Bean + Vine

bean + vine is our coffee and wine bar located near the lobby of The Ridge Hotel. If you are looking for a great cup of java in the morning, bean + vine Coffee Bar will be your go to place. We not only serve Colectivo and other specialty coffees that will appease even the most selective palates, but also a variety of scrumptious breakfast items that are sure to get you out of bed in the morning.

In the afternoon, bean + vine is our wine bar and bistro that serves up not only some fantastic wines from Wisconsin wineries, but fine wines from around the world. Not sure what type of wine to order? Try one of our wine flights to get a feel for the types of wines that are out there. Once you find your perfect wine, try pairing it with one of bean + vine’s delicious menu items to bring out the flavor of not only the wine, but your food as well!
