Some favorite eateries near our office:
FoxTown Brewery (Menu link on Home page)
Relatively new to the area, FoxTown offers a selection of their own beers with some cocktails, good food. Outdoor seating during summer. Overall a nice place to visit and eat.
- St. Paul Fish Company (Menu on this page)
Lots of seafood to eat here - from Jamaican Jerk Swordfish to Lobster Po' Boys. They also sell fresh fish at the counter. Full food service at the bar or at tables.
- Cafe Hollander (Menu)
Our locally-sourced, from-scratch menus transcend trendy. We craft inspired takes on traditional Dutch and Belgian dishes with global contemporary culinary influences.
- Skippy's Burger Bar (Menu)
A fun 'Wisconsiny' place with good burgers and other tasty options, combined (of course) with a full bar and beer options, should you be so inclined. Sit at the bar, a table indoors or one of the tables outside during summer.
There are quite a few other choices as well.
