Driftless Harvest is located at 106 W. Center St., in downtown Monona. The Davies family renovated the building over seven months, turning the once-vacant space into a charming coffee shop.

“It’s helped bring the community together," said Mel Crook, who works at Driftless Harvest with her parents. "I’ve been meeting a lot of the older folks who come in, and they are all really sweet."

Specialty lemonades are one of the signature drinks at Driftless Harvest in Monona.
