A feat of Wisconsin Dells is that they assume everyone is running from place to place on vacation and forget that rare crowd of those who want to relax, take a deep breath in a beautiful space and maybe have a cup of coffee too. With the following list, we bring you the best places to slow down in the Wisconsin Dells area.
Bella Goose – Wisconsin Dells
Bella Goose Coffee House is a shop on a mission; fighting human trafficking in southeast Asian countries by selling their hand-roasted beans in the United States. With two foreign coffee shoppes thus far employing women stepping out of the sex trade, the idea was birthed with the idea of coffee building community with kind, consistent service and a cup of coffee that sells itself. This place is one in a million.
Secondary location: Bella Goose Roastery
Locations in Chaing Mai, Thailand | Angeles City, Phillippines | Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin
