Amid a casual ambience, Ironworks Cafe slakes stomach suspirations with breakfast and lunch menus founded on fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Breakfast-farers halt hunger with classic dishes, such as eggs benedict with ham served with your choice of side salad, fresh fruit, or potatoes ($8); or an Ironworks skillet stuffed with roasted potatoes, savory sausage, peppers, and onions, blanketed with pepperjack cheese and over-easy eggs ($8). For lunch, quiet midday stomach rumblings with a savory sandwich, such as the swiss-chard and oyster-mushroom melt ($8.50), or order your inner-brontosaurus a large spinach salad tossed with chevre, cucumbers, and toasted nuts in a berry vinaigrette ($5.75).
Cheesemelt Cafe gets its name from its fantastically gooey flagship: the grilled cheese sandwich. But this gourmet creation isn't exactly what Mom used to make. The cheese, for starters, is definitely a step up, with varieties that include horseradish cheddar, mild havarti, and chipotle pepper jack. Throw in some roasted turkey or shaved prosciutto and wedge it all between two hearty slices of sourdough or marble rye, and you'll see why everyone's so excited about this new addition to Madison's dining scene. The cafe also serves healthy salads, steamy cups of soup, and throwback sides of applesauce with a splash of cinnamon.
Owner Lance Ratze named Yola’s Café for his Grandma Yola, a sensational cook who hoped to own a cafe but passed away before realizing her dream. She did come close, though. In addition to filling her kitchen with restaurant equipment, she piled her basement's ping-pong table high with roast beef, waffles, and pies so as to serve as many people as possible.
Today, Yola's aims to recreate its namesake's hospitality by filling stomachs with baked goods. By lunch, artisans dole out sandwiches, salads, and soups to sate midday cravings. As they dine, grownups peruse a rotating selection of local artwork, while kids play with the cafe's toys, board games, and an old tin can.

Flavors such as salted caramel, Bananas Foster, and chocolate-covered strawberry infuse the specialty lattes at Paradise Java & Ice, a café that the Cutler family opened in July 2013. Patrons can also sip fresh smoothies and or savor a signature treat—Hawaiian-style shaved ice. “[It's] kind of like a dreamsicle because the flavor from the ice drips and melts down into the ice cream,” Dan Cutler said of the dessert during an interview with Beloit Daily News. Rustic blond-wood furniture lines the café, and a cozy lounge area invites patrons to study, read, or connect to complimentary WiFi.
The family-owned-and-operated shop brews sumptuous gourmet coffee and espresso while serving a plethora of sweet treats and tasty baked goods.

Meg's array of caffeinated concoctions includes blended smoothies, iced coffees, cappuccinos, and chai teas, covering the full range of the caffeine rainbow. Meg's menu features several fresh pastries and light lunches, including the ham and cheddar sandwich or feta-cheese-topped Meg's special salad. Visitors can indulge in a blueberry muffin ($1.97) while melting the icicles off their antlers in front of the fireplace at their Alpine location.
