Latest M-N-M Coffeehouse news and reviews

JM ate the ham and cheese croissant sandwich.
Nichole ate a scrambler.
The bill was $18, or $9/person, plus tip.
JM and Nichole both gave M-N-M Coffeehouse a B+ (see our grading rubric).

M-N-M Coffeehouse, just off one of the two main intersections in Waunakee, has comfy couches, a large central fireplace, meeting rooms, and Colectivo coffee -  many desirable traits in a coffee shop. It's near the post office and Doughboys, and we'd go back if we were nearby.

They serve a small menu of hot breakfast and lunch items. We went all out, partly because none of the muffins and scones in the bakery case really jumped out at us.

JM's ham & cheese (we know, we know) croissant was prepared with cheddar and green peppers and some nice lettuce. It did have a whole lotta ham, and the croissant was flaky, but somehow it just failed to be greater than the sum of its parts. It may be that it was served sans condiments which can make or break a sandwich.

Breakfast croissant

Nichole got a scrambler with broccoli, tomato, cheese, bacon, sausage, green pepper, onion, and spinach laid on top - the works. It was very good, and served with fresh bread and butter. The cappuccino was just OK - mostly because she's picky, but paper cups are always a minus, especially for a dine-in order. 

Breakfast scrambler

M-N-M's food will likely neither melt in your mouth nor your hand. But large windows and a relaxed atmosphere are as welcome in Waunakee as anywhere. So while it ain't Firefly, it ain't bad.
