Espresso bar & Sandwich Cafe

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice

The Weather Center Cafe is a charming coffee shop located on the shore of Lake Michigan in the Riverfront Plaza. They serve an array of vegan & vegetarian sandwiches, wraps, and pastries. They also offer soymilk for cappuccinos and lattes, and Alterra coffee beans can be purchased by the pound.
But the best reason to visit The Weather Center is the atmosphere of weather and lake-themed authentic decor, Sheboygan's artists and poets, and warming healthy soup and coffee in the winter.

Nature's Best health food store is in the same Riverfront section as the cafe (they used to be attached, but have since both expanded).

The vegan options basically included a black bean burger and a hummus sandwich. Both were OK. I was hoping for some better options but was glad they had at least those two.

I grew up as an weird kid being welcomed and encouraged to find community at The Weather Center cafe. I was first introduced to hummus, real coffee, and poetry nights when Sheboygan had no other coffeehouses. As an adult having lived in Minneapolis and now in San Francisco, I still crave Weather Center blend coffee and monkey chunk cookies. If you're driving near Sheboygan, stop in for a coffee and you might find yourself there for a few hours, listening to the Weather Channel above, lost in the self-taught art exhibits on the walls or paging through an animal encyclopedia. In summer you can sit or walk through the Harborcentre overlooking the Sheboygan River and Lake Michigan, or watch the snow falling in winter. If you're lucky, you'll get to chat with Teek the surfing owner, his mother the favorite substitute teacher for many Sheboyganites, or with one of the budding cartoonists, poets, and vegan chefs waiting to be discovered who will wait on your table.
