OBT: The Koffee Kup

Off the Beaten Track (OBT)

On my way to the airport from a conference in southeastern Wisconsin, I made a pleasant pit-stop in the small town of Stoughton, Wisc. Right on East Main Street, flanked on both sides by Victorian-era storefronts is The Koffee Kup, an old-fashioned coffee shop-cum-diner.

Ask for a no-foam latte here, and you'll get a strange look. This is the kind of homey, no-nonsense diner where coffee comes in those heavy, white porcelain mugs. The coffee, however, is not the main attraction.

The food is basic comfort food, and most of it is homemade. Desserts are the stars — cherry pie, blackberry cobbler and others.
