Indiana Dunes Coffee & Sweets Trail

Grind. Brew. Drip. Pour—Ahh!

A gentle sunrise, a lakeside “sea breeze,” and sand scrunching between your toes may be a typical day in the Indiana Dunes, but this morning you’re looking to escape the daily grind—you’re looking for something a little bit stronger, warmer, and sweeter.

Today, you’re ready for the Indiana Dunes Coffee & Sweets Trail. With locations throughout the Indiana Dunes area, you don’t need to “pour over it” another minute. Sign up and take your shot at some of the best roasters, grinders, and brewers in the area.

To add some cream and sugar to the deal, Indiana Dunes Tourism is offering a FREE Indiana Dunes Coffee & Sweets Trail mug to participants who check in at 7 of the locations. Just bring your completed pass back to the Indiana Dunes Visitor Center for your PRIZE.

Whether you’re looking for a morning cup of joe, a lunchtime “spritzer,” or an after-dinner treat, we’re ready to fill your cup. Start your order in the Indiana Dunes.
