Nomad Coffee Bar (1668 N. Warren Ave.) – sibling of 26-year-old Nomad World Pub (1401 E. Brady St.) – will make its grand debut this weekend, Nov. 6-7. Like its brother bar, the coffee spot is soccer themed. The two businesses are also next-door neighbors.
Besides offering coffees (including espresso, nitro and cold brew), the new spot will have hot cocoa and a lineup of Rishi teas. You’ll also be able to make your drink boozy by adding one of 25 hand selected liqueurs and spirits. There’s also a morning food program here, with the breakfast menu featuring items like the Chicharito burrito, Maldini panini, PSG Street sammy, Golden Goal waffle (with add-ons such as Nutella, peanut butter, fruit and others). Other menu items include fresh fruit and cold-brew smoothies, a bloody mary bar and mimosas.
“I’m really excited to be bringing coffee back to Nomad after all these years,” said owner Mike Eitel, of Caravan Hospitality, by press release. “The concept sort of evolved as an offshoot of our patio when we had to pivot to outside spaces during COVID when we made the decision to stay open outside all year long. We plan to keep our outdoor areas open through winter but this time, we’ll have a wide variety of hot drinks and a great menu to help keep people warm.”
Nomad Coffee Bar is using Valentine Coffee Company as its featured roaster, and will offer three signature roasts – House Blend and Matchday (both medium roasts) and Nomad Black, a single-origin Sumatran dark roast (which is coming soon). All three of the roasts will be available, by the bag, for home brewing.
If you’re not up for sitting inside, there’ll be spots to hang out on the heated, covered deck, as well as Nomad’s parklet and patio spaces.
The coffee bar will open daily at 7 a.m. and even earlier on the weekends, when there are soccer matches.
For the opening celebration this weekend, NCB will offer some festivities. On Nov. 6-7 (Saturday and Sunday), you can get a free cup of the house coffee (with a download of the NCB app) and listen to live DJs both afternoons. On Saturday, it’s 88Nine Radio Milwaukee DJ Marcus Doucette from 1 p.m.-4 p.m., and on Sunday, DJ Buttersauce is in the house before and during the Packers 3:25 p.m. game.
