Goody Gourmet's specializes in adorning popcorn and other treats with a sweet shellacking of inventive flavors and toppings. The pop shop's friendly staff crafts more than 10 creative corn varieties on a daily basis, including medium-size bags of caramel ($8.50) and jalapeño ($7.25), and large bags of lemonade ($4.50) and white chocolate ($10). For customers of a sweeter persuasion, Goody's handmade confections provide chocolaty respite with batches of cacao-covered snackables, such as almond clusters ($4.50+), pecan turtles ($4.50+), double-dipped graham crackers ($3.15+), and pretzel rods ($4.40). Goody also bags up hull-less caramel and cheese puffs for those unable to consume the puff's pop-corned cousin.
Art Bar, called a "Painter's Paradise" by Urban Milwaukee magazine, isn't your typical watering hole. In its enchanting interior, hundreds of soda bottle caps create an argyle pattern on pillars, wine corks stud an oval-shaped bar, and paint-by-number pieces—depicting everything from horses to the Virgin Mary—plaster a wall.
The kitschy aesthetic offers a glimpse into the creative mind of owner Don Krause. Krause left his former career as an interior designer for Ethan Allen to brave the trials of opening a bar in Riverwest. And he did it his way: His joint pours more than 40 microbrews by night and Alterra coffee by day in a space adorned with the rotating creations of local artists. The beer lineup includes seasonal brews from Bell’s, Founders, Lakefront, and New Glarus, as well as “mystery beers” served for three bucks cloaked in a crumpled brown bag—the way Wisconsin dignitaries drink. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel describes the venue as “a feast for all senses” and “one of the hottest spots in Riverwest,” thanks in part to its comedy, musical, or artistic events.
Berry Me Frozen Yogurt & Cafe stocks its self-serve dessert stations with a rotating cast of chilly, creamy yogurts made with live active cultures. Guests can confuse coffee cups with swirls of luscious cappuccino yogurt, or finally prove that pastries can exist as both solid and liquid with frosty eddies of new york–cheesecake yogurt. More than 20 toppings ranging from crunchy cereals and fresh fruit to sprinkles and Ghirardelli chocolate sauce await their destinies as the crown jewels of any original tart, island-banana, or pomegranate-raspberry kingdom, and non-fat, low fat, and sugar-free yogurts help waist whittlers indulge with less-guilty foundations. After swirling and decorating their own customized servings of semisolid sustenance, guests tote them to the counter for definitive weigh-ins ($0.45/oz.) officiated by Don King.
Rochambo boasts more than 70 teas, locally roasted coffees, and distinguished microbrews inside its Victorian-styled sipping space. Teas come in varieties such as green, black, scented black, white, periwinkle, and oolong, all priced by their degrees of rarity and measured by the cup, pot, furlong, or ounce. Feel free to gulp house teas, such as the mountain huckleberry or Japanese sencha ($1.75 a cup), or furnish chilly hands with extra-rare libations such as the white silver needles tea ($3.75 a cup).
Loacated in the heart of Historic Brady Street, the warm and homey "Brewed Cafe" invites you to relax with excellent quality coffee (roasted by our good friends at Anodyne Coffee Roasting Company) and array of delicious foods ranging from homemade bakery to our signature vegetarian chili, sandwiches and spreads.
Froyo Bella scoops four flavors of frozen yogurt onto their menu monthly, all of which carry the National Yogurt Association's seal denoting live and active probiotic cultures. After garnishing a 5-ounce cup of yogurt with one of more than 40 toppings, spoons can burrow into mounds of classic chocolate, only to be lured from their lairs by mouths promising roomy kitchen drawer-organizers. Clouds of Blueberry Burst flavor-drench granola or cheesecake clusters in a sweet, purple downpour, and nonfat flavors such as Classic Tart bedeck themselves in kiwi cross-sections. In addition to hoarding stores of calcium and riboflavin in their frosty nooks, many of Froyo Bella's flavors contain less than 100 calories per half-cup serving, which guests can shed by performing blinking calisthenics at the shop's flat-screen TV.
