The culinary artisans at Good Times handcraft pizzas from scratch with a special mixture of Wisconsin cheeses before sending them off for fire-kisses in a stone oven. Gustatory glands go toe-to-toe with chewy garlic bread ($2.99+) or cheese curds ($4.99) to provoke growing appetites. Bedeck a traditional thin crust or classic hand-tossed pizza with a custom medley of toppings ($7.69+), or nosh on a specialty pie such as the monster, which arrives loaded with sausage, pepperoni, bacon, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and black and green olives (12.39+). An array of salads, sandwiches, and 100% Black Angus burgers ($4.29–$7.79) occupy curious cutlery and fingers before they venture into light sockets. During temperate weather, an outdoor deck offers diners a place to feast amid a delicate breeze and flocks of serenading birds.
The staff at Big Apple Bagels toasts bread and bakes 18 different flavors of low-fat and low-cholesterol bagels using a classic recipe before slathering them with 10 different flavors of cream cheese or topping them with deli meats, cheeses, or breakfast favorites. The team also bakes cake-like muffins made with soybean oil, which produces a sweet treat low in cholesterol. Fresh-brewed coffee complements both the sweet and savory menu items while fueling heated discussions about the bagel’s natural enemy, time.
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.

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).
Backed by 100 years of deli experience, Hansen’s Dairy and Deli keeps loyal regulars nibbling year-round. Like a Norman Rockwell painting with a side of ketchup, the bill of fare is an edible piece of Americana, regaling taste buds with creamy milk shakes, crispy thin-crust pizzas, and savory fried-chicken dinners. The deli’s crew also crafts more than 20 different hot and cold sandwiches, stacking bread with everything from turkey and bacon to philly steak and perch.

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).
