I read about the food being bland, we had the opposite with the tomato soup. My daughter and I love tomato soup, and where disappointed that the soup had so much basil that it over-powered the taste. We had been here about 1 year ago...More

The sandwiches are made with a variety of real Wisconsin cheeses. I tried the Dagwood and have to admit that it was the best sandwich I have ever tasted. I wish I lived closer because I would be a regular!

I can't believe I haven't seen this place before. It's only 1/2 block from my walking radius and my radar should have picked it up. We were referred by a friend. Interior is modern and old-fashioned with cool blues and white wainscoting on the walls....More
