After a stormy night on the St. Croix River at Interstate State Park, we headed to town in search of food and coffee, which we often make at our campsite with a hand-crank grinder and French press.
Just across Osceola Creek, we spotted an inviting little place, The Watershed Cafe. It partners with small, local farmers for nearly all of its ingredients, and we could taste the difference.
I went simple with the Classic Breakfast Sandwich and fruit. I was expecting “good enough” but got “awesome.”
Eggs done a perfect over-medium. Bacon, crispy. Melty Wisconsin cheddar (is there anything better?). And amazing buttery toast (bread makes or breaks a sandwich).
We settle for oatmeal or granola bars often enough when camping and rushing off to a shoot first thing in the morning. So after a few mornings without eggs, this place was just what the doctor ordered for Dave, who delighted in his Wisconsin Ham & Cheese Omelet. When in Wisconsin, you order cheese (we already snagged a bag of curds for the car).
We’re a bit partial to our campfire coffee, but sometimes the best coffee is the coffee you have.
Thanks for the fuel, Watershed!
