I live in Brookfield and it sucks for food really unless you like chains, but these places aren't bad.

Cafe One is closed on Sunday, and Mr. B's is closed for lunch and is a little out of our price range. :)

North Star Bistro definitely looks interesting, though. Thanks for sharing.

Marty's wouldn't be the worst thing you could do though, I really do like their mostaccioli with Italian sausage and add the mozzarella, they put about half an inch of solid melted cheese on top and it is a really delicious high quality mozzarella.


I think I'm just going to toss out Marty's as one of the options to see if they're interested. Might also throw out North Star Bistro and Original Pancake House (lots of different food options). Maybe Olive Garden if they're feeling like a chain.

We were definitely thinking of hitting up Kopps for custard after lunch. I've generally been partial to Leon's in the Milwaukee area custard wars, but Kopps is not a bad place, either. Those flavors look appetizing.

My cousin just got back to the states after teaching in China for the last year and brought her English boyfriend to meet the family. He couldn't get over how many microbreweries were in the US. He went on and on about how spoiled we were. I guess I just assumed that everyone loved beer as much as Americans. Wisconsinites are a whole different breed altogether. Beer for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. Even if you order a non-beer drink with your brunch, like a bloodymary, your server will bring a "shorty," "beer chaser" or "sidecar" with it.

You might want to hit up the Delafield Brewhaus and then Le Duc's

That's an interesting option that I've always wanted to check out. I'll toss it out there for them too. Thanks! :D

I second Kopps, especially for some custard when you are done like you were thinking.

I'm going to be heading to Madison Wednesday night with a buddy to watch the Badgers/Iowa game and was going to stop at Salvatore's because everyone here raved about it.

Do I need reservations (assuming they take them)? We'll probably be getting there around 5:30-6. I would also like to take some pizza home and have my dad try it, since food is his life :P Does anyone know if the pizza reheats well or if they would do a par-bake type thing? Just trying to find a way for him to try it without the obvious of driving up there.

Thanks in advance.

Fair warning. It's not actually in Madison, It's in Sun Prairie which is about 10 minutes from the east side of Madison. If you are driving from Milwaukee it's actually somewhat on the way to Madison. I'm not sure about reservations, but it couldn't hurt to call and ask. It has a very small seating area (like 40 people or so) and it's just about always packed, but the wait is never very long. The pizza is awesome even after reheating. I have a toaster oven that I reheat it in and it tastes damn near as good as new every time.

Thanks! We are driving from Milwaukee so I'm glad to hear Sun Praire's on the way.

And glad to hear about the reheating process. If it's as good as you guys say, no pressure, maybe ill bring a whole one back for myself :)

So, was at Salvatore's last night and got their basic pizza with sausage and it was one of the best pizzas I have ever had!

I fell in love with the sauce, which reminded me of a place called Botolino's (sp?) that used to be on Downer across from UWM but closed. And the crust was perfect as I'm not a thin crust guy. The sausage was also some of the best I've ever had, so so tasty!

That's awesome to hear you liked it. If I can enrich one person's life with Salvatore's pizza I feel like I've made the world a better place.

Anyone have the untappd app? I just started using it. It lets you checkin the beers you're drinking and where you're drinking them. Let's you rate them and comment too. I decided to just do one checkin per beer to have a nice clean list. Friend me if you want by looking for my Twitter. Same as screen name.
