Cafe Coco FAQ

What is gluten free?

Gluten is the protein that is found in wheat. Some people are allergic to it, while
others have uncomfortable physical reactions to wheat gluten. “Gluten Free” means that it doesn’t have wheat gluten in it.

Why don’t you sell donuts?

Because we’re a BAKERY not a FRYERY and donuts are fried.

What’s with the Counter Service?

Check our specials & soups, look at a menu, tell the nice people at the counter what you want, and they will get your name and bring your meal to you.

What is Travel Green Wisconsin?

It’s a program of certification of businesses and organizations created
by the Wisconsin Department of Tourism for businesses that go above and beyond to make their business greener. Here at Coco, we not only recycle, but re-use. We compost all our food wastes. Most of our light bulbs are CFLs. Our boiler system also heats our water. We use residual heat from ovens and compressors to heat our building in winter. We buy well over 20,000 lbs of local wheat, honey, berries, produce, and products a year, reducing our carbon footprint.
