The Bacon Candy Made In This Historic Wyoming Cabin Restaurant Is Delightful
Is there anything better than fresh, thick cut, smoked bacon? While most people would say that sounds perfect as it is, Wyomingites know that you can, in fact, make bacon better by adding some sugar and spice. The famous Pig Candy at Cafe Genevieve has perfected the art of turning savory bacon into a sweet treat. Check it out!
Cafe Genevieve is a charming cabin restaurant in Jackson, Wyoming, and a visit should truly be on your bucket list.
The Cafe is named after Genevieve Lawton, who married a man who kept this cabin as a mercantile. In 1920, Genevieve and four other Wyoming women were elected to the Jackson town council, forming the first all-woman government in the United States.
The historic cabin is now a cafe, serving up breakfast, lunch, and dinner just one block away from Jackson's town square.
Whether you're a local, or you're just visiting, you'll find friendly faces welcoming you to this charming little cottage. Sit down and order up - you'll be so impressed with the local flavor featured in every dish.
Whether you visit for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you'll be able to choose from dishes made with locally sourced ingredients, all prepared fresh in house.
Order chicken and waffles if you want to try one of their most noteworthy dishes. If you're looking for something lighter, order a salad, sandwich, or wrap. For an elegant meal, try their elk sirloin. You can't go wrong!
In recent years, Cafe Genevieve has become outrageously famous for their signature Pig Candy.
This sugar-and-spice coated bacon is perfect as an appetizer, Bloody Mary topping, or an anytime snack. You can order it at the cafe, or pick up a bag to bring home.
The Cafe ships bags and boxes of Pig Candy across the country, so if you're looking for a gift idea, it's the perfect unique treat!
Anyone would be happy to get a bag of candied bacon in the mail!
You'll love your visit to Cafe Genevieve for the history, locally sourced food, and top quality service - truly, the famous pig candy is just a bonus.
