Easy brunch option for a couple or two. Quick Service but incredible food. Biscuits and gravy are all time favorite. Pie and cupcakes are perfect for a sweet tooth. Service is fun and engaging!

I discovered the Comet Cafe on a visit to Milwaukee last September. I flew into town and was starving, and the Comet was right around the corner from the place I was staying. I ate breakfast there for the next three days. I've been waiting...More
