Golosi Gelato is an authentic artisan gelateria, coffee shop and restaurant; family owned and operated. We make and serve quality gelato and fruit sorbets. Golosi is dedicated to use and support local suppliers like Lamers dairy and LaClare (20% of the milk in the gelato comes from goat milk) and other local farmers for our berries. Our chocolate sorbet is made from different single sources of organic chocolate made in Milwaukee from Tabal for us. The display has 36 gelato pans filled with lovely traditions and unique quality. We purchase local when we can and search the world to provide our customers with authentic ingredients.
We were hesitant to stop here during the US Open chaos. Fate had it that there was a street side parking spot right in front. We waited about 5 minutes to be served. They were friendly staffed and had the system down to get people moved through quickly. There were a few tables inside and sidewalk benches outside. They also appear to serve salads and soup but did not even think of that!! All the flavors were tasty. Slightly priced on the high side though the quality was worth it. We will stop here again.

Looked at restaurants in this town and tried to pick something unique and came across this old train depot turned into restaurant. This place is a Greek/American style restaurant and offers unique dining experience with great tasting food and elegance with a fair price. I tried the Greek combo plate and thought it was all delicious while my sisters had a pasta dish and Brother in law had the beer braised pot roast. Everyone enjoyed their meal and would like to go again.
The fresh bread delivered to your table when you are seated is very good and service is ok, they have several young ladies waiting tables and lack service experience but do a fair job.
The restaurant is just 10 minutes north of I-94 on hwy 67 next to Lac la Belle lake and plenty of parking even for larger vehicles with trailers.

What a great place to the kids and grandkids while they visited with us. The sandwiches we ordered were delicious and then we just had to have some delicious ice cream! Waffle cones for the ice cream were dipped in chocolate and oh so yummy!!!
Great place to take the family for delicious food at a reasonable cost!

Looking for something totally different while shopping in downtown Oconomowoc and came across this cafe. We felt like ice cream and so on a whim went in and was so glad we did. Although the selection of ice cream was small, it made no difference, since the quality of the selections were great. I had the fan favorite which was a sea salt caramel based ice cream with large chunks of chocolate and pecans in it. Very very good indeed. My husband likes his sherbet and so got a double scoop. They offer the usual coffee drinks along with some bakery and the atmosphere is relaxing. When we went, the town was having a scavenger hunt and so people were coming in looking for their next hint but other than that, there was only one other customer in the place enjoying coffee and the free WiFi and the quiet. Would definitely go here again. It's located just down from Fiesta Cancun and across the street from the gelato shop on Main Street.

We are #CoffeeGeeks that find, roast, brew and sip #FarmToCup #coffee. We #neverstoplearning, and then share with those that are coffee-curious.
This is a quaint little coffee shop located in a strip mall sandwiched between Bruegger's Bagels and a book store. They serve your standard coffee/espresso drinks along with pour over coffee upon request. I ordered a 12oz latte and the presentation was great in that the barista made it with great care and finished it off with a beautiful display of latte art. The cafe itself is small but there's overflow seating in the bagel shop next door. Solid coffee shop that I will definitely visit again when I'm back in town.

We were here to sample the beers. They had 5 of their own on tap. They had a pretty good Hefeweizen and pale ale. We also had the pretzel bites and fries for snacks. The waitress was very nice. The place is located off the interstate in Oconomowoc. We were on our way from Madison to Milwaukee

In 2001 we opened the doors of The Pub in downtown Oconomowoc, bringing the first Irish restaurant to the area. We have evolved over the years, and while we still offer some of our original signature dishes, we've incorporated many diverse and contemporary dishes to the menu. We are now so much more than just an Irish Pub! We endeavor to make you feel welcome and relaxed in our establishment. Our quaint and quiet bar features perhaps the widest range of Irish Whiskeys and Scotches in the area - 75 to be precise. 14 tap beers served in 20oz pint glasses (standard pints are only 16oz) and a large selection of wines. Some may wonder where the tv is... we've purposefully never had a tv in The Pub, which is a reflection of our home in Ireland, where pubs are predominantly for socialising, chatting with your friends, and getting to know people in your community. We're always delighted when new friends can say 'It all began at The Pub.'
Thanks to the fine owner and chef for wonderful food! Our second visit in less than a month, our favorites are the roasted pork tenderloin, roast duck, grilled goat cheese, and any soup! Parmesan peppercorn dressing is a go to.
Plus, we have been to Ireland and the fun attentive staff reminded us of there, and the food was even better
Bernie, we will be back!

Love the nostalgia, but check your receipt. Visited in August and when asked for the receipt, our waitress said she only had a handwritten receipt, and did not give us a copy. Normally I would not think twice, but just as we were leaving, I noticed we were given small sundaes and paid for large. The waitress was pleasant and admitted she made a mistake and over charged us. Not a big deal, I know, but this is a cash only business. No credit cards. So if she over charged us, and had no receipt/record of the actual order to share with us, it makes you wonder. Just check your receipt.
