North Perk’s Cafe Miel

Bottoms Up
By Anna Faller | July 3, 2021

On the hunt for a balanced morning buzz? Christine at North Perk Coffee in downtown Petoskey has you covered. This community coffee shop’s winning combination of exceptional brews and friendly baristas has made it a favorite among locals since 2013. Featuring both medium and dark-roast batches courtesy of sister shop, Lake Charlevoix Coffee Company, North Perk prides itself on its selection of sustainably sourced, organic beans and fresh-baked treats from Michigan businesses. But believe you us, the real labor of love is the Cafe Miel. Featuring a base of fresh-pulled espresso — one, two, or even three shots — the Cafe Miel fires up your brain without burning your belly, thanks to a just-right amount of measured honey and your choice of textured milk. Topped with a fun, foamy layer and a sprinkle of cinnamon, this creamy kickstart is silky and smooth whether served iced or hot and is available in 12 to 20-ounce sizes ($3.75–$4.53). Find it at North Perk Coffee, 308 Howard St. (231) 753-2053
