There’s a latté to love about SHIFT Cyclery & Coffee Bar (615 Graham Ave., Eau Claire), the café that rode into first this year; from the friendly baristas to the artsy atmosphere, this bicycle repair shop and café offers it all. Eau Claire Downtown Coffee (205 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire) – a hip coffeehouse inside the Lismore Hotel – took second. Bridge Street Brew (114 N. Bridge St., Chippewa Falls) rounds out our list for good reason: They always brew up an assortment of clever coffee drinks! – Natalie Rosenkranz
