Trunk Show Break at the Wild Tomato

With the trunk show coming up and actually realizing that customers are reading this blog, I have decided to do a feature on each shop during the next two weeks, so you can get to know the owners a bit (all charming in their own rights, and such unique personalities).
I just spent the best hour at Magic Jacket. Taking photos is a great way to really get into the store. I'm a great shopper, but I'm not one to spend hours picking a store apart.
It's also a wonderful way to watch another shop owner interact with customers.
After I finished the "shoot" (doesn't that sound professional...) I realized I was famished and needing food.
I was in Fish Creek, tourists abound on a July weekend, where could I get something really good, but not have to be in the thick of things.
Wild Tomato.
I would just get a veggie wrap to go.
If someone else had been with me, I would have gotten a pizza, which frankly may be the best in the state of Wisconsin. I'm not kidding.

Click here to go to their website.... you must get a look at the menu
And check out the entire website. You'll get a kick out of reading why they changed the name of the restaurant when they bought it, and get to know the owners as well.
I have to admit I was really put out when Diggers was gone, but have eaten my words many a time.

You can sit outside under umbrellas, or dine inside. The wine and beer list is lovely, and thoughtful.
When it gets to be July in Door County, employers and employees alike can get a little "tense".
Not the case at Wild Tomato.
There is quite a large staff, which in such a small space impresses me, and I always notice that they all seem very relaxed and friendly.
Things go very smoothly inside.

This day was so crowded, and it was hard for me to get too many great pictures, but after the two adorable hostesses greeted me, they let me get some action shots while I was waiting on my veggie wrap.

Love this guy... he knew how to work it for the camera, even in front of the hot wood fired stone oven with orders piled up.

A shot of a pizza... wish I had someone to share one with.

So, in about five minutes my veggie wrap came out of the stone oven. Roasted peppers, mushrooms, gorgeous avocados, spinach and a side of beans and rice.
Love all you visitors to the county, honestly I do. What would we do without you?
However, sometimes I just don't want to be in the hustle bustle of it all.
So I took the above, and had my lunch.....


Get to the Wild Tomato in Fish Creek.
