Yahara Bay Distillers

Reviews:
My husband and I were in Madison for an overnight anniversary get away. We were looking into doing something different and Yahara Bay came up with tours and tasting. We've been to brewery's and wineries and wanted to try something different...and it sure was! We were greeted by their friendly staff, given a tour of their "old school" distillery....everyone was so friendly and informative in telling us how the process works, how they chose to open this unique adventure and about the different things we tasted. If you love whiskey, gin, liquors.....they have some of the most unique and tasty things being made, bottled and sold..... FUN FUN afternoon....check them out!!!
I had a problem with a purchase. Nick went above and beyond to fix the problem. This is an exceptional company with exceptional products. I highly recommend Yahara Bay Distillers.
Not only do they have a lot of great products, Jill was a fabulous tour guide and host. Using locally grown products, they have taken many of the old standards and made them even tastier with their recipes and approach to distilling. We also left with some great ideas for new drinks. Definitely worth a visit!

Bruegger’s Bagel Bakery Bagels

Reviews:
Cheap great medium sized awesome bagels. Lots of varieties to chose from. I like the ones with oats or cinnamon raisin. This place had not changed in 20 years! They are best in the morning when hot. Careful--they were responsible for putting extra pounds on college students who will go nameless.

L’etoile Bakery

27 N Pinckney St

Reviews:
If you are on the Capital square for a Saturday Farmer's Market, don't miss getting a pastry at L'etoile Bakery (aka Caf Soleil). Whether savory, like spicy cheese wheels, and smoked norwegian salmon stuffed croissants; or sweet like marzipan croissants or Pain au Chocolat; everything is a flavor explosion. Be prepared to wait in line if you show up later in the morning, as the place is extremely popular.

Arby’s

1609 S Park St

Reviews:
They are great. Service is always friendly. They take an order and fill it right the first time. I go there more often because they do it right. You may think "how hard is it to fill an order?" Through out my life, it seems that filling an order correctly is getting harder and harder. Maybe because they don't take time to listen to the order being placed. In my opinion, the two best fast food places in the area are 1) this Arby's and 2)Popeyes on Fish Hatchery.

Vicki has catered two parties now for my family and friends. She made amazing crepes for a bridal shower. The other party she made stuffed shells (one chicken and one cheese). Those were delicious. She does a great job of serving the food as well. Each plate she serves is very neatly plated. I would highly recommend To anyone to use Vicki when they need a cater!

Victor Allen’s Coffee

707 S Mills St
Madison, 53715
Reviews:
I still work at St. Mary's Hospital but only visit this Victor Allen's once every month or two. I've noticed that the customer service has improved. The drinks were always very good (it has been *years* since I've gotten any bakery stuff), but now the people seem way happier to be there. There is one guy especially (pretty sure his name is Cooper) who is fantastic. Fast with the coffee-making and just Very Nice. I had an issue once with a different individual working there, but it was mostly my fault for not being clearer. They were running specials for Hospital Week that couldn't be used in conjunction with the punch card, and she didn't get why I wanted to use the punch card for a free coffee instead of the discount. But we got it cleared up and I had my tasty beverage in no time.

Canterbury Booksellers Inn

315 W Gorham St

Reviews:
This quaint, cozy inn and bookstore used to have one of the best light dining cafes in all of Madison. It was so casual and fun, and they had board games and often some low-key live music playing, like a jazz guitarist. They closed up the cafe portion a number of years ago, and re-opened it as Dancing Grounds Coffee Lounge which I never tried.

La Michoacana

Reviews:
I am sad that I am just now discovering the joys of Mexican ice cream at the tail end of summer. What distinguishes this place from other ice cream stores is the abundance of unique fruit flavors and the lack of chocolate flavors (which, frankly, is a overrated flavor for the unadventurous). If you're into trying new things, the queso and tequila flavors are both outstanding (they'll give you a sample if you're afraid of committing to a whole scoop). The fruit flavors are made with real, whole fruit, and do contain seeds (if you get the guava flavor, watch out, because the seeds are tiny and numerous). A double scoop in a waffle cone is a little under $5, and they do take card. Can't wait to come back and try other flavors.
amazing!!! Best mexican ice cream spot in town!!! I had the mango and pineapple which had little bits of juicy fruit. They said they make it locally. Just wonderful! Agua frescas and popsicles too! Im in love and will be back!

Greenbush Bistro

Reviews:
Even though this bistro is located inside a hospital, the food is of excellent quality and tastes amazing. You can get restaurant quality and taste at great prices. Almost all of their meals come with a side. My favorite is a tuna melt with a side of fruit for just $5.50
