1. Honeypie Cafe

2569 S. KINNICKINNIC AVE. | 414-489-7437

This diner, which moved to a new Bay View location earlier this year, has made a career of offering foods that stick to your hips (hello, pie!). I’m especially taken with the appropriately opulent mac and cheese, with its white cheddar mornay sauce and crispy topping of buttered breadcrumbs, Parmesan and crumbled bacon. $16. 

2. Fool’s Errand

316 N. MILWAUKEE ST. | 414-269-9908

While standard elbow macaroni is the traditional pasta used in this dish, Fool’s Errand opts for ruffly edged radiatore pasta, which has a wonderfully chewy texture that the smoked Gouda cream sauce clings to. $16.

3. Maxie’s

6732 W. FAIRVIEW AVE. | 414-292-3969

The Southern-inspired eatery serves a baked white cheddar mac and cheese that seems a lot like a mom version – baked so that the noodles and buttery cracker topping make a nice little top crust. The mornay oozes with cheesiness, thanks to the addition of Hook’s 2-year white cheddar. $9.
