Great homey little place, you can tell it's a local hangout with regulars. The bar was full so we took a table with a view of the Brewers game and on the advice of a friend, ordered the deep fried brick cheese curds. They were served with ranch but it was not needed, these curds are delicious! Light and crispy, not a heavy crumb coating. I'd go back for these alone! Then I was served my main course, a Spicy Bacon Cheeseburger. Three sizes available, I chose the smaller 1/3 lb patty. It was dressed with jalapeno cheddar and jalapeno bacon, thru the garden (very fresh lettuce, tomato, pickle, onion), a bit of mayo and the best grilled beef patty I've had on a burger in awhile! This was all served on a grilled/toasted fresh bun with nice crispy edges. On the side were homemade chips that were also light and crispy and yet a nice softness to the centers and a pickle spear. My hubby chose the Brick Pattymelt served on fresh rye bread. Also with homemade chips and a pickle and says it was equally delicious! I'm not sure how there has not been a review here already because it is certainly a place we plan on frequenting!

Confections For Any Occasion

My husband and I stayed at the Audubon Inn and they recommended going into Theresa to visit the local candy shop. Well we went there thinking it was not going to be anything we haven't seen in Milwaukee. Boy were we mistaken.....Joel (who is blind) owns and makes everything and we were both floored by the perfection of all of his candy and chocolate! Joel not only has novelty candy like Jaw Busters and giant jaw breakers but an assortment of Wisconsin wines, cheeses ans salt water taffy. When we went we really thought that he would just have the normal confection chocolate, i.e. bear paws, caramels, toffee, which he does. But he also has chocolate pops in every shape and color imaginable, from animals (we bought a moose) to classic cars, to flip flops, the decision was almost impossible to make. I would have to say that Joel's chocolate is one of the best I ever tasted. I bought one package of 5 dark chocolate covered raspberry bunnies, I was leery, some raspberry filled chocolates are terrible, these are fantastic, it tastes like you are biting into a fresh raspberry, I wished I bought more! This shop is located 1 hour from Milwaukee, WI, I highly recommend going there, to pick up a little of everything and even have lunch! Remarkably....truly remarkable what Joel can create!
I found Joel's online searching for the perfect candy basket. I am in Buffalo NY and no one local could give me what I needed, a beautiful basket of hard candies for a friend going through chemo treatments. One phone call and I received the most amazing service from Caitlin, who "got" what I wanted! She listened to my story and took the time to make the gift basket "from the heart", wonderfully presented by a big stuffed teddy bear . She sent me an photo of what my friend would receive for perfect follow up. The candies were in abundance for a big show, but the stellar service and caring by Caitlin and the store made my experience with Joel's OVER THE TOP WOO HOO. Thanks so much!
A hidden gem in Theresa, Wisconsin. We stopped here for ice cream after visiting widmers cheese cellar. What a pleasant surprise!! Not only did they have ice cream, but delicious fresh made chocolates, as well as local wines, beers, and other goodies. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Joel, who was beyond helpful, recommending other local resources and places to check out. Overall a great experience that satisfied my sweet tooth!!
