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).

Cup O' Joy, a nonprofit venue, provides an intimate and melodious experience in a family-friendly and alcohol-free environment. With the early bird pass, attendees can arrive 15-20 minutes before the general public and get the best seats at a Friday or Saturday night show. National and regional Christian artists of every style grace the Cup O' Joy stage, including folk strummers, bluegrass twangers, punk screamers, and electro-Gregorian chanters. Catch classic country songwriter Bobby Solberg on Friday, February 4, the Celtic punk energy of Flatfoot 56 on Friday, February 18, or any other upcoming show. While basking in sweet harmonies, you can use this deal to sip on a soda, Snapple, or Monster Energy drink.
At each Tropical Smoothie Cafe location, healthy choices abound with drinks composed of fresh fruit and snacks loaded with veggies and premium meats and cheeses. The café’s colorful repertoire of smoothies runs the gamut from creamy, dessert-based indulgent creations to light and refreshing low-fat fruit options or frosty drinks boosted with supplements. Strawberries, bananas, and peaches mingle with exotic açaí and goji berries to form mouthwatering concoctions designed to deliver health-boosting antioxidants, essential nutrients and laser vision–inducing vitamins. Drinks pair with ciabatta and griddled flatbread during breakfast and lunch, as well as with made-to-order salads and a host of wraps and sandwiches.
Brewing up a bevy of coffees, teas, and espressos, Ice House is an ideal hangout for caffeine freaks and chamomile junkies alike. To suit traditionalist sensibilities, stick to the basic coffees ($1.50–$2) or café lattes ($2.95–$3.70), and for more daring drink desires, sample from Ice House's variety of creative concoctions. Try a self-explanatory raspberry white-chocolate mocha ($3.20–$4.20) or the grasshopper frappe, a refreshing blend of espresso, mint, and vanilla, topped with whipped cream and imitation grasshoppers made from real crickets ($3.95–$4.45).
The drinksmiths at Kaukauna Coffee and Tea please the inside of mouths and mugs with fresh organic coffees, flavored lattes, teas, and specialty drinks. Start the day by savoring the rich aromas of a 16-ounce white-chocolate mocha ($3.75), or sip a 16-ounce cup of fresh organic coffee ($1.95) to energize before a morning commute or recreational space-shuttle launch. With the punch card, sippers can sample five different flavors from the menu, comparing the chocolaty tastes of the seven-layer mocha ($3.75/16 oz.) to the taste bud–tantalizing riches of the caramel royale ($3.75/16 oz.). Like the bar in the basement of the Smithsonian's warehouse, the café's inviting interior welcomes patrons to lounge on comfy couches amid an eclectic collection of antique lamps and artwork.
Before Paul and Jared Smith came onboard, the company that became Great Lakes Chocolate & Coffee Co. had no coffee to speak of: it only sold chocolate by the bag, box, or individual morsel. But the brothers recognized how well their rich chocolates complemented a hot cup of joe, and by 2004 they started roasting their own beans. Today, those yield coffees such as the Black & Tan, a combination of dark and light roasts, and the Honduran High Grown, which is harvested on the wings of airplanes.
The coffees add a jolt to Great Lakes’ hot drinks, including seasonal selections such as the pumpkin-pie latte. Organic and decaf teas, as well as cold beverages such as frozen lemonade and fruit smoothies, round out the shop’s drinkable options, all of which complement this family owned and run business’ stock of sweet treats.
