Madison, WI lunch
- MN Hick Chowhound Nov 29, 2007 06:13 AM
My wife and I will be passing through Madison on Saturday and are looking for lunch. Something local, good food, etc. Any cuisine, anywhere in or around town. Thanks.
It will be crowded on Saturday, but I would recommend The Marigold, down the street from Monona Terrace, where the farmer's market is currently located. Great sandwiches, eggs, soups, etc. Also on the square - The Old Fashioned, local Wisconsin fare. Cafe Soleil, the pastry & lunch outlet of the well-known locavore haven L'Etoile. Slightly off the square, a newcomer to the Madison dining scene that does knockout Brazilian-esqe salads & sandwiches, The Cabana Room. Or brunch at the local, great Laos place, Lao Laan-Xang. Those are my top five off the top of my head. Enjoy your visit!

itsbubbles, you are clearly very familiar with the Madison dining scene. Would you mind adding your thoughts to the topic I started at www.chowhound.com/topics/462929 ? I will be treating a UW freshman to Sunday brunch soon and I'm trying to decide among Café Continental, Cocoliquot, Sardine, Eldorado Grill, and Tex Tubb's Taco Palace. (I was warned off Nau-Ti-Gal.) Thanks!
