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

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...

New Moon Cafe in downtown Oshkosh

One of the first things I did when I moved to Oshkosh was visit the Oshkosh Farmers Market. While exploring the farmers market, I discovered New Moon Cafe, a local coffee shop in Oshkosh.

New Moon Cafe was started by co-founders and brothers Aaron and Jason. The building itself is rumored to be haunted! They roast their own coffee for the cafe twice a week. In addition to hand-crafted drinks, they also offer options for food, bakery items, craft beers and more. They try to source everything from Wisconsin to help local businesses and support independent shops. 

New Moon Cafe offers coffee, baked goods, sandwiches and more

New Moon offers hand-crafted beverages like hot chocolate or lattes, or if you prefer regular coffee, they offer that too. One of my favorite drinks is the Headless Horseman Latte. The name itself made me want to get it; I love October and all the spooky aesthetic that goes with it! The latte has pumpkin spice and white chocolate, which tasted amazing and I never thought about that flavor combination before. I also like their iced lattes during the summer. As mentioned above, they roast their own coffee in-house, ranging from light roast to dark roast. You can even purchase whole bean coffee or pre-ground coffee to enjoy New Moon Cafe at home! 

I recently ordered a breakfast bagel sandwich with egg and cheese. Not the fanciest thing on the menu but it was delicious. They have options for breakfast and lunch, and breakfast is served late in case you want brunch, or if you’re like me, are always open to having breakfast food any time of the day. If you are vegetarian or vegan, don’t fret: they clearly mark on their menu what options are vegetarian/vegan friendly! There is also a daily sandwich special for $8.25 that includes a cup of soup.

There are numerous plants and artwork around New Moon Cafe

While seating is currently closed inside, the space looks so inviting. They offer gallery space on their walls for local artists, and there’s a large collection of indoor plants. There’s also wi-fi in case you choose to work from New Moon. New Moon also hosts live events like open mic nights, live bands and poetry readings. When the time comes that they open their seating again, I know I will be hanging out more at New Moon Cafe.
