The Loaf & Jug Restaurant was opened more than 35 years ago to serve the customer overflow from the nearby Proud Topover Restaurant. Serving fresh, deli style meals for the lunchtime rush has been their goal, and over the years the restaurant has gathered its own loyal following. Recently they moved to a new, more modern space to accommodate their growing clientele and this spot is also available for private parties and events.

When customers enter, the first thing they see is a large menu board and below that, a pastry chef tossing and pressing fresh piecrust. Once, they’ve torn their eyes away from that hypnotic sight, customers start their order by filling out a form for a sandwich or quiche, soup, and toppings. As the request goes down the line, staff members prepare dishes using the best quality ingredients available, including locally grown apples and sourdough bread from Boudine in San Francisco. Patrons move along the counter, keeping their eyes focused on their orders, and trying not to drool when looking at slices of banana crème and Door County cherry pie. Once meals are complete, patrons can take a seat by the two-sided fireplace that divides the dining room or–in the summer months–they can eat on the outdoor patio to enjoy a side of fresh oxygen with their meals.

With its half-timber historical façade, Arriba Mexican Restaurant & Lounge wouldn’t be out of place in an Alpine ski village. But step inside and the space practically glows with south-of-the-border charm: walls are swathed in warm magenta and yellow hues, and the original tin ceilings are gilded in gold.

The pleasant incongruity extends to Arriba’s menu, which landed the eatery the No. 10 spot on CityVoter's 2011 list of best Mexican restaurants. Traditional Mexican cuisine, such as shrimp fajitas and deep-fried chimichangas stuffed with housemade chorizo, takes center stage, but the restaurant also hosts Friday fish fries and serves thick burgers piled with southwestern toppings such as chorizo and guacamole.

Arriba's adjacent lounge hosts live music, potlucks, and open mics. Here, guests can sip libations from a vast drink menu that features 18 varieties of tequila, seven flavored martinis, and precisely one flavor of water.

After working in her father's pharmacy since the age of 14, Monica Zatarski earned her doctor of pharmacy degree to open her own business and continue the family tradition of providing patients with innovative, personalized health care. MD Custom Rx works with both physicians and patients to fashion custom prescription packages, balance bodies with hormone assessments and consultations, and boost circulation with infrared-sauna sessions. As specialists with the seal of the Prescription Compounding Accreditation Board, the chemical technicians tailor medications to fit the allergic and digestive needs of each patient, from altering a medicine's strength to rendering it into easy-to-ingest lozenge, transdermal-gel, or brain-wave form. In addition to easing discomfort and imbalances with compound prescriptions and sauna sessions, patients visit onsite vitamin expert Daniel Zatarski, PharmD, RPh, for one-on-one vitamin and nutrient consultations that treat common disorders and supplement health regimens.

Ever since Jerry Murphy opened Murf’s Frozen Custard & Jumbo Burgers in Waukesha in 1993, he and his team have been dishing up what he calls “local, quality eats.” To him, that means burgers made to order and loaded with toppings; Friday fish frys; and sloppy fried-egg sandwiches piled with an egg, coleslaw, tomatoes, and french fries—and then served with a knife and fork. For dessert, there’s small-batch frozen custard made fresh throughout the day.

At Murf's in Brookfield and Waukesha, the cooks use top-notch ingredients for everything they make. Their 5-ounce patties are made from a custom sirloin blend that Jerry obtains locally, and their burgers and sandwiches are served on lightly toasted Paielli’s Bakery buns. “Local, quality eats,” Jerry says. “Everything we serve is high-quality, fresh, and made to order.”

Diners can order their food for the dining room or devour marinated and grilled chicken-breast sandwiches with piping hot fries out on the patio.

Named after the early-morning first shift for crew aboard seafaring vessels, First Watch ensures chefs arrive at work with the rising sun, chopping fresh produce, baking muffins, and mixing french toast batter each day.

Since 1983, First Watch’s carpe-diem philosophy has spread to more than 100 locations across 13 states, pleasing crowds with thin, sweet crepes and fluffy whipped eggs, hash brown skillets, and enormous multigrain pancakes. Recently placed at the top of a Consumer Reports list of best family restaurants, First Watch takes the customer experience seriously. Chefs focus entirely on crafting nourishing sunrise feasts and midday meals, shunning afterthoughts of steaks and burgers for edible masterpieces of omelets, belgian waffles, homemade biscuits, and wholesome lunch salads and sandwiches.

Glass cases and racks of fresh bread dominate National Bakery & Deli’s three locations, which bake all of their goods fresh daily. Founded in 1925, the bakery continually recreates classic recipes for a menu that includes glazed doughnuts, frosted cookies, and cherry-filled coffee cake, as well as hard rolls and french bread. Deli fare includes baked ham, seasonal polish sausage, and several varieties of potato salad. In addition to their staples and custom cake orders, the bakery creates seasonal specialties that range from spring’s grasshopper pie and irish soda bread to winter’s gingerbread men and icy snowman souls. Every Mardi Gras, the bakery churns out piles of prune- and raspberry-filled paczki in a celebrated rush that has drawn great press—though patrons can make every Tuesday fat by perusing their year-round paczki selection.
