Latest Oasis news and reviews

JM ate the chorizo burrito.
Nichole ate the breakfast sandwich.
The bill was $18, or $9/person, plus tip.
JM and Nichole both gave Oasis Café an A- (see our grading rubric).

Madison certainly has a ton of places to get a breakfast sandwich and a coffee. The food at Oasis is certainly above average, but if it were, say, in the heart of Madison's near east side breakfast bonanza, it would compete with the likes of Lazy Jane's, Manna Café or 4&20, and might be found lacking. However, they also have pel'meni, which is awesome. (We didn't get pel'meni this time because we're almost to the P's anyway.)

Breakfast sandwich

Nichole got a breakfast sandwich of bacon, Swiss and egg, served hot and fresh on sourdough. The bread was soft & lightly toasted, mild & flavorful. She washed it down with a latte that merited an A+ on its own.

Breakfast burrito

JM had the chorizo burrito, which was a pleasant surprise to even find on the menu. The tortilla was tomato and it contained spicy but rich chorizo, scrambled egg, and an unidentified green streak (maybe spinach or a mild herb), which was a good combo. Even better, it was neatly pressed and easy to eat with hands instead of fork and knife. Irony aside, this was a good entrée which was served with more-than-anyone-could-use Asian-style hot pepper sauce.

We still paid Madison prices at Oasis. Breakfast for two ran almost $20. But if you are looking for good brekkers in the desert of Fitchburg, Oasis might be just that.
