If you’re craving a good ol’ cup of Joe, you’ve come to the right area. Reigning at the top of the Best Café/Coffeehouse list this year is Kahvi Coffee House & Café (3830 Talmadge Road, Eau Claire), who also took first place last year. Kahvi values fair trade coffee and community, and it’s a bright, beautiful space to sit down and sip. SHIFT Cyclery & Coffee Bar (615 Graham Ave., Eau Claire) took second this year with their unique twist on a coffee shop (they also repair bicycles of al kinds) and cool vibes. In third is a long-time staple of the Valley, Acoustic Café (505 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire)! Enjoy your coffee with a hoagie and ice cream at the downtown Eau Claire classic. –Stephanie Nesja
