We finally arrived on the shore of Lake Superior in the town of Washburn. The internet told of a must-stop bakery called Coco Artisan Breads and Fine Pastries.

We were not let down: the place was magnificent. I got a griddled ham sandwich with melted, velvety Wisconsin cheddar on homemade bread, and a rich buttery snowman cookie.

The blue / green art in the washroom was a frothy mural of the Apostle Islands: the blacker art on my car was a log of the miles on icy Northern roads.

Coco, the kept promise of satisfying and artisanal food so close to the void, made the trip seem worthwhile.
