellent coffee and great location. Grab a seat outside if you're lucky enough to find one.

    Free wi-fi & plenty of outlets! ... Only problem: it's too popular, and therefore hard to find a seat sometimes.

    A good selection of single origin coffee in cute cups

    They discourage ice tea drinkers. They don't provide free or discounted refills, but they do for coffee. #unequal

    Stock up on coffee here, there's probably not much good coffee elsewhere if you are going out of Madison or Milwaukee.

    The fact that the WiFi drops and requires you to agree to the terms of service every hour is downright hostile.

    Alterra wouldn't make you pay for a new iced tea after a bee drowned in it while sitting at the store :(
