Stick with Sticky Fingers

Stick with Sticky Fingers

As a baker myself, I make a point to try all the local bakeries. I heard from several people that a new bakery was opening in Kaukauna, and as soon as they posted their menu, I couldn’t wait to try it. Right in the heart of downtown Kaukauna, Sticky Fingers opened in...

Do Not Attempt to Dodge this Caribbean Taste

Do Not Attempt to Dodge this Caribbean Taste

Tuesday. What is there to do on a Tuesday? Hardly anything, ever, really. Tuesday falls too early in the week and yet is so far removed from the weekend. Sometimes it is just another Monday masquerading as a Tuesday. 313 Dodge might just be what you are looking for....

Wisconsin Staples at Gabe’s Wisconsin Kitchen and Tavern

As I’m getting used to living in Wisconsin, I’m discovering some of the Wisconsin staples when it comes to food and spirits. I knew about Spotted Cow and cheese curds before I moved to Wisconsin, but that was about it. Fortunately, Gabe’s Wisconsin Kitchen and Tavern...

Bushels of Fun at Bauer’s Apple Shed

Bushels of Fun at Bauer’s Apple Shed

As soon as the leaves begin to change, even ever so slightly, so does my weekly menu. When the shades of green turn to red and orange, my refrigerator, once full of peaches, quickly becomes home to all things apple. Taking a trip to a local apple orchard is my...

Faris Popcorn is Poppin’

Faris Popcorn is Poppin’

When I previously lived in Illinois, I became familiar with the popcorn chain “Garrett Popcorn.” One of my favorites mixes was their Garrett Mix, their world famous cheddar and caramel corn mix. When I moved to Wisconsin, I wasn’t sure if I would find a popcorn...

A family trip down to Menominee Park in Oshkosh a couple of weekends ago gave us the opportunity to uncover a hidden gem, Pilora’s Cafe in Oshkosh! Boasting of deli cuisine and coffee, a quick Google search yielded some yummy looking photos of a variety of different sandwiches and drinks, so we figured we’d give it a try.

The cafe’s vibe was bright and positive, with windows all around and friendly wait-staff, it was a place that felt great to walk into! They were very conscious of face coverings and social distancing guidelines, we felt safe and sanitary while dining-in.

The menus offered a variety of different options, from soups to salads to wraps to sandwiches. As many coffee shops don’t have a great food selection, I was happy to have some options available.

I ultimately decided to feast on the Philly Beef sandwich, which came with a beer and cheese soup with cornbread and cheesy potatoes (more on those in a minute). The sandwich would remind you of a patty melt with roast beef and roasted peppers, it was cheesy, greasy, and delicious! The soup was amazing, and those cheesy potatoes were probably the best I ever had. We even overheard the people next to us just order a giant plate of them, I can understand why! They were super cheesy and just crispy enough to be delicious.

My wife decided on the Avocado Turkey wrap, which featured spring greens, turkey, avocado, red onions, tomato ranch, and cheddar on a toasted multigrain tortilla. It also came with homemade-style chips and was a delicious choice! (I got to try a couple bites.) It was definitely enough food to fill us up and give us some leftovers to take home, and certainly more than I was expecting when we walked into a cafe.

The next time you’re in Oshkosh and looking for a great new place to try, I definitely recommend Pilora’s Cafe. We certainly loved it, and it may just become a new staple of ours whenever we’re in the area! There was also a great patio-area outside the restaurant with a few bushes for some scenic greenery if you prefer to dine outside!
