Farm Fresh Food with a Refreshing Farm View

I would eat here every single day. If Oasis Eatery were closer to the cities I would stop reviewing restaurants and only eat there. Careful, you might miss it! Out in the middle of open fields along a lone highway in Wisconsin, near Redwing, is Oasis Eatery at Nesbitt's Nursery. I cannot rave enough about this place. The food, the location, the people, the pie!

Let me start at the end. After the meal we visited the Nesbitt's new Red Wing Confectionary. Unbelievably fresh and delicious samples of homemade chocolates, ice cream, and other desserts are available the first week of June 2014 for their Grand Opening. While we visited, peanut butters cups and rhubarb croissants were sampled. We went home with way too many sweets, including fresh made peanut butter cups that were the best I had ever eaten. I cannot wait to get more. Had I not been stuffed from brunch I would have bought a slice of pie from the restaurant, which the locals at Uffda raved about.

At Oasis the menu is very limited. When we visited on a Sunday morning the menu consistent of two options: Brunch or Lunch. All ingredients are local, organic, and homemade. They hand craft every day's menu, depending on what is available. When the food came, the presentation was just as appetizing as the rich and delicious food. Here was brunch:

Sausage gravy with a house fresh biscuit
Farm fresh eggs with asparagus and spinach
Roasted potatoes with herbs
Rhubarb croissant with Lilac Ice cream

The staff were extremely accommodating and down to earth. Since we are vegetarians we requested to omit the gravy. The cook came back and asked if we would like fresh morel mushroom gravy instead. Who does that?! The morels were so fresh they still had a little dirt on them. The flavor of the gravy, biscuit, and eggs were so rich I was stuffed half way through the meal. I will probably never experience food as fresh as at Oasis Eatery at Nesbitt's Nursery.


The best part: Freshest farm food with a beautiful farm view
The worst part: Everyone will hear you sit down because of the heavy, handmade, steel chairs. Ambiance could use some drop-down lighting.
