The owner of Cakes from Scratch makes sure the bakery lives up to its name by not only handcrafting cakes and cupcakes from basic ingredients including flour, sugar, and fruits, but by also using recipes passed down from her mother and grandmother. By staying away from premixed ingredients, Cakes from Scratch ensures their flavorful batters—which ranges from German chocolate to cotton candy and piña colada—bake into heavier, moist cakes. And the cupcakes and cakes look just as good as the taste, because the bakers delicately apply decorative icing and fondant to each treat, replicating images such as sport logos or tropical flowers to fit any baby shower, bachelor party, and birthday theme. Cakes from Scratch also churns out flaky-crust pastys stuffed with Angus ground chuck, chili, and albacore tuna using the owner's great-grandmother's authentic English recipe.
The pizza slingers at Papa John's toss each doughy discus by hand, and top their signature sauce with decadent mozzarella, fresh vegetables, and quality meats. Pie Picassos design two pies with up to two toppings each, and can commission a portrait of baby portobello mushrooms and spicy italian sausage posing against a backdrop of chewy crust or forge a blend of three cheeses smattered with crispy bacon. Tongues tiring of pizza's circular logic can take between-bite breaks with a side of breadsticks or parmesan-garlic breadsticks. A splashy two-liter beverage keeps taste buds on their toes. Order online to arrange a pickup or delivery, or visit a Papa John's location to dine right where the cheese sticks are harvested.
Family-owned and exceedingly friendly, Julie's Café has been serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner for more than two decades, with years of experience catering events in the Green Bay area. The homey décor at both restaurants compliments the home-style comfort cuisine featured on the menu. Both locations serve breakfast all day, dutifully doling out omelettes ($5.75–$8.95) and ensuring that the every flapjack ($1.99–$2.99 for one) meets the federal single-flip minimum. Quell noon-sized hungers with a savory sandwich or burger ($5.50–$7.25), or dive dinner fork-first into pasta and stir-fry dishes ($5.25– $8.99).
The chefs at The Pancake Place prepare classic American dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A roster of 20 pancake types served throughout the day lets late risers and vampires alike sink fangs into a full stack of three oreo pancakes ($5.95) or a single fudge-drizzled banana-split pancake ($5.50). Revel in the down-home goodness of the stuffed hash browns ($7.75), or triple up on tastiness with the ham, egg, and cheese melt on grilled sourdough ($6.95). Dinnertime diners can experience the Platonic ideal of a burger with the Greek-inspired gyro cheeseburger, a quarter-pound beef patty topped with gyro meat and served with a helping of fries cooked to order ($6.35).
Taste buds stand at attention at Lotus Restaurant, eagerly awaiting zesty Chinese and Thai platters summoned to tables or spicy cuisine snagged from the lunch buffet's daily-rotating trove. Morsels of beef, chicken, or pork bask in hearty ladles of pho noodle soup ($7–$9), laced with crushed garlic and cilantro. For slightly spicier sips, guests can net a medley of shrimp, scallops, mussels, squid, and scantily clad ship figureheads in spoonfuls of the tom yum Talay's hot and sour broth ($15). Golden-fried sweet and sour chicken ($9.50) balances savory flavors against tangy pineapples and assorted veggies, and a roster of curry dishes ranges from peppery green ($11) to sweetened mango ($12).
