Café at the Plaza
Oh that Café
The Café at the Plaza is a bustling vintage eatery and coffee shop the locals consider an insider culinary treasure. Many say we have the best brunch in Milwaukee; we’re flattered by that.
Sit at the curving counter with a view to the open kitchen to take in the sense of place at our Milwaukee restaurant. Tables and chairs spill out into the private lobby with original Art Deco windows and arched alcoves. During warm weather months, ask for seating in our open-air courtyard, an intimate oasis in the middle of Milwaukee.
Breakfast and lunch are served here, with Sunday brunch a ritual for those in the city. Everything is made in-house from scratch with an emphasis on locally sourced seasonal and organic ingredients.
Breakfast and lunch at the Café – Available all day
If you have time for just one meal with us, make it breakfast. The morning experience is about a well-poured cup of coffee, amazing made-from-scratch savory and sweet dishes, and an authentic retro vibe. Classic lunch more your flavor? No problem. After 11a.m., we serve a variety of freshly prepared sandwiches and fresh salads.
Brunch at the Café
Need a hip place to meet for a brunch? A quiet spot to reconnect with old friends? A solo nook to soak in the comings and goings? This is that place. We’re Milwaukee’s brunch spot – the place where the locals love to go.
Ease Into the Evening
Summer nights at The Cafe are all new. Starting this June, join us Thursday through Saturday night in the courtyard for light appetizers, a locally inspired cocktail and wine menu and live music on Friday and Saturday. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates.
When you dine in our courtyard, your most difficult decision may be which to grab first – your fork or your camera. The imagery of the hotel’s open-air courtyard could easily be torn from the pages of a French travel guide. Beautifully restored, it beckons guests to relax over breakfast or lunch.
Drinks to Start Your Day at Our Milwaukee Café
Begin your day with an aromatic locally roasted coffee or hang out for a bit and enjoy a delicious Bloody Mary made with local hand-crafted & award winning spirits.
Beginning Spring 2015, guests can enjoy select appetizers and libations from 4 – 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday in the Café and, weather permitting, al fresco in the courtyard.
Please Note: The Café has reopened with new seasonal and locally inspired menus.
Seven days a week, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
