I just love it because it's a real coffee shop, not just another chain. Great atmosphere, good food. I love leaving books on the Bookcrossing book shelf as well.

One of my favorite coffee shops around. I've enjoyed a lot of great cups of coffee, sandwiches, and conversations here over the years.

Would stop at Svens more often if I lived in the area. Like the new downtown location. Good for my husband. Within walking distance of his office. I will say that I had a latte and a rice krispie bar and the bar was fairly old. I ate it but didn't particularly enjoy it. The latte was great though. Like that you have gluten free choices for your sandwiches, breakfasts, etc. as well.

Comfortable atmosphere. FANTASTIC bakery selection. Very good coffee drinks and smoothies. I appreciate that it's a private business too, and not a chain.

Sven's is a great cafe! Since moving to Bay View over a year ago, I have always liked going to Sven's for coffee or lunch and really enjoy the shop's decor and outdoor patio. Marcus who is frequently working when I stop by, is a great guy and the whole staff is extrememely friendly. Not to mention that their coffee is delicious and is always a great staple to the South Shore Farmer's Market! Thanks Sven's!!!

From Our Editors

The owners of Sven's Café pride themselves on being ahead of their time—when Steve Goretzko and his business partner George Voglis began roasting in 1989, they were among the first in Wisconsin to specialize in fair-trade and organic coffee. After Sven’s Organic Coffee Company began to take off, Goretzko decided to open Sven’s Café in Bay View; eventually, he added another location in downtown Milwaukee.

Goretzko hails from Berlin, and Sven’s Café has a decidedly European feel; baristas use Probot and Gothot German roasters to brew fresh java, for example. Sven’s coffee beans hail from the world over, harvested in far-flung locales including Africa, Indonesia, South America, Hawaii, and the moon. The café also serves breakfast sandwiches, paninis, salads, and soups.
