Our Story

Sassafras has been serving great coffee and tasty treats to the Green Lake area since 2014. Proud owner Carrie Nolen found the inspiration to open her own coffee shop when discussing the closing of another local shop 10 years ago. Carrie has a background in nursing and after taking some time off to care for her daughter, she wasn’t interested in returning to the healthcare industry. When the time came for her daughter to attend school, she turned her attention towards creating Sassafras, her very own coffee shop.

Here as Sassafras, we pride ourselves in creating a friendly and welcoming environment for our community members to enjoy. Our excellent customer service ensures our customers can always rely on us for morning and mid-day coffee, as well as tasty treats. Our reliable and delicious menu items keep loyal customers coming back, which is exactly why we serve Colectivo Coffee and Boar’s Head meats and cheeses. On Saturday mornings, we even serve Amish Donuts to satisfy your pastry cravings.

Our specialties include coffee, specialty drinks, and real fruit smoothies. We have baked goods, breakfast foods, various morning treats, and fresh lunches available. Made from scratch bakery items include muffins, scones, cakes, and cookies, and we have salads, fruit, and other quick eats for lunch. Drink options include coffee, as well as chai tea, green tea, and other iced and hot teas, as well as seasonal refreshments.

Come in and enjoy our delicious menu items, drinks and homemade pastries! We look forward to serving you.
