Java Moose, Grand Marais, MN

"Where everybody knows your name" or in our case at Java Moose, "where the baristas know your coffee drink." Perfectly situated in downtown Grand Marais, MN, we welcome each customer as an old friend. Once you are part of the Java Moose family, you will always be family. We are open year around at 218 W. Hwy 61. We proudly brew Alakef Coffee and have been doing so for 22 years. We have many specialty coffee beverages, including a Maple Latte made with local maple syrup! We also serve Positively 3rd Street Thunder cookies and Gluten Free Chocolate Chip cookies. We make scones and muffin tops daily, serve soup and chili along with sandwiches "the way grandma made them." Seasonally (Memorial Day-Labor Day) we are also located on the harbor at the end of the Lake Superior Trading Post (another must stop). Grab an Adirondack chair and enjoy the view and the coffee!

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

We have been a family owned business since its inception in 1992. Marty and Lisa Cassellius were the original owners and loved and nurtured it until 1999. Ann and Gary Jorgenson purchased the outdoor location in the Fall of 1999 and opened our current indoor location in 2002. You will also see their two daughters (and many grandchildren) working behind the counters.

Pet Friendly Notes

Although we love pets, our health inspector does not. Therefore we kindly ask you to keep your friends of the four-legged variety out of doors.


Java Moose is located in beautiful downtown Grand Marais, MN. With sweeping views of Lake Superior, you are sure to feel refreshed. As a family run business, we will welcome you with open arms at Java Moose and always treat you like family. We take our coffee very seriously, and have been proudly caffeinating the county for 22 years. We also have an outdoor location right on the harbor next to the Lake Superior Trading Post (another amazing establishment) open Memorial Day to Labor Day.
