Our Story

The Nordic Coffee House is a delightful European café market nestled in the heart of downtown Menahga on Hwy 71. We take pride in our rich heritage and the warmth of our community, offering a diverse array of delectable treats and European treasures.

Housed in the second oldest building in town, which once served as the beloved Olson Feed Store, our coffee house exudes history and charm. As you step through our doors, you’ll be greeted by the essence of yesteryears, with old photographs adorning the walls and a deep sense of connection to the Menahga of days gone by. It’s a place where the past meets the present, and memories are woven into the very fabric of our establishment.

Nordic Coffee House

Only the Best

Fresh Ingredients, Tasty Coffee

At Nordic Coffee House, we’re passionate about serving you the finest, handcrafted offerings. We take our inspiration from the European tradition of savoring the simple pleasures in life. From the moment you step in, the aroma of freshly brewed, organic, fair-trade coffee from local roasters from around Minnesota will envelop you. Our baristas pour their heart and soul into every cup, ensuring a perfect espresso or coffee every time.

We now are proudly serving Steven Smith Teamaker Teas!

If you are looking for something different to try, we have new tea lattes available.

Caramel Macchiato

A Caramel Macchiato is a delightful fusion of bold espresso, velvety steamed milk, luscious vanilla syrup, and rich caramel sauce. This indulgent beverage has a harmonious balance of strong coffee notes, sweet vanilla undertones, and a decadent caramel finish.

Nordic Warmer

A Nordic Warmer is a comforting and aromatic creation that encapsulates the serene beauty of the Nordic region. It combines the earthy allure of lavender syrup, the purity of organic honey, the robust essence of espresso, and the velvety smoothness of steamed oat milk.


This enchanting beverage starts with a robust shot of espresso and carefully combines luscious white chocolate sauce and Irish cream syrup that is reminiscent of cozy Irish evenings. It is then crowned with a cloud of real whipped cream and a chocolate grasshopper that perches atop this creation.

Sparkling Boba

Indulge in a sparkling boba sensation like no other with our exhilarating medley of Sunrise, Daisy, Lemon Berry, and Strawberry Shortcake flavors, each taking your taste buds on a delightful journey. But that’s not all – it’s adorned with tantalizing fruit flavor-bursting boba beads that pop with every bite and crowned with a generous dollop of real whipped cream.

Lotus Energy

Unleash a burst of vibrant, electrifying flavors with our Lotus Energy Drink. We’ve taken inspiration from the iconic sweetness of Starburst, the sun-kissed allure of Peach Blush, the exotic vibes of Tropical Dream, the bold flavors of Jolly Rancher, and the refreshing essence of Ocean Mist.


Indulge in the pure essence of ripe, sun-kissed fruits with our collection of fresh smoothies that celebrate nature’s bounty. Tantalizing flavors include Strawberry, Strawberry-Banana, Wildberry, Mango,  and Peach.
