Breakfast Options at the Water Street Café

Start your day off right with a wholesome breakfast ready to-go or eat in-house at the Co-op’s Water Street Café.  The Café features handmade, from-scratch breakfast sandwiches and burritos every morning – Monday through Saturday.  Sunday brunch starts when the Co-op opens at 10:00 am on Sunday and features an assortment of breakfast hot bar options.

We offer two different kinds of breakfast burritos – our Regular Breakfast Burrito and Potato with Green Chile.  Both of these breakfast options start with Larry Schultz Organic eggs, homemade organic seasoned pinto beans, our own 4-cheese blend of Shullsburg cheese, and Salsa Lisa.  We use organic whole wheat wraps or a gluten free variety, plus Beeler’s pork – which we season ourselves.  We offer vegetarian and gluten free varieties of our burritos as well and they are available Monday through Saturday on our hot bar starting at 8:00 am when the store opens.

Additionally, for you sandwich lovers out there, we offer a limited number of pre-made, hot breakfast sandwiches that include Waving Grains Bakery Whole Wheat buns, Beeler’s Uncured Applewood Smoked Bacon, Larry Schultz Organic eggs, and our special Shullsburg 4-cheese blend.

As with any growing entity, we are seeing our share of growing pains in the Cafe – and we are seeking your input.  As the popularity of the Café continues to grow, we will continue to provide the best food while keeping efficiencies in production.  We aren’t short on ideas ourselves, but we would love to hear from you about what could make our breakfast offerings more appealing and worth our time to produce.  What are your thoughts on made-to-order breakfast panini – with a call-ahead option so it is ready when you get here?  Perhaps ready-to-go oatmeal?  Or a quiche or breakfast casserole every morning on the hot bar?

Don’t forget, the Water Street Café also offers an espresso bar and fresh-brewed coffee selection, featuring fair trade and organic coffees from Kickapoo Coffee roasters in Viroqua, Wisconsin.  Three varieties of caffeinated brewed coffee, one decaf and hot water for a selection of teas is available at the Café counter.  Or order your favorite espresso drink featuring fair trade organic espresso beans and your selection of dairy or non-dairy milks.


Start your day off the wholesome way with breakfast from the Water Street Café.
