We believe Eating well brings joy to life.

I think we can agree that conversations are best had in comfortable spaces, with a great beverage, wholesome food, and a connection with others about our passions, recalling our experiences with a brilliantly hazy nostalgia. These things inspire us. Our space is a place to break free from the madness of daily life and laugh about the absurdity of it all. Breakaway Cafe embodies the idea of slowing down time, taking a breath, and enjoying the moment. So, as you ride in from the trail, stop in and share your story from around the Great Lakes or beyond. Because at Breakaway Cafe, we want you to feel like it's a second home. 

Breakaway Cafe & Coffee Bar is located in beautiful Traverse City, Michigan.

 The journey to now.

Too rarely do the skies part and stars align allowing us to take a huge leap of faith. For Breanne Fortuna and her husband, Craig, it happened in May of 2016, and the pursuit of creating a haven around local food, community and cycling was born — with Breakaway Cafe. Following a wayward path back to her passion for food, Breanne broke away from the status quo, bringing over ten years' experience from places like Cavallino Cafe, Whole Foods, and Peninsula Market. With longterm goals of service to the community, fostering progressive and positive change, and advocating for our beautiful region, Breakaway Cafe exists to be a fueling station, outdoor advocacy venue, and cozy third space for hanging out.
