Say Hey to GoodThings Café!

Dec 16, 2023

With the opening of GoodThings Café, the GoodThings family of stores is excited to add a little something sweet and a caffeinated pick-me-up to the shopping experience they have been curating in Downtown White Bear Lake.

GoodThings Café opened its doors in October and is already becoming a go-to spot for locals and visitors alike.GoodThings Café is a celebration of coffee, food, and time spent around the table; it is also an exciting way for GoodThings to celebrate 50 years in business. “Providing a destination and gathering place for friends and families to enjoy bakery treats, coffee, and good eats is a passion of ours,” says GoodThings owner, Tyler Conrad. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate 50 years of business. In many ways it’s a culmination of the experience we’ve always worked to create through high quality products and gifts that bring people together.”

Quality ingredients and hand-picked, local fare are at the heart of the GoodThings Café’s carefully curated menu. Stop by for fresh, locally made pastries and donuts, as well as signature lunch options, and healthy to-go soups, sandwiches, and snacks. The premium coffee and espresso drinks are made with freshly roasted coffee beans from a nearby Wisconsin coffee bean roastery and delightful award-winning teas handcrafted locally in the Twin Cities. Delicious mochas, lattes, and rotating seasonal specialty drinks are already bringing locals back for more. Read more about the café by visiting
