Whether or not the weather outside is frightful, this Peppermint Mocha Latte is always delightful.

We recommend brewing this holiday drink with an Organic Sumatra Coffee (immensely flavorful, highlighted by notes of pepper, and round off to a chocolatey-smooth finish. You may also substitute coffee with decaf.

Ingredients:
2 cups strong-brewed coffee
½ cup milk (or milk substitute)
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 oz. bittersweet chocolate (finely chopped)
2 drops peppermint oil
2 crushed peppermint sticks

Directions:
Combine strong-brewed coffee and ¼ cup of milk (or milk substitute) in a saucepan over low heat. Do not simmer! Blend in sugar, cocoa powder, and bittersweet chocolate and cook for 4 minutes (stirring frequently) until ingredients melt and are fully incorporated. Add in 2 drops of peppermint oil.

Pour hot coffee mixture into 4 - 6 mugs (depending on your ideal serving size). Warm remaining ¼ cup of milk (or milk substitute) in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Using a whisk or Bodum French Press, froth milk until foamy as desired. Top each mug with frothed milk and sprinkle on crushed peppermint sticks for added taste and decor. Serve and enjoy!

"Coffee is 98% water, so the water used to brew the coffee definitely impacts the flavor.

Water that is too soft or distilled with no minerals in it will give the coffee a sour or bitter taste. Alternatively, water that is too hard or tap water that contains contaminants will do the same thing. Coffee experts generally agree that bottled spring water is best. Other acceptable options include activated charcoal/carbon filters on your tap and filtered pitchers.

The temperature of the water is also just as important. Water needs to be hot to draw out the flavors and aromas of the coffee beans. But the temperature of the water impacts the balance of the extraction that occurs. If you use water that is too hot it will over-extract and your coffee will be bitter. If the water isn’t hot enough it will under-extract and you will be left with a weak brew.

The proper temperature range for optimal extraction is 195°F – 205°F. A temperature within this range can be reached by waiting 30 – 45 seconds after your water boils to pour it. "

My family went to Sutton's Bay on vacation this week. After traveling for more than 4hrs we had to use the restroom. We stopped in this shop and asked a worker if they had a restroom we could use. She said yes and pointed out where they were. When we were leaving my sister was eyeing the menu with intent to buy something then a male employee (not sure if he was the manager or not) asked us if we used the bathroom to which I replied yes. He then told us "he could not believe it! There is a public restroom down the road" (I didn't know that or we would've used it) and that we needed to "GET THE F*CK OUT!" He said this in the presence of a minor. He practically pushed us out the door. No where that we saw was there a sign saying that the restroom was not for the public. I could've very well missed it with all the COVID signage. I have never felt less of a person than he made me feel! I was so sick to my stomach I felt like I was going to throw up. But I will absolutely never be visiting this establishment again!!
Hate to post negative comments but this just has to be said. Used to enjoy Bayside. Significant downhill turn in service and attitude of staff. Used to be so friendly and welcoming. Twice this week no smiles or friendliness from staff. Both trips watched other customers have to remind the staff of their orders, this happened approximately five times over the two trips, well over 50% of the folks we saw had to follow-up to make sure they got their order. Not sure if there has been a change in ownership or what has precipitated this downhill trend. With very few places to get good coffee it's sad to see Bayside turn in this direction. Here is hoping they can turn it around. I want to see them succeed but with good service and friendliness the customer is deserve. In addition they've seemed to have taken a turn to the negative with very blatant signs about don't do this don't do that. There are other ways to get the point across.
Freshly baked and onky 2 left!!
I am here til 5pm today cooking and making drinks how ever you desire! My favorite is oat milk sweet matcha latte.

Just stopped in for a quick snack and our barista Ben was amazing! He treated us to a Ginger Turmeric Chai which was delicious. He directed to the best place for lunch in town and in general just made us feel welcome. I highly recommend Bayside Cafe if you are in Suttons Bay.
