Caffe Tlazo adds Mediterranean flair to Algoma lakefront

Discover Wisconsin: Restaurant Pick of the Month

December 2005

Caffe’ Tlazo is located at 607 Fourth Street in an Italianate-style brick building. It’s interior echoes the exterior theme with the use of Italian colors throughout. It definitely has the feel of a Mediterranean/European-style café, and comes complete with a four-season porch. It’s funky and eclectic, but with a touch of home.

Caffe’ Tlazo is known for its Panini sandwiches. Their most popular is the Tocana Panini, which features chicken breast, guacamole, artichokes, provolone cheese, and a spring mix of organic leaf lettuce. Owner Jenelle Glime wanted to create a restaurant where people could really relax and talk, while enjoying delicious and healthy food with vegetarian and organic options, and fair trade coffee and teas. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and is open seven days a week.

Now, I don’t want you to think all of this healthiness is all that the restaurant has. On my first visit I indulged in a Prime Rib sandwich that was one of the best I’ve ever had. I also opted for tea and dessert. Their teas are served loose leaf, where anti-oxidants are the highest, not in the traditional tea bag. Desserts include muffins, scones and biscotti’s made by the Pastry Chef. Congratulations to Caffe’ Tlazo in Algoma with a big nod to owner Janelle Glime, as our December Restaurant Pick of the Month. You do Wisconsin proud.”

“Panini’s are more Italian than we found in Italy. Love the Ethiopian and other Fair Trade coffees! Live, no cover, music most every Saturday evening.” alemwp
