There are many activities that should not be performed on an empty stomach, including swimming, surgery, and swimming 30 minutes after having your appendix removed. Acquire activity fuel with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of café fare at Ironworks Cafe in Madison.
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).
From a communally conscious spot inside the Goodman Community Center, Ironworks Cafe continues to partner with local high schools to provide teens with employment and training for customer service and management. As such, all guests are encouraged to assist in the growing process by providing written feedback for staffers or by simply high-fiving anyone who appears to support knowledge.
- Currently the menu changes daily. For lunch I tried a hot ham and muenster cheese sandwich with Hawkwind Heat mustard from Baraboo and found it wickedly satisfying – Adam Powell, The Daily Page
- watching little kids breakdance while you eat homemade brownies is way more amusing than obsessing over which fork to use on your crème brûlée. – Jessica Steinhoff, A.V. Club Madison
