Last weekend, Scott and I took a quick overnight trip to Madison, WI.

And thanks to some amazing suggestions from Kate and Kim, we had a great time.

For dinner we headed to The Old Fashioned.


And enjoyed some amazing (yet cold) views of the capital.


But the hour long wait was 100% worth it for these amazing, life changing cheese curds. Probably the best ones I have ever had. #truth


And then thanks to an Instagram suggestion from SuzLyfe, we ended up at The Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream. Probably the best ice cream ever. No pictures, because let’s be real, it was shared and devoured in seconds. Winking smile But if you are ever in town, get this flavor.


Treadmill buddies.


And then Bassett Street Brunch Club.



The doughnuts are yummy. But the lemon blueberry ricotta pancakes are amazing.


It had been years since I’ve been to Madison. My sister graduated from there, so when I was younger, we made quite a few trips. It was fun to check it out and do some exploring with Scott. And with quite a few yummy treats too. Smile 

Linking up with Becky for TYT. Thanks for hosting!!

  5. Glad you had a good time in Madison! My old roommate used to bartend at Bassett Street Brunch club last year…which means she got to bring home all of the leftover donuts at the end of the day! It was the best.

    And I agree- The Old Fashioned cheese curds are the best in the city!

  8. I had those cheese curds about a year ago and after feeling like I was going to have a heart attack (HAHA!), I realized how amazingly greasy they were 🙂 Actually, now that I think of it, I tried them right after my first 24DC! So obviously they were everything and more to my little taste buds 😉

  9. Madison is one of my favorite college towns! It looks like y’all made some amazing choices, especially that brunch, yum! 🙂

  10. I still have not tried cheese curds!! I know… so wrong. I don’t do much dairy, but I think for cheese curds I would splurge 😉

      Whaaaaat? You have to get on a plane asap and try them!! They are deep fried balls of cheese.. . I know, I know, it doesn’t sound like it would be super awesome – but they totally are!

  12. Glad you guys had fun! We’ve actually left the Old Fashioned twice because the wait was too long–so frustrating! At least you got cheese curds out of the deal. 🙂

      It was nice being there without the kiddo so the long wait didn’t bother us in the slightest! Thanks again for all the awesome recommendations!

  13. Madison is so amazing. I’m glad you got the best parts of it (cheese curds and ice cream obviously!)

    I love getting cheese curds when I go home to Chicago. 🙂
