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...

Nosh Fox Valley’s Community Spotlight

Nosh Fox Valley has been blessed over the last few months that we have existed. Originally Nosh Fox Valley was started to give a little extra love and attention to restaurants that needed it as we braved through this pandemic. Our blog has been very privileged to build great relationships with many different establishments, all which we consider our friends.

We know we have made an impact for many of the businesses we have featured on this blog.  We have found however that many of our friends have made an even bigger impact on our community. The Staff of Nosh Fox Valley’s would like to say thank you to these establishments.

Throughout the year Nosh Fox Valley’s Community Spotlight will feature the offerings of a local business and highlight the impact they have made on our community. With the current climate of the world, our staff felt that giving attention to heartwarming stories was something our community needed. There are many stories to share right here in the Fox Valley.  If you would like to nominate a business please visit the bottom of our page.

Special thank you to our blogger, Robin who inspired this project.

Thank you to the restaurants and food industry establishments that have gone above and beyond to bless our community. The Fox Valley would not be as strong as it is without leaders like yourselves.

ZaRonis A Macaroni And Pizza Pub

When I brought up the first ideas of our community project to our blogger Robin. Her immediate reaction was that Zaronis needed to be included. Luckily Jenn who covers Oshkosh jumped at the oppurtunity to provide us with a review of a recent takeout order and interviewed Captain Zaroni himself on the impact he’s had on our community.

Thank you, Captian Zaroni and your team with blessing our community with delicous eats, and being a real life super hero to our community.

Basil Café

Basil Café has done a lot for our community. Community being the keyword as they support everyone’s voice, whether it be someone of a different ethnicity or someone from the LGBTQ community. They also have contributed and been recongized for their involvment in Planned Parenthood, and Harbor House. 

To say they know the meaning of community is an understatement.

Thank you Basil Cafe, and Larry for contributing to our community and making sure to all inclusive in everything you do!

Rodney’s Cafe

Like many of our readers, our blogger Jenn was directly affected by loss of job during the pandemic. One restaurant owner has made it a mission to help those that are struggling from job loss, Rodney from Rodney’s Cafe. Each week he prepares hundreds of meals, along with generous donations from our community, to feed those that have suffered a job loss due to COVID.

Thank you Rodney for helping to feed and keep our community going in such a challenging time. You truly emptimize the meaning of being “in this togehter”!
