Lazy Jane’s Café- Madison

Lazy Jane's Madison Wisconsin

1358 Williamson St, Madison, WI 53703

Located in the Marquette Neighborhood of Madison, Wisconsin, Lazy Janes Café is a must stop for all scone lovers. Their fresh scones are the envy of every other bakery in Madison. Embracing the impact of Madison’s hippie culture, this adorable café makes its home in a corky colorful house.  Mismatched mirrors line the stairway and a rolling pin and meat tenderizer replace the door handles.

If you are patient enough to mingle in line on the weekend, you will never be let down by the friendly waitstaff and one of a kind menu options. From a full egg breakfast to a berry scone and cappuccino, Lazy Jane’s menu has a little something for everyone. The vegetarians and vegans even go crazy for this spot!    Read more
