Where to eat and drink in Madison
- Cafe Continental , Brunch here is amazing. Call ahead before you go and the proprietor will put you on the list. Get the AMAZING french toast or a delicious benedict.
- Mediterranean Cafe , Amazing lunch on the cheap. Get the hummus plate with lamb and beef, or a shawarma sandwich to go.
- Memorial Union Terrace , Absolutely MUST DO, especially if the weather is good. Sit outside on the terrace, get a pitcher of beer and enjoy live music by the lake. If it's cold out, you can hang out in the Rathskeller and snag some ...
- Natt Spil , Amazing, sort of Asian-inspired cuisine, along with fantastic pizzas, from a cozy, little-known gem.

- Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company , Decent food, good beer that is brewed onsite.
