First time trying out this spot for coffee and was not disappointed. The mint mocha was a perfect blend and I loved that it... wasn't too sugary. The barista was very nice and informative. Read more

Coffee was good, the coffee person messed up the order and also corrected us on how to say "caramel". But otherwise, good place... and the only place to get coffee in town. I liked the outdoor seating. Read more

On my leisurely trip up the coast of Lake Michigan, I stopped in the town of Manistee. After wandering around town I stepped... into the Outpost for a caffeinated beverage. The Outpost is a lifestyle clothing store with a full coffee bar as an addedfeature. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff is friendly and helpful. They have a well-representative selection of locallyroasted direct trade coffee and locally grown and blended organic tea. I appreciate the emphasis on local. So many townsdeplete themselves by patronizing chains that send profits elsewhere. I'd drink bad local coffee before I'd drink chaincoffee. Fortunately, this was not the case at the Outpost. Laina was my barista. She was pleasant, but a little curious whenI asked if she could make a good Americano. Even though the drink is simple, many seem to muck it up by over-diluting. Iordered a double Americano - she put two shots of espresso and filled the 12 oz. cup not quite full. She nailed it. I admiredthe caramel crema that formed on the top - just as it should - and inhaled the rich aroma. Customers were browsing the clothingselection, but I was ready to sit and ponder stuff while I sipped on this exquisite brew. There are several high-top tables inthe front of the store, but I opted for the outdoor seating. I like to people watch as I ponder. I always like to admire mycoffee before I taste it - let the anticipation build. That first sip was exactly as I hoped it would be. Friends, if you'rein Manistee and want a delicious coffee or tea - and support a local business - stop by The Outpost. You won't be disappointed. Read more

Staff was kind and hard-working, but seemed like they could have communicated a bit more with each other. I ordered an Iced... Latte with almond milk and light caramel, and the caramel part seemed to be missed when transferring my order between employees.That being said, the latte was still good, and the espresso taste was very smooth. Also wish they had more milk alternativeoptions. Did not do any clothes shopping, just some looking around. Clothing seemed nice, although pretty pricey, but what canyou expect in a tourist town. Read more
