Barriques is relatively new to our neighborhood and brings a wealth of not only coffee, but wine as well! Fun place to hang out with your laptop either with the outside garage door/wall open in the summer or around the fireplace come winter.

Great pizza place! No need to have them deliver as it's only a block and a half away! And if pizza isn't your thing, they have a full menu of additional options. On Saturday nights they offer an improv comedy show at two different times. Go laugh and eat pizza!

Good Morning! Where's my coffee? If you don't feel like making your own, go see Patrick right across the street on the corner for your morning cup of great coffee. Brewed right in front of you, this isn't Starbucks by a long shot, but rather a good reflection of Madison's funky east side.
