French Inspired | Wisconsin Made

Cadre's dining room and bar are now open.

We look forward to serving you soon.


Cadre is partnering with El Grito for New Years Eve

2019 called for oysters on the half shell and champagne.
2020 calls for tacos, mezcal, and a little scream therapy.

Who better to collaborate with than El Grito Taqueria. We know you missed your taco pop-ups, and we did too...

Keeping it casual?

We've got you covered with our bar menu of delicious snacks and small plates. It's designed for those who would just like to pop in for some casual libations and a bite to eat.

Sunday Funday?

By popular demand (seriously, there were demands made), we have started up our brunch service every Sunday from 9am to 3pm. We have a special brunch menu and also some special cocktails reserved just for Funday.

Cadre is continuing its route through France for the holidays with a trip to Alsace for Christmas: A region famous for its lights, kindel markets, and recognized as the birthplace of the Christmas tree.

This culinary style along with the cold climate and geography of Alsace made it very special to Chef Evan Dannells and Cadre, as we view Wisconsin as the most similar region in the United States to Alsace.


Many of us are revising our traditional Thanksgiving dinner plans this year and Cadre wants to help. We can provide you with a full French-inspired Thanksgiving feast or supplement what you already have planned with our version of holiday favorites. All packed up and ready to heat.

This meal is à la carte so order as much as you want. Pick up will be on Sunday (9/27) from 3-7pm. Kick-off against the New Orleans Saints is at 7:20. DON'T BE LATE.
