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

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...

WeatherVane, what’s not to like?

The Fox Cities really has a variety of places you can get delicious brunch. Recently I went to Weathervane in downtown Menasha. Growing up in Menasha, I never really took the time to explore my city until a few years ago. I honestly cannot remember the first time I went. But it has quickly become a family favorite.

This last trip included mimosas, cinnamon rolls, and omelettes. I love mimosas, and WeatherVane has them for only $3.50! That is how I started my meal, in their spacious waiting room with a bar. They also do have Bloody Mary’s, if you’re into that (I’m not). For a Sunday morning, we only had to wait for about 20 minutes. 

Oogey, gooey, cinnamon rolls

Once seated, I immediately ordered a cinnamon roll. It was quickly brought out and the cinnamon roll was warm, gooey, and delicious. The icing wasn’t overly sweet, since it tasted like a cream cheese frosting. I just can’t believe that this was the first time I had ever tried their cinnamon rolls! 

1 Omelette please

One dilemma I always have when going out for brunch is “Should I get something sweet or savory?” but since I ordered the cinnamon roll, I opted for something savory. I was really in the mood for hash browns so I ordered the forecaster’s pride omelette. It came with hash browns not only as a side, but the omelette WAS STUFFED WITH HASH BROWNS. Yes you read that right, STUFFED with hash browns! It also included ham, onion, green pepper, and of course cheese. You can choose toast, or pancakes as a side. So for only $10 you are getting A TON of food. I had definitely had leftovers. 

 

Overall they have something for everyone. I’m glad I drifted from my usual order of the stuffed French toast, and tried something new. They even serve lunch after 10 am if breakfast food isn’t your style. Burgers, sandwiches, wraps, salads, you name it. I personally have not tried the lunch items, but that’s just another reason to go again!
