In the midst of a snow storm, I decided to venture out to find a nice spot to get some work done and enjoy lunch. I ended up at Kaukauna Coffee & Tea, located on the beautiful (frozen) Fox River in the heart of Kaukauna. Food in the Fox has been here many times for coffee, but I have never tried anything on the menu that was not caffeinated, up until today.
Well, an outdoor patio doesn’t do much good in the middle of January in Wisconsin, but in the summer, this little hidden patio is a great spot to get some work done and enjoy one of their many beverages. It has about 5 small bistro tables, all with different chairs someone collected at garage sales over the years. That last statement is not factual, but seems probable.
*At certain times of the year, the flies are horrible and will most likely eat you alive. You have been warned.
Chicken & Artichoke Panini
This place was packed for lunch! Maybe because schools were called off and this is the local hangout? I’m not sure. Either way, after looking through the menu, I went with the Chicken & Artichoke panini which included chicken breast, artichoke hearts, swiss cheese, red onion, and spinach grilled on flat bread. It was simple and somewhat unique, as artichokes are not usually on the menu at local eateries. The chicken was seasoned nicely and the flat bread was slightly crunchy and chewy at the same time. All of the sandwiches also include a side of either chips, cookies or apples.
Total: Around $8.50 with tip for the panini, chips and water.
