Experienced Staff • Delicious Drinks • Tasty Treats 


A mix of old and new, creativity and craft, makes Wm. Van’s more than just a coffee house.  We offer a unique and relaxed atmosphere set in a historic brick Italianate home that makes the space the place to meet and gather, work, wait, read, or relax. 

And it’s more than just the building, it’s the staff and the customers that makes Wm. Van’s a member of the community.  Wm. Van’s is a hub for Springfield’s downtown culture.  We serve as a small event space for community events, activism, awareness, and the arts.  For creatives, students, professionals, and travelers, Wm. Van’s is for all. 

This Local, family-owned cafe serves everything you'd expect and more. Come visit our experienced, friendly, and caring staff that serves up amazing coffees and teas, made-from-scratch pastries, and breakfast and lunch fares with vegan options. Sit in the interior's old world charm or out on the deck with a view of the Capitol and overlooking Springfield's best beer garden. If time is short, Wm. Van's is great for a grab and go food and beverage. 

Wm. Van's Coffee House is located at the corner of Jackson and 7th Street, centered between Lincoln's Home, the Hoogland Center for the Arts, the Bicentennial Plaza, and a local favorite, Obed & Isaac's Microbrewery and Eatery.
