This was such a fun place to spend a few hours of our afternoon!! We had a great time playing a few games as we sipped our coffee to warm up and then ate dinner. I would love to see more of these types of stores around my own town, but we will definitely be back here next time we’re in Sturgeon Bay!They have a massive amount of board games and accessories for buying and a large shelf of games you can try out.The staff was very friendly and welcoming! The food was also very tasty and the coffee was reasonably priced.Would highly recommend to anybody who likes games!!read more

I love this place! I had the Firehammer sandwich and an iced mocha, and both of them were amazing! They’re the only place i know around here that uses Ghirardelli chocolate for their mochas, instead of a flavored syrup like Torani or Monin, or even *shudders* Hershey’s syrup. You may not think it makes that big a difference, but it’s huge. That sandwich was delicious; I got it on the sprouted grain bread, and it was perfect. A little crispy and spicy and delicious. I also picked up a game while I was there(Here to Slay) which looks really fun and was recommended by the staff. I’ll be back for sure!read more

I just LOVE this place. We stopped today for our first time. The food was amazing, the drinks are delicious (especially the slushies with boba added), the game selection is ginormous, and the merchandise is unique must haves for any gnome/game/squishamellow lover. We will definitely be more

I was very pleased with our visit to The Gnoshery’s. It was crazy to see how fast they turn a drink order around. The Gnoshery staff really have a good system. I couldn’t have been longer than 3 minutes from order to drink in hand.There were a ton of display/sample games to play. The wide variety of games was very impressive. I purchased a couple of items our children seemed they couldn’t live without.The only thing I would improve on would be the bottle neck at the “game register” and tables. There seemed to be a bit of confusion there as a customer.Overall, it was a very wonderful visit. The coffee and cold beverages we ordered were OUTSTANDING!read more

A delightful combination of cafe and game seller, with delicious food, fabulous coffee (much better tasting, generous and priced than most cafes) and packed full of games for all ages. The more than 80 open games to try is a real treasure! Combined, this made our hour’s drive well worth it. We’ll definitely be back!read more

This is a fantastic little board game café that has captured our hearts! Any time we’re in town, we stop for a delicious breakfast (their croissant bread is fantastic) and pick a new game to try. I love being able to try a game before purchasing- and we’ve definitely brought home a few new favorites because of this place! One game we played was out of stock, but the kind and helpful staff ordered the game for us and it was ready for pickup within two business days. Awesome! Highly recommend stopping by here. Great people and great atmosphere. Thank you!read more
