Locally roasted coffee beans, and artisan baked treats made from scratch daily!

Coffee/Tea/Juice, Grocery/Bakery/Deli

The Polka Dot Fox is a family owned coffee and micro-bakery (small kitchen, limited production capacity) on W. 7th Street in Joplin, MO.

We serve locally roasted coffee beans, and artisanal baked goods using best quality ingredients, made fresh from scratch daily. On a daily basis we offer vegan, gluten-free and soy-free products, and 98% of our menu is vegetarian.

On any given day you'll find a selection of fresh baked muffins, cakes, personal-size cheesecakes, cookies, and refrigerated items like Chia superfood pudding or decadent flourless vegan chocolate cake or Rye flour Raw Cacao Nib cake.

We also do weekly specials like fresh-baked croissants on Saturday, Cinnamon buns on Sunday and the "Fox Tot" on Thursdays (organic shredded potatoes with other ingredients in a handheld 'muffin' form... delicious!). Our menu is posted daily on our facebook page.

We aim for all our ingredients to be locally and regionally sourced, and use mostly organic staple ingredients like wheat, sugar, butter, and milk.

Our coffee is fair-trade single-source beans that are roasted by a small business here in Joplin, Flying Crow Coffee. Our pour-overs are simple, clean and use filtered water. Our espresso-based drinks can all be made with alternative milk options (soy, coconut, almond, hemp).

2 of the 3 owners are long-time vegetarian/vegans and all owners are extremely focused on high-quality whole-food ingredients while delivering taste experiences rarely found in small cities. Palate, process, taste, and passion rule our kitchen.
