GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - A Green Bay coffee shop has been named one of the best in the United States, according to Tasting Table.

Kavarna Coffeehouse, 143 N Broadway, was chosen to represent Wisconsin in Tasting Table’s ranking.

“This shop started roasting its own beans in 2020, but even before that served as a community gathering place in this city of only 104,000. The shop is also a great steward of the environment, focusing on sustainable sourcing. It’s also one of the best spots in Green Bay to find vegetarian and vegan food, not an easy feat when you’re in the heart of America’s Dairyland,” reads the review.

Kavarna owner Mike Hastreiter reacted to the news Thursday and highlighted the recognition for being a gathering spot for many years. He said it’s a role Kavarna doesn’t take lightly. “It’s, you know, really embracing your community. And you really have to view it as not as customers or guests, it’s like the people coming to your establishment make up a fundamental part of what you’re doing. And that has to be recognized and that has to be considered in every decision that you make.”
