Good coffee that isn't from that one chain! Was very tasty and seemed to be better quality than what you get from those other guys too. Much better customer service too. Good location close to town and the hotel.

We stopped in for coffee and were met by friendly, smiling faces and so much tempting bakery but alas, we were too full from lunch. The coffee is from ancora coffee roasters and was perfectly prepared.

We stopped in to see the place and get dessert to go. Very nice place, with a small loft area for seating. The coconut cream pie was the best I have ever had.

We visited New Glarus on a Tuesday and several restaurants I wanted to try were closed. That's when we stumbled into Fat Cat. Fat Cat serves a terrific lunch. The portions on the sandwiches and wraps were large so if you're not real hungry, consider buying one and sharing. The shrimp and corn meal soup was very good. Although we... More

We didn't eat there but had a cup of coffee. Enjoyable to sit at the sidewalk tables and people watch or just enjoy a sunny day.
