Bogus Creek Cafe & Bakery

Highway 35, Stockholm, WI - (715) 442-5017
Posted By Michael Stern on 10/25/2012 3:40:00 AM
If you are traveling along the upper Mississippi’s Great River Road south of the Twin Cities, circle the tiny town of Stockholm on your map. It is home not only of the Stockholm Pie Company, but of a wonderful indoor-outdoor bakery-cafe called Bogus Creek. It's a charmingly helter-skelter place with seats indoors and out, and a menu of terrific sandwiches, soups, and out-of-this world breads.

Some fine egg dishes are available at breakfast, including once called Bogus hash, which is eggs scrambled with ham, onion, and pepper, and topped with cheese; but the real reason to come for breakfast is to eat anything baked: sticky buns and sweet rolls, muffins and scones, and a unique item known as a Swedish donut. Whether it actually is Swedish, we cannot say, but it's mighty interesting: croissant dough coiled up and completely blanketed with cinnamon sugar.

The lunch menu features crepes and pastas accompanied by fresh-baked bread baskets, tall cold-cut sandwiches broiled with cheese, and a terrific one-third pound hamburger.

The beverage list includes beer and wine, Spring Grove soda pop, root beer floats, and genuine chocolate malted milk shakes.

We love the motto of Bogus Creek: “Our food is real.”

Considering this is Stockholm, thin Swedish pancakes with fresh lingonberries seemed like the proper choice.

Fresh-squeezed orange juice in Wisconsin was much appreciated. And when I asked for a glass of water, they brought out a carafe.

Slightly crisp on the outside, feathery inside, and completely blanketed with cinnamon sugar, the Swedish donut is a Bogus Creek Bakery signature dish.

House mascot Bogus, a rescue dog, greeted me upon arrival and was happy to share my bacon.

I normally hate eating outside, but this beautiful setting proved to be irresistable.

Never in my life have I had French toast like this.  Very tasty and could easily be served as a dessert.  Browned and chewy on the outside and gooey in the middle.

Cranberry walnut bread usually is pretty heavy. Bogus Creek's is lighter weight, easy to keep on eating.
