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...

Tucked away by the Fox River, Tempest Coffee Collective has a relaxing atmosphere. Inside you will find artwork on the walls and plants scattered around to create the perfect Instagram post aesthetic. During the warmer months, the patio is open so you can enjoy the fresh air while munching on your food. 

I have been coming to Tempest for a few years now and this has easily become one of my favorite coffee shops to work from. All the staff is friendly and easy to talk to. They keep the space lively with Indie music often playing in the background. 

Near the register, there is often a variety of pastries from Thunderbird Bakery to choose from with unique flavors. One of my favorites is the Earl Grey Scone. Some menu recommendations I have are the Lox & Rye which is Violet Rye, house-cured salmon, soft boiled egg, mustard-dill sauce and shaved red onion or the Dixie Dawn which is a buttermilk waffle sandwich with a fried egg, bacon and aged white cheddar.

Tempest’s coffee is sourced from Washington-based Olympia Coffee Roasting Co., which is a certified B Corporation company. Try the Lavender Honey Latte or the Lava Salt Latte if you want to add a little sweetness to your day. The pour-overs are always my go-to item on the coffee menu.
