Downtown

The Prize Package

The Prize Package is kind of notorious for their burgers and fried foods. Seriously, are you craving something fried? Because chances are good the Prize Package fries it. Corn nuggets, okra, cauliflower, green beans, cheese curds, etc, etc. They’re located a few blocks east of SGI on 6th Street.

Juli’s Coffee and Bistro

Juli’s is a downtown favorite serving breakfast, lunch, and goodies in between. They’re located conveniently to the SGI office though parking can sometimes be a challenge during peak hours. Don’t let it stop you though. If you park a little further north on Kansas Ave, you’ll pass by Hazel Hill Chocolates and Cashmere Popcorn. You can always pop in and get yourself some afternoon treats on the way back to your car.

Shana Cake

This has to be said: If you didn’t know in advance that Shana Cakes goodies contain no gluten, wheat, soy, dairy, corn, nuts, tree nuts, GMOs, artificial flavorings/colors or preservatives, I don’t think you’d be able to tell. Their baked goods are nothing short of delicious.

The RowHouse

The RowHouse is a fantastic place within a short driving distance of the SGI offices. You can get there and back for lunch in under an hour if you don’t linger… but, honestly, I’d recommend going on a day when you don’t have meetings right after. Lingering is something you want to do here. Reservations not required for lunch but I’d recommend them for dinner.
