Located on the ground floor of Tenney Plaza, Colectivo on the Square was our very first cafe in the Madison area. The cafe sits at the corner of Pinckney & Main amid the hustle and bustle of our state capital and community events like Concerts on the Square and the Dane County Farmers Market. Tenney Plaza is a beautiful historic Art Deco building, constructed in 1930 and claiming the title of Wisconsin’s first steel frame high-rise. The entry and back room feature custom murals painted by artist Jeff Darrow. Serving coffee, tea, espresso, smoothies, as well as a full menu of all-day breakfast, soups, and sandwiches.
This cafe features a sunny interior decked out in colorful repurposed materials - be sure to check out our giant mixing bowl planters! Fully operable garage doors open to face Milwaukee Ave., one of Chicago’s most popular cycling routes.
