Charming cafe original to the 1920's with very good breakfast selection and good food. Very popular place on Sunday morning, so come early or take some time to read the Sunday paper in the lobby while you wait for a table.

We sat in the diner area, it was fun to watch the food being prepped while we ate. Pancakes for her, classic breakfast for me, all the food was terrific. Thank you Chelsea for the great service as well.

Adorable diner. Great service with very friendly staff. Lots of locals, which is always a good sign. Breakfast burrito was incredible. And they knew how to brew a pot of loose leaf tea! We were very impressed and would go back if ever in Milwaukee.
