Since 1987, Fayze's has been at the corner of 4th & Pearl. In 2008 is when couple Kelsey and Drew became the proud co-owners of downtown's favorite restaurant and bakery.

The following feature was written by:

Kelsey Williams, Co-owner of Fayze's Restaurant

Drew had been working at Fayze's since the late-90s. He has worked nearly every job in the restaurant, and as manager in 2007, the opportunity presented itself to purchase the business.

At that point, I came over from work at the La Crosse Tribune and joined Drew in becoming general managers, but also owners of the restaurant and bakery.

Now, Drew and I have two kids-- Cal who is 10, and Lorin who is 8. We have three dogs -- Levon, Jessie, and Dolly. I also spend my time working at Spence Elementary School as a school secretary. We both like anything outdoors and spending time as a family.

"Although it has been a tough year, expanding outdoor dining onto the sidewalk this past fall has been really exciting." - Kelsey Williams, Co-owner of Fayze's Restaurant

I love the community feel of this place, and I love that our neighbors all know us and we know them! Although it has been a tough year, expanding outdoor dining onto the sidewalk this past fall has been really exciting.

I am proud to be a part of our downtown neighborhood. I'm lucky to have gotten to know so many regular customers that have watched our family grow. One of my favorite Downtown La Crosse event is the annual Summer Days sidewalk sales. I enjoy opening out onto the 4th Street sidewalk and really being in the bustle of Downtown.

Stop in for service in our dining room, order curbside carry-out, or get it delivered through Eatstreet or Bitesquad. You can also purchase some of our bakery products from Festival Foods, People's Food Coop, Woodman's, Quillin's in La Crescent, and Rochester Wholesale in Winona.

Remember us for all bakery needs -- company gifts, appreciation gifts, sweets for your family! Watch for special delivery information and special event bakery treats on our Facebook page.
