The Wisconsin Restaurant That’s One Of The Most Unique In America

I’m not sure there’s a way to properly describe Tom’s Burned Down Cafe – it’s the type of place you must experience to truly understand.

If you’re on Madeline Island – or even if you’re not – a trip to Tom’s has to be on your list. You might pass it by, assuming it’s a junkyard, but that’s part of its charm. Named one of the best beach bars in America more than once, despite not being particularly close to the water, Tom’s is an experience that you’ll be talking about for years to come.

Tom’s is located at 274 Chebomnicon Rd, La Pointe, WI 54850. You’ll need to take the ferry from Bayfield to get there.
