Café Trail in Beloit & Beyond

Café Trail in Beloit & Beyond

The Café Trail in Beloit & Beyond is the perfect way to have fun while out and about. And, you will receive a specialty mug! Don’t worry about drinking five beverages back to back—unless you want to—we won’t judge!

Complete the trail, earn a free Café Trail mug, AND be entered to win a gift basket (like the one pictured below) with products from the cafés on the trail.

NEW THIS YEAR:
One winner will be drawn each quarter for a gift basket and you only need to get four of the five stamps on the passport in order to turn it in as completed.

*Contents may vary per quarter.

In addition to prizes, the Café Trail is a great way to try out places you might have never visited before. Whether you’re into chai tea latte, mango berry smoothies, espresso, or green tea, the Beloit area has it!

The winner of the 2021 Café Trail gift basket was J. Sullivan of Belvidere, IL. Thanks to everyone who completed the trail in the first four months!

Final Thoughts:

We have recommended the Café Trail to several people. It was so fun to visit some of the great coffee spots in our area. We also enjoyed trying other items on the menus. We had muffins at DeeDee’s, grilled cheese at Blender Café, pastries at Blue Collar Coffee, and more!

We absolutely recommend the Trail to others, whether you have been to these places before or not, this is something fun that anyone can do!
