Sophisticated, worldly bistro and bar at the north end of Sheboygan's famed 8th Street. Internet access and good coffee during the day, then transitioning to more elaborate menu options at night. Occasional live music as well.
This is the gem no one seems to have discovered yet. As someone that lived in China, I've gotten very picky about Asian/American restaurants, but this one is great! - I guess no one really did discover it. In less than 6 months it went out of business :(
Favorite Dish: My favorite item is the bubble tea. Their egg rolls are great, and cheap enough that when I was supposed to bring a pot-luck dish, I brought a pile of these instead.
This coffee shop has a great atmosphere, a large space full of couches and bicycles. There is a sandwich menu too with gourmet breads and piles of veggies on the sandwiches. Very comfortable to spend a long time in. Check out the bulk foods store in the back, or come during a concert.
If you are looking for a lite mid-day meal in Sheboygan, the ArtCafe at the Kohler arts center is a good choice. They have a very good selection of tasty unusual soups and salads and pitas. And in the warm months, you can eat outside on a delicious little patio!
Favorite Dish: My curry vegetable soup was a winner!
I read about this restaurant, so I stopped in. I went to the one on Greele. It's a small place, with a counter.
Ordered a single brat sandwich. She asked if I want anything on it. I didn't want to offend by saying ketchup, so said nothing, The waitress said, you want butter on it, right?". I said 'yes'.
Tasty. not in casing, so it's less fatty than most of them, and was maybe the best I've had since my grandfather went to the German butchers in Milwaukee.
A double brat sandwich will set you back $3.85. Cheap at double the price.
I love the idea of this place: a small restaurant and market emphasizing local foods grown naturally or organically from small nearby producers, emphasing quality and freshness. They have a deli counter downstairs, a decent small market, a bakery with breads and sweets, a selection of interesting wines and beers - and a full service restaurant upstairs in the loft area. I hope that Sheboygan is ready for this place!
I also hope that the restaurant is able to keep a high level of quality. I have to admit that I was somewhat disappointed with my lunch here, though. I had a vegetarian quiche that was quite good, and a salad that I really should have sent back. The vinagrette dressing was disgustingly SALTY. Really, I should have asked for something else - but I felt bad for my server, who was slammed with an 8-top at the same time that I came in, and who was struggling to carry the food up a long staircase from the kitchen.
Wonderful food - our favorite was the pecan crusted walleye! Appetizers were great, service was wonderful. If you're lucky enough to meet her, be sure to say hello to Mama D - a waitress and bartender with a true gift for making you feel like you're home!
Favorite Dish: Pecan Crusted Walleye - perfectly prepared!
