Madison's Artisan Sandwich Shop & Craft Beer Bar

Established 2012


About Roast

Roast Public House is an artisanal sandwich shop and beer bar located in the heart of downtown Madison.

Roast opened in October of 2012 by two UW-Madison graduates who believed there was a need for good sandwiches on State Street. What goes well with sandwiches? Beer goes well with sandwiches and beer has always been an important aspect of the experience at Roast. With sixteen rotating draught lines, there is always something new and excited for you to try.

After eight months of operation, Roast received the bad news that their building was being demolished for a development project. Luckily, we were able to find a suitable space for the restaurant almost directly across the street. On our one-year anniversary we reopened the restaurant at our current location, 558 State Street. We don’t plan on moving anytime soon so come check us out next time you are in the mood for a sandwich or a beer.
