Lakefront views | Live music Sundays | Daily happy hour 5 till 6


You’ve discovered ALCHEMY.

The smell of daily fresh baking, the aroma of organic fair trade coffee, mingled with the buzz of people just like you … transforming their day into something special.


The destination for locals and visitors alike to refuel the body, mind, and soul …

  • Join us for breakfast, fresh baking and quality coffee.
  • Stay for a meeting, or a lazy lakefront lunch

We open the doors at 8am and we’re here for you until late into the evening.
