GPOE on Tour at The Bella Vita in Baraboo, as you approach the historic building you feel as you’re approaching a quaint coffee shop in Tuscany. Originally the Reul house, construction on the veneered Italianate style home began in 1881. It seems as if you are visiting a good friend at their beautiful home, open the door and you will be greeted with a friendly staff and a deli case that boast many wraps, flatbreads, quiche, salads in a jar, yogurt , fruit and more. The coffee options are bountiful and delicious, one of my favorites is the salted caramel latte. We of course have to mention the desserts, flourless cookies, lemon loaf and a morning bun to die for.

One of the Best Coffee Shops in Baraboo

Opening the doors in July 2019 has been eventful for owner Karen Stanley, she hit the ground running and quickly became a local hit for customers looking for a cafe to serve their coffee, breakfast and lunch needs. Great businesses generally succeed with great teamwork, Karen enlisted the help of Taffy Harrison, Linda Goethel and Justin Madson. Their combined expertise in food, baking and coffee has been the cornerstone of getting The Bella Vita up and running.

Local Coffee Shop Space

The Bella Vita has plenty of seating, sit outdoors on the patio or on the side deck, there is indoor seating to gather with your friends or sit alone and get some work done. If you want to play some games or have a small party such as a bridal shower they have an upstairs area available for about 30 people.  Greatest Place on Earth will have our truck on site for you to shop all the GPOE goods, including our newest Blue and Gold Shirts and dog bandanas.
