Just around the corner from Rittenhouse Avenue, this is a great place to grab a healthy sandwich, drink or snack. I like to stop by at lunch time to get something to take to the park on the lake, which is just a few steps away.

Great food but get there early before it's sold out. No inside seating so be prepared to picnic. Very quick service.

Just a cute little tucked away oasis! I was in the mood for just a little snack when I came upon Wild By Nature and I must say I am beyond pleased that I did! They have plenty of fresh deli sandwiches and so many other tasty snacks and treats. It was just in all around wonderful place. I was... More

We tried to get sandwiches before the cruise. The line was long and the service was incredibly slow and talkative. When I finally got to the counter and ordered a salad, but asked for no onions...I was told it would take too long and I would miss the departure. When I was irritated (since I had waited 30 mins for... More

Hello - yes I remember you. There were approximately 12 people in line in front of you. They all came into my business at approximately 4:40 PM - and normally we do close at 5:00 PM. I had sent my helper home at 4:00 because things had been so quiet. I know I finally got to you at approximately 5:15... More

After getting absolutely no service at the Fat Radish after a 15 minute wait, I came here. No seating as it is takeout. I was welcomed with a cordial smile and a great attitude from the young gal that served me. To go with that, the Smoked Whitefish sandwich got my curiosity and turned out to be awesome. Stop on...

Had the whitefish sandwich. Fish was tasty but the sandwich was a waste of money. I make more interesting sandwiches at home. Wanted to charge extra to change the bread!

Hello - Yes, I remember your request. The whitefish sandwich comes on a locally baked sourdough battard made by Bayfield's own Starlit Kitchen Bakery. It also comes with our own homemade red onion based mayo, lettuce and tomato. The sandwich has a 1/2 fillet of maple wood smoked whitefish. If we put the sandwich on another bread choice we would...

We were looking for a fast take-out lunch. Chose the ham and Swiss sandwich and a ginger beer. Total cost about $10. Walked into the park across the street for a place to sit in the shade. Both the sandwich and the views of the water and marina were great.

Ventured in here for lunch one afternoon while in Bayfield, being it was across the street from the Bayfield Inn where we were staying. Happy we did because the food was very good & fresh. We all ordered the turkey sandwich aNd enjoyed it. Nice woman who owns or manages this cute deli.

They have freshly made sandwiches in the cooler, or you can have one made to order. They have some local produce - the strawberries were in season when we were there - and they use high quality, fresh ingredients. Great place to go!

Fresh sandwiches with thick slices of meats and delicious, homemade bread...perfect stop to take sandwiches on the apostle island cruise. Other options are cheese blocks, homemade hummus and spreads and crackers to take to the park for a picnic.
