Colectivo has officially reopened their cafe inside the U.S. Bank Center at 777 E. Wisconsin Ave.

The cafe, which opened in 2000 as a kiosk and was transformed into a full cafe in 2015, offers a full menu of coffee, pastries, lunch and all-day breakfast.

It’s a milestone for the local coffee roaster, marking the reopening of its final cafe following the mass closures during 2020.

Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish. She’s had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book “Milwaukee Food.” Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club. 

When she’s not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you’ll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
