10 Year Anniversary

On June 15th we marked 10 years of The Ideal Market and the Rivers Eatery.  Many people say that Cable has changed a lot in 10 years.  We feel it is the same cool place we fell in love with.  We do believe the community is more dynamic than we have know it to be in our 14 years as property owners.  We’ve seen the addition of many new businesses and many improvements to existing businesses, as well as lots of investment in infrastructure and community based activities.

It’s been a lot of fun and the Summer is shaping up to be one of the busiest and most enjoyable yet.  Stop by for a stone oven pizza, a craft brew, a glass of wine or a slice of Tilly’s Pie.

Tilly’s Pies hours now expanded.  Visit

Tilly’s Pies are available by the slice or as whole pies at at Tilly’s Pie Shop Tuesday through Friday 1-9, Saturday 11-9 and Sunday 5-7.

If you would like to order a whole pie, you can contact us at

SMART Gala, Discover Wisconsin and Cheq 100

The Cable celebration continued as we hosted See My Art’s Annual Gala on Thursday June 14.  SMART is a non -profit that Mick helped create several years ago to provide awareness and funding for artists with disabilities to work with area art therapist and renowned artist Sara Balbin.

Discover Wisconsin also stopped by for a visit and some filming this week.  Keep an eye out for the show this Fall.  It is our second time on Discover WI.

Finally, the greatest single track race in America, The Cheq 100,  took place in Cable June 16th.  The Rivers Eatery was once again the host of this epic event.  Thanks to all of the riders and to Terrene Tires and Wolf Tooth Components for putting it on.

Thank you Borah Epic and Paddlers

Thank you to Borah Designs for choosing to host registration at The Rivers Eatery this year.  It seemed to go flawlessly.  Hundreds of riders had a stone oven pizza and a refreshment or two while they gathered with friends, family and other like-minded folks.  Thank you also for your patronage of Tilly’s Pies and your kind words about our new venture.  It was created for people like you.

We also hosted the Namakagon Paddlers, a group of 45 paddlers venturing down the Namakagon River in support of the Saint Croix River watershed.  Its been a pleasure serving you over the years.  Let’s do it again.
