If you are looking for a unique coffee shop near Menomonee Falls, look no further than just a few minutes away in Lannon. There you will find Quarry Coffee and Cafe, a great spot for enjoying gourmet food and coffee. I first discovered this spot in 2016 after I had my first child. It was a great spot for my childhood best friend and I to meet up, along with the baby, and get a chance to visit. My favorite go-to drink was a sugar-free dark chocolate mocha and my favorite treat was their chocolate chip pumpkin biscotti. There are plenty of other coffee specials and bakery items to choose from as well.
