The Colectivo Coffee on Prospect Avenue Is Coming Back

And the menu is full of fall favorites.

It’s been close to nine months since the Colectivo Coffee on the East Side (2211 N. Prospect Ave.) closed, and the good news, for fans of that location, is that it’ll be back in action starting Monday, Oct. 4. The café will temporarily operate with reduced hours. They are: daily 7 a.m.-2 p.m.

Note for those wishing to linger: Both indoor and outdoor seating will be available.



What’s Brew City’s best? We’ve picked 16 of our favorite Milwaukee craft beers for a March Madness-style tournament, but it’s up to you to pick the winner! Will it be bright and hoppy? Dark and malty? A zippy lager? Every one is worthy of the title; who will claim the sudsy crown?

Along with the café’s assortment of coffee and tea drinks, smoothies and baked goods, they’ve added some seasonal items. Fall bevs include the PSFL (Pumpkin Spice Fluff Latte), maple oat-latte and spiced apple cider. On the bakery side, there’s a pumpkin maple scone, cranberry almond scone and chai snickerdoodle, all created by Colectivo’s Troubadour Bakery.

In other Prospect Avenue news, the live music space, The Back Room @ Colectivo, which had also been closed, began hosting live music performances, in partnership with Pabst Theater, this past summer.
