Malibu Moos, a hidden gem!

I always go to Fish Creek on Monday night.  Been doing it for years.  During the summer season it’s nice to enjoy seasonal places, and that’s also the night I treat myself to frozen custard.  Often, that’s at Malibu Moos!  Located at the end of the alley behind the Bayside (where I start my Mondays (!), moos has a great selection of custards and mix-ins.  Having spent a bit of my career in the ice cream business, I know a good product when I taste the vanilla, and trust me, this stuff is good. I also enjoy mix-in, cold stone shops where you can pick this and that and watch some young college girl mix up your custard, but then, I digress.  Moos is in a great location right next to the Fish Creek marina and park, so you can watch the activity down there as the day ends and the cool breezes blow in from the bay. Here’s the website Malibu Moos.  I took some pictures Monday but they weren’t very good so I’m not going to post them, but stop in yourself and check it...

MacReady Artisan Bread…new to Egg Harbor

My buddy Mark stopped in today with a package under his arm and a grin on his face.  “Get a bread knife”, he told me.  So I did, and he pulls this beautiful loaf of fresh baked bread out of this bag, and cuts off a big chunk to try.  Turns out we have a new artisan bread bakery in the Village called  MacReady Artisan Bread, located in the former Cupola House Cafe building, right across the street from Parador restaurant, behind the Cupola House. Good stuff!  So, I headed down to check it out.  The bakery is owned by Michael and Jenny MacReady, they just opened today.  It’s a good selection of artisan breads, artisan cheeses, and ice cream.  Soon they will be making sandwiches, too. Stop in and check it out.  Here is their website ....

Galileo’s Italian Food

  About 6 years ago, when I was Village President, Richard and Pam Wegner bought a kinda rundown building in Egg Harbor and remodeled it into Liberty Square.  It opened as a combination of shops and a great cafe called The Bistro.  Over the years they have continued to remodel and improve the location, and it’s now a great destination of merchandise, a deli/wine/cheese shop, and The Bistro serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. But there was always one part of the building that was hard to make something out of.  So, last year Pam and Dick opened up this wonderful “Italian Steakhouse” named Galileo’s.  “What’s an Italian steakhouse?”, you ask.  Well, it’s kinda Like Harry Caray’s in Chicago.  Great pastas, great steaks and chops, and a wonderful selection of wines by the glass and bottle.  They also have a full bar. Galileo’s was quite an undertaking.  First, the existing kitchen had to be remodeled and expanded, which meant moving walls.  The bar had to be built, and the decorations, which are very elaborate and detailed.  Oh yeah, and they had to figure out the menu, too! Let me tell you that the whole thing came together very well.  The final detail was that they hired a buddy of mine, Dale Kiehnau, to manage the bar.  For those of you familiar with Door County, Dale is the previous owner of the Pen Pub. So, now we have this great Italian restaurant, fun bartender, wonderful atmosphere, and it’s located right downtown.  They open May 18, and tomorrow is the private menu and wine tasting, which, of course, I will be attending.  Here’s the website and...

Door County Beer Festivals Announced!

There ya go, beer drinkers and foodies…two great new festivals this...

The Village Cafe in Egg Harbor…THE spot for breakfast!

When you come back from your Door County vacation, your friends will most likely ask you two questions-Did you have a fish boil, and did you eat breakfast at that little cafe in Egg Harbor? That little cafe in Egg Harbor is the Village Cafe, and it is located right next door to the Lull-Abi Inn. I don’t mean right next door as in Best Buy/Home Depot/Target, I mean right next door as in you can smell the homemade granola baking! This place is great, I just finished breakfast there and my tummy is seriously happy! The menu is varied, with the usual eggs bacon and toast stuff all the way to cherry stuffed french toast. And, remember when cafes made fluffy omelettes in a pan, not flat eggs on a grille? Well, that’s the way they do it here, and they are delicious. There is a pancake special everyday, a quiche special, and a coffee cake special. As a note, the coffee cake is enough to feed a small army. They also serve lunch, with great burgers and sandwiches in addition to the breakfast menu, and during the season they are also open for dinner. They have beer and wine available, too. The Village cafe also has stuff…art, ceramics, knick knacks, all displayed throughout and all for sale, so if you are a shopper person you need to check it out. So be sure to stop at the Village Cafe when you are staying at the Lull-Abi Inn, you will love...
