Small Town Downtown
It could be the corner café in any burg in our state, except that it’s located in the middle of State Street. Pride of place is a century-old mahogany bar that once graced a Beaver Dam tavern. Food and beverages at The Fountain enlist the tried-and-true favorites, made with flair using local ingredients. The roster includes crispy fried cheese curds, seven decadent burgers (one, the “John Deer” Burger, made from venison), stout-slathered baby back ribs and thirty Wisconsin beers. The on-premises bakery, The Baker’s Window, makes artisan bread, pastries and pies.
The Fountain is comfortable yet smart.
