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

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

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’

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...

Caramel Crisp Corner in downtown Oshkosh

If you’re looking for a place to order coffee, cookies, and other sweet treats, you need to visit Caramel Crisp Corner in downtown Oshkosh. I ordered from them during Downtown Oshkosh’s Lunch Bucks event March 29th-April 2nd. 

About Caramel Crisp

It’s hard to picture Oshkosh without Caramel Crisp. Caramel Crisp has been around since 1933. They started off as a tiny popcorn shop and have expanded to offer so much more: coffee, breakfast food, deli-style sandwiches, salads and soup, and plenty of treats to satisfy your sweet tooth. You can find non-food items there like toys, books, and other gifts. 

Ambiance

The phrase “a kid in a candy store” is synonymous with Caramel Crisp. When you walk inside Caramel Crisp, you’re immediately greeted by sweet smells. I felt so cozy when I was inside. For how much they offer in their store, they did a good job with the layout inside. There’s even a section inside for indoor dining or if you want to work remotely. As it gets warmer, they’ll start opening their patio section for outdoor dining. Since I work remote for my 9-5 job, I will make sure to work remotely from Caramel Crisp once it’s safer to eat inside.

Lunch Offerings

Make sure you have napkins whenever you order lunch items from Caramel Crisp, because they are generous with filling their sandwiches. Some of my favorites include: BBQ Pulled Pork, Sloppy Joes, and the Caprese Grilled Cheese. When I ordered recently, I paired my grilled cheese with beer cheese soup and a hot chocolate, which was perfect for a cold day. Caramel Crisp does offer gluten-free bread for an extra price, just remember that food is being prepared in a gluten environment. 

Best Cookies Ever

Caramel Crisp makes it hard to visit and NOT purchase one of their famous cookies. I ordered the following cookies: chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, cake batter, Oreo cheesecake, chocolate pretzel peanut butter, and animal cracker. My fiancé loves the snickerdoodle cookie, while I’m a big fan of the cake batter cookie.

In addition to visiting Caramel Crisp Corner, they offer online ordering for pickup or curbside for their food/drink items.
