Glensheen Mansion's Coffee Bar.

Glensheen Mansion, the historic 39-room estate on Lake Superior, now has a coffee shop.

Glensheen's new Coffee Bar will open Monday, June 21, according to a news release. For sale will be coffee from Duluth Coffee Company, and donuts from the locally owned family bakery Johnson's Bakery. Classic glazed, chocolate, and sugar donuts will be $1 apiece.

Coffee Bar is located in the garage space of the estate's Carriage House.

The idea, the news release explains, came from a donor who was at Glensheen for a morning meeting, "enjoying a cup of coffee on the shore of Lake Superior and remarked something along the lines of 'Wouldn’t this be cool for guests to experience too?'"

Glensheen provided some photos of the coffee and donuts and ... we'll be honest, it was hard to pick just one to share. So feast your eyes on a gallery of hot coffee and donuts on display at the estate.
