NEW COOKBOOK! The Nuts and Bolts of SOUP TO NUTS Cooking
(Click image for Details!)
      Welcome! Soup to Nuts was established in Crivitz, Wisconsin in 2003. It is an interesting combination of gift shop, restaurant and an old fashioned Soda Fountain. This combination makes for a unique shopping experience. The staff is encouraged to have fun and be friendly, hopefully making your stop at Soup to Nuts a memorable one. When you leave, it is our hope that you have a smile on your face and the desire to come back for another visit soon.

      Crivitz is a small town in northeast Wisconsin. Its economy is based on tourism with pristine forests, crystal clear rivers, and many waterfalls. The downtown area is not very large, encompassing only about 12 square blocks. This is where you'll find Soup to Nuts. The area abounds in unique and interesting shops, so your stop can include lunch and an afternoon of shopping, topped off with ice cream for dessert.

      The building that is now Soup to Nuts was actually built in the early 50's as the Crivitz Rexall Drug Store, complete with a counter and stools, and the soda fountain where you could get malts, sundaes, ice cream sodas and phosphates. In the early 70's the store was purchased by Doug and Joyce Carriveau and renamed "The Doug Store". The Carriveau's did some structural changes to the building and also added a grill, therefore adding some food items to their menu. The store was sold again in the late 80's and renamed "The Cedar Shack". It went through two owners as the Cedar Shack before it was eventually sold to Jerry and Cindy Herrell in February of 2003, when Soup to Nuts was born. At this point, the building was more than 50 years old and was not necessarily kept in the best of repair. The Herrell's spent the next thirteen weeks gutting the interior of the building and putting it back together with a mix of light, bright, garden and retro décor. Of course, the Soda Fountain, counter and stools remained as original equipment.
