I received a tip from my friend Melva last winter to check out a place I had never heard of before and wasn’t far from home either. After checking out their website I was moved to go check out their breakfast first.
A walk in frigid cold in Milwaukee can make any warm place with breakfast a welcoming party, but they did enough to keep me coming back for weeks. I spent a number of Sunday mornings getting a reasonably priced breakfast of sauasage, over-easy eggs, toast and hash browns and washed it down with a Fuller’s Porter. To top it off the bartender was attentive, yet unobtrusive and the music was usually a blend of Beatles and 60’s Brit-pop.
Perhaps I burned myself out, but I have not forgotten this hidden gem on the east side where I have stopped for food & beer on occassion since. Now that the weather has turned cold again I’m drooling about that breakfast again right now. Maybe poutine is in the near future the next time around (heh #fatmke).
