AB Road Eats: Green Bay


COFFEE

Kavarna Coffeehouse: It was darn cold when I arrived in Green Bay (and snowing), so I warmed up with a cortado and a hearty piece of a berry crumble.

The Attic: This was pretty cool. Not often do you walk into a coffee shop (that also has used books) and the barista asks if she can experiment making a new drink for you. Heck yeah. I had what’s now called a Tundra Latte. A new invention for the espresso/chocolate fan in Green Bay.

LUNCH

Kroll’s West: OK. So I now know there are two Kroll’s. I will state that my fans sent me to Kroll’s West, the location across from Lambeau Field (Green Bay’s capital). While I didn’t have time to go to both, I truly enjoyed my time here. I loved the “Press for Service” buttons at each table. And those cheese curds. The best I had in Green Bay.

Titletown Brewing Co.: I was told a visit to Green Bay wouldn’t be complete without a beer from Titletown. These guys know how to make beer. I had what’s called a Dark Helmet Schwartzbier and took some back for the crew. If you’re there when they make New England Claw Chowder, get a bowl of that too.

    Monzu Bakery has the most delicious cakes, cookies and so many other goodies to keep your sweet tooth happy. The owner and staff are friendly and go out of their way to make your experience one to keep coming back to

    Chefusion is an amazing upscale restaurant in the Broadway district! Chef Tony runs his restaurant and kitchen amazingly, and is also a great person! A few blocks down is a small, but equally as amazing, family bakery called Monzu. All the ladies there are great, and their macaroons and Italian meringue buttercream is to die for!

    Moving from Chicago to Green Bay 12 years ago was a food culture shock! Since then we have found some wonderful restaurants from CHIVES, Rustique just around the corner for pizza, or Shoots Bar & Grill best burgers all in Suamico. Downtown there’s Black & Tan, Chefusion, Hinterland, & The Cannery. In DePere the Graystone Ale House caprese Bruschetta Burger melts in your mouth.

    My father was the manager here in 1955 when it was a Goodyear Tire& Rubber Company store. My sister was born when we were in Green Bay in 1955.

    I HIGHLY recommend trying The Cannery for anything and Rustique for pizza. The Cannery is pricey but they use all local products. Also, Gather is just down the road on Broadway. It’s used for receptions and stuff but I believe you can eat there on a normal night.

    Jakes pizza is a Green Bay institution and has a crust style I’ve never seen before nor can I compare to anything I’ve had, added bonus it’s ridiculously delicous! Luna coffee in Depere has the best coffee in the Green Bay Area hands down. They do their own roasting.

    My new favorite is Aardvark Wine Lounge…a great new place serving “excellent wine and good food with a South African twist.” Chives is an old favorite – try the Classic Steak Fritte or the Roasted Pork Tenderloin.

    I highly recommend The Cannery. Not only is it a restaurant with great food, you can watch them cook in an open kitchen and they have a small market. They use locally sourced food whenever possible. I love this place!

    The best burger in town is 15 minutes north of GB at Joe Rouers. The best pizzas are Cranky Pats (thin crust, pricey, ok buffet), Jake’s Pizza (doesn’t open until 4 closes by 9 some times), and Gallaghers Pizza (very good pizza and the best buffet!).

    Chili Johns…a local treasure which happens to be across the street from a pretty groovy record shop. Also, Al’s Hamburger. A little mom & pop style dive in our downtown. Both places do food right…in a locally driven, hometown kind of way. Try to find a bowlnof Booyah while you’re in the area; our regional answer to a comforting bowl of chicken soup. You won’t regret it!

    For lunch, I recommend Chili John’s. It’s kind of like Cincinnati-style chili, but not quite. It’s something unique, hearty, and totally Green Bay. The restaurant is a nondescript diner in a strip mall, but totally awesome. I have family that comes to town to do two things: see my kids and me, and eat Chili Johns.

    Breakfast: Just down the road from Chili John’s in the Pancake Place. Another old school diner, they serve enormous pancakes with a smile. It’s nothing pretentious, just good old diner food. The pancakes are their signature (duh!) and are as big as a plate.

    Woman of Alien Perfect work you have done, this great site is actually interesting with fantastic details. Time is God as means of maintaining all the things from going on at once.

    We were at the meet and greet and sat in second row at the show. Amazing fun! Thank you for making one of my dreams come true! Kinda of embarrassed to say I made an homage poster with all the items related to the show!

    Too bad you missed the classic Kroll’s on Main Street. That’s the place – even President Obama made sure he got to that one. It has the chrome selector tabs for the jukebox at each booth. Their burger with the butter square and classic bun is fantastic. Well, if in Chicago, there is also one on South Michigan Avenue, run by relatives of the original owners in Green Bay.
