Inspiration isn’t found. It’s created.

It’s sprouted, nurtured, curated and served. It’s in the bricks of an antique building, a flour-caked apron, the clink of hot soup crocks, the drip of fresh espresso. It’s in the handshakes between farmers, artisans, baristas and customers. Timshel Café is built on inspiration. Everything from the floorboards to the French pastries, from the local produce to the pour-over coffee, reflects a choice to dig deep into what ignites ours senses and inspires our minds.

Design as fresh as our coffee—and as refreshing.

At the heart of downtown Neenah, Timshel is a place to get to the heart of things—big projects, small moments, everyday connections. Soft lighting and a lively din give way to electric moments. The café’s urban, pared-back design bares the bones of a historic building, creating an open space for conversations that will build the future.

Every dish a local expression.

The ingredients for culinary creativity are growing all around us. Timshel is committed to supporting Wisconsin growers and artisans with every handmade menu item we serve. Behind each sandwich, quiche, soup, or smoothie are the hardworking hands of a neighbor and a familiar face.

For the love of French pastries.

Croissants flake effortlessly through diligence. There’s commitment in the crumb of a canelé. Timshel’s pastry chefs knead hours, often days, into our French baked goods, served fresh every morning. That’s love—we know you’ll love them too.

A serious commitment to coffee.

Every bean presents a world of flavors and aromas. Let us coax them out in your next cup, awaken your senses and turn routine into exploration. Whether you come for the espresso, the Kalita Wave®, the AeroPress®—or maybe our beloved EK43 grinder—you’ll find depth and nuance in our beans from Kickapoo Coffee Roasters, another Wisconsin provider.
