My Favorite Middleton Coffee Shop – Barriques!

Today, I wanted to write about my favorite Middleton, WI coffee shop (and where I write a majority of these blog posts)… Barriques!

Barriques is located just off University Avenue at in the Cayuga Court of Middleton, Wisconsin.


The location is perfect! It’s one of the main reasons why I chose this coffee shop, and is where I do most of my “out of the office” business-work. It’s directly off University Avenue and the beltline for easy access. It’s also directly across the street from the Middleton Post Office where I submit our mailers for delivery.

Barriques, in Middleton, was opened in May of 2003 and offers a wide selection of wine, spirits and beer as well as a full coffee and espresso bar serving up their delicious drinks. My favorite: Magnum latte w/ skim milk and a raspberry scone. Yummy!

Another advantage of this coffee shop is the free wireless Internet access. This allows you to tap into their network and surf the web (or write blog posts like this one).


Here is how their website states it:

Each Barriques location is a bit different than the others and yet we design all of our cafes to be places that we would like to hang out in. We hope after you visit some of them, you feel this was a good idea. At a very basic level, we want people in our cafes. That may sound dumb for a business to say but there are plenty of ways other similar businesses policies tell you otherwise. We offer free wireless internet access w/o time restrictions and are constantly upgrading our technology and bandwidth to provide a better experience. We don’t herd students, or anyone else for that matter, together so they don’t ‘take up so much room’. Wherever possible we put in bigger tables to let our customers spread out and make as many power outlets available as possible. We are open long hours, because while you may like your coffee at 6:30 in the morning the other guy needs his at 8 o’clock at night. We don’t close for most holidays or if there is bad weather because it is convenient for us, but rather we realize that this is a service business and we are here for the convenience of our customers. We look forward to seeing you at a Barriques location near you sometime soon.

I highly suggest visiting Barriques in Middleton, or contacting them at 608-824-9463. Tell them ‘Ron the Realtor’ sent you! :)
