Great latte, friendly service, well worth the visit!

I stopped in mid morning for a raspberry latte, and it was very well made with great service. I hung out to read while enjoying my drink, and then stopped back later in the day for an Italian soda to go. Again service was great and the drink was very good. The next morning I tried an iced mocha... read more

How many times do you celebrate your 38th anniversary by going to a sandwich/ice cream shoppe in Sparta, WI, for a chef's salad? Generally, just once. But if Ginny's Cupboard is that sandwich/ice cream shoppe, once is enough. On the downtown's somewhat deserted main strip, Ginny's can be hard to find. But once you find it, you will be glad...

This soup/sandwich/icecream/coffee shop is great! Everything I've ordered here is delicious and fresh and the restaurant is decorated with cute old memorabilia. Try the Zoreo ice-cream (Zanzibar chocolate and oreo), it's the best ice-cream I've ever had! Get it in a sugar cone and enjoy a walk in pretty, historic down-town Sparta!

I enjoy small sandwich places and love coffee. The only place in Sparta top get a great cup of coffee. Nice family atmosphere, good food and great coffee! Ginny is very personable as well, when she's there.

Cute inside. An old building with lots of history but still modern and trendy with coffee, soda fountain and salads or sandwiches. Homemade soup choices. Would definitely go back and would recommend going to downtown Sparta to enjoy this place.

My wife and I stopped by for late breakfast at Ginny's Cupboard. This quaint, quiet coffee shop/ice cream parlor/soup & sandwich shop has fantastic sandwiches - my wife had what she describes as the best Egg Salad she has ever had... And a delicious Vanilla Malt. I had a cup of wonderful Tomato Bisque and a Raspberry Turnover. The food... More

We stopped in for some soup and were not disappointed. It was homemade and tasty. The waiter forgot to bring a beverage we ordered, but we let it go (not charged for it). It's an attractive, soda-shop-style setting with local flavor--looks like a pleasant spot for ice cream in the summer.

Ginny's is good but it lacks some things. I have been here several times to get different experiences and I just can't get on board. The menu is lacking options in my opinion and a couple of times I went the sandwich was awful. I do think they have a great atmosphere and the soda bar is very cool.

We love Ginny's and it's owner Deb. It's like a step back in time with the vintage décor. Fun.Fun.Fun. It has a simple menu of sandwiches, paninis, soup and salads. We have always had good food. Also has drinks, coffees and ice cream. After you eat stop across the street at Deb's shop Maiden Wisconsin for some fun shopping of... More
