Citron Tea is Back!

image

Here it is, folks. In all it’s glory…Citron Tea! I know many of you have been asking about this heavenly Korean tea and I thought it warranted its own special post.
If you aren’t yet familiar with this drink, let me introduce you! Preparation is very simple. Mix 2-3 teaspoons per 8 ounces of hot water and enjoy. Citron is a Korean citrus fruit that is high in Vitamin C. I think of it as a mix of lemon and orange. The bottom of your drink, once prepared, is full of lovely rind that has been softened and tamed in flavor by the added honey found in the tea. Some people like to eat that rind, and some like to leave it. Citron Tea is great for that cold or cough you just can’t seem to shake. It’s also refreshing as an iced drink. To make it iced just dissolve the tea in a small amount of hot water and top it with lots of ice. Easy-peasy. And totally delicious.
     We have a limited supply right now but we will be getting a larger shipment in the next few weeks. Come try some sunshine-in-a-cup today!

Spring Fever in Kewaskum

Doesn’t this photo just make you want to jump for joy?? All of us at The Coffee Corner Bistro have some serious spring fever, and spring fever has us thinking about pasta salads! This year we’d like to try something new and offer up non-pasta salads. That is, salads with things other than wheat pasta as the base. We have a throwback recipe called Northwoods Salad, (some of you may remember!)  that has wild rice as it’s base, but we’re looking for other ideas as well. Do you have a favorite cold quinoa or rice salad that your family loves? Let us know about it so we can give it a try too!

In the meantime, enjoy this photo from last year…

O.K. that HAS to make you want to eat fresh locally grown foods! I know it’s making me hungry…

Happy Easter!

As Easter quickly approaches, we wanted to give everyone a heads-up about our upcoming business hours. We will be CLOSED on Easter Sunday. Saturday our hours will remain unchanged: 7am to 7pm. The Coffee Corner Bistro is open 7 days a week to help get you charged for whatever life brings at you. It’s important to us that our employees have major holidays to spend with their families; New Year’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas is our time to relax. We hope you enjoy your holiday with friends and family…we’ll do the same! 🙂

Open Mic April 12 @ 6:30pm

Up Dates Complete =)

Hello All,

As you know we have updated our menu and you’ve been patiently waiting for me to update the web site as well.  Consider that job finished!! Our newest additions are the Chicken Cordon Bleu Panini and an updated version of the Tuna Melt. Both are delicious and will make your taste buds happy. =)

For rushed mornings looks for our Quick Oats on the counter. We’ll add the hot water and off you will go…wherever that may be. Our two flavors are Cherry Nut and Oatmeal Raisin. They are full of wholesome ingredients that we mix ourselves. Not too sweet and very filling; a great option when you’re on the run.

With road construction in full swing you may be intimidated to head to downtown Kewaskum. Keep in mind our back parking and entrance will keep you away from the disaster that is now HWY 28. Once inside you have a pretty stellar (and SAFE) view of the ongoing construction project. Don’t forget when pulling out of the parking lot to head north and use the First St. exit to get to your next destination. We’re looking forward to your visit!
