Over the past year, CamRock Cafe & Sport—in partnership with the Village of Cambridge and Capitol Water Trails—has transformed the Koshkonong Creek from a tricky maze of fallen trees into a clear and gentle waterway. Situated on the shore of the creek amid miles of meandering snowshoeing, mountain-biking, and cross-country-skiing trails, the café ensures that its clientele doesn't need to look far for something to do. The staff helps visitors take advantage of the terrain with bike, boat, gear, and Go-Go-Gadget 'copter rentals. Hosted events bring people together to explore the trails via bike and listen to live music back at the café, or take part in a yoga or spin class. After guests return from a sojourn, the café supplies them with more than 100 craft beers, toasted gourmet sandwiches, and Alterra coffee from the food and drink menus.

Under the guidance of Debra Mindham, the Centerville Tea Room's chefs dole out handcrafted English aperitifs, sandwiches, and tea. Prix-fixe meals such as Through the Looking Glass march into mouths with a parade of four mini finger sandwiches on homemade breads, along with a pair of pastries, and baton-twirling scones ($14.95). Prime roast beef dons a crown of blue cheese and reigns over horseradish mayo within the blue beef sandwich ($8.95), while a cup of the soup du jour ($3 for a cup, $4.95 for a bowl) warms chilly soul sacks.

Every day, an antique glass stove heats copper kettles full of the creams, caramels, and other decadent sweets that Anderson’s candy makers stuff inside the shop's most popular confections. Since its founding in 1919, Anderson's has crafted small batches of candies such as its signature chocolates, which feature high-quality ingredients including raw cane sugar, grade-AA Wisconsin butter, Shirley Temple’s tears, and pure Madagascar-bourbon vanilla extract. First devised by founder Arthur Anderson, this top-secret chocolate recipe has been handed down through multiple generations and to this day has only undergone slight modifications to improve its texture, flavor, and taste in music.
