Sheboygan County's Creative Resource.

A Fun, Inspiring Environment.

Jake’s Café is a highly collaborative, multi-disciplinary community where creative thinkers can work directly with you to solve business and marketing problems in unique ways. Maybe you need a cool app,  a creative idea or some brand consultation to put a little muscle in your sales and marketing effort.  Or maybe you have a tougher nut to crack, like a corporate culture issue, new product launch or a sales meeting. You might need a team with an architect, interior designer, writer, video producer, composer, sound engineer,  and an intellectual property attorney.  Maybe you need access to a 3D printer.  That’s simply the beauty of working with Jake’s.  It’s a creative community with all the talent and resources you’ll ever need. Right here, in one place.

The Jake’s Café 20,000 square foot creative campus is the brain-child of founder Tryg Jacobson. It was inspired by Richard Florida’s “Rise of the Creative Class” and the award-winning architectural firm of Kubala Washatko. Jake’s Café is comprised of four beautiful landmark buildings in the English, Carpenter Gothic, Greek Revival and Federal Styles. Our amenities include a first class theater, focus group facility, boardroom, conference rooms, kitchens, and lounges in a variety of styles from casual to corporate.  We also offer special weekly events, “Food For Thought” educational luncheons and programming to inspire our members.
