Thumbs up UBE: Cumberland, WI - Bona Casa Restaurant

Great family style Italian restaurant just a mile or so down the road from the Cumberland (UBE) airport. They have 2 courtesy cars, and free wi-fi available at the airport. You use the identifier number to get into the locked room with the weather PC and the car keys. The food is completely awesome at the restaurant, with a small town family style atmosphere. They also sell it as frozen take-home if you like it as much as I do. You can buy their sauce by the pint up to the gallon. Great place for dinner.
I think they're closed Monday and Tuesday nights.

I'm not affiliated...just love the food.

Default CAVU Cafe in the Janesville terminal (JVL)

CAVU Cafe in the Janesville terminal (JVL) has nice breakfast and lunch. You park right outside and can watch the planes come and go.

We also like Lake Lawn and the short walk across the highway to the restaurant. Sheboygan has a good ILS to practice and a pretty good restaurant from which you can watch some ramp activities. Bill

Default Don't Forget Lone Rock

Great little greasy spoon located at Tri County Regional, KLNR. Don't order three pancakes though. You will end up taking two with you.

FBO entry combo is CTAF Frequency. Might be closed on Mondays, but not sure. Also I believe they are a bit part time in the winter.

Default Voyager Village

Another nice place. Voyager Village is a private development, but open to the public. 3500 foot paved. Golf course, tennis and swimming pool on site. Just a few miles NE of the Burnett County airport (KRZN) in NW Wisconsin.

Default Reedsburg C35

This is about 10 miles west of the Wisconsin dells (Baraboo airport)
Walk across the street from the airport to longleys resturant for good food and if you want a beer or two or three you can go next door to shortleys....but then you would be staying at the motel Super 8 about 1 block walk from airport .....maybe that is what the 8 in Super 8 means...8 hours between bottle and throttle
Buenos Guinness Amigos
I cant remember if shortley's carries Guinness though...you might have to go about another 100 feet to the liquor store
Can you tell that I like Guinness?

Default Cumberland in the Fall

Hello,

It was just Kate and me for dinner tonight, the wife was busy and the twins were at homecoming. The WX was great and the fall colors were just starting to peek out. We launched from Anoka and made a bee line for Cumberland, WI. They have a brand new terminal building, 2 old cop cars, and several pizza joints.

Tonight we chose to bypass the very good BonaCasa and head into the new Sammy's Pizza. Kate had the cheesebread, I went for the sausage sandwich. Not glamorous, but good food and friendly service. 2 meals with drinks and we were out for under $12. A cushy 5 min cop car ride back to the airport and we were back in the air for a stunning sunset and a nice air to air conversation with -6 driver Peter Fruehling.

After landing at Anoka we were greeted with some lovely sights...





Nice dinner, nice flight, awesome time with the daughter. I realize she will eventually figure out flying to the middle of nowhere to borrow a cop car and eat cheap italian is not such so much fun.
