Racine Restaurants

  • Off the Beaten Path

    Cliff's is the kind of corner restaurant you used to find all over, but now rarely do. It's a familiy-run operation, with walls full of mounted fish, sports memorabilia, drawings from the children of regulars, and such things. You know it's going to be interesting when you see the building - a white cinder block box, with their name, hours, and...

  • A typical Danish Bakery

    You can find Kringle at many places throughout Racine. On my last time through, I stopped at Bendtsen's Bakery and Cafe. Like many other places, they'll deliver Kringle throughout the USA.

  • Strange Art Deco Bridge

There is a sort of bas-relief seal featuring a bison surrounded by a wreath, upon which rests an eagle. Another faux seal features to overflowing cornucopia flanking a shield with a sheaf of wheat, a plow, and a...
