Café Trail in Beloit & Beyond

The Beloit & Beyond Café Trail 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.

*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 2022 Café Trail Q1 gift basket was B. Hill of Machesney Park, IL.
The winner of the 2022 Café Trail Q2 gift basket was T. Rowerdink of Watertown, WI.
The winner of the 2022 Café Trail Q3 gift basket was A. Phillips of Seattle, WA.
The winner of the 2022 Café Trail Q4 gift basket was K. Bowden of Rockton, IL.
Thanks to everyone who has completed the trail this year!

The First Mom & Daughter Team To Complete the Trail in Two Days!

Kelly and Elizabeth decided to complete the trail when Kelly saw the trail announcement on Visit Beloit’s Facebook page.

“Mom thought this would be a fun way to spend some time together before I had to go back to school,” explained Elizabeth. “We both love our city and were excited to taste different flavors around town.”

Here is a full report of their trail experience:

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!
