Thursday morning after a great networking event, Food in the Fox headed to a new spot for breakfast, Aspen Coffee & Tea in Menasha. We have been to several coffee shops all around the Fox Valley, but I must say, the sunny coffee shop was a nice surprising treat to stumble upon. When we walked in, it was a bit different than most coffee shops. There is a UPS store in the middle with a cafe on one side and a bakery on the other. They are both Aspen Coffee and Tea, but one side focuses on coffee and lunch type items and the other side is strictly donuts, muffins, and other incredible bakery items.
New York Style Bagel
It also is home to the ‘world’s largest beanbag chair’, which I tried out. I could have sat in that comfortable chair of beans all day, but my schedule said otherwise. I decided on something simple, a bagel with cream cheese. As you can see, this New York style bagel was pretty ridiculous in size. It was probably about 3 times the size of a normal bagel found in supermarkets. They had a few different kinds and I went with one topped with baked-on cheese. It was absolutely delicious and gone relatively quickly. The bright coffee shop is on the list of places to try for lunch.
