Café at the Plaza – Milwaukee Dining

The Café at the Plaza is a bustling vintage café that locals consider a Milwaukee treasure. With its traditional tile work, etched glass doors and original floors, the Café is a nod to a simpler time.

Courtyard Dining

The Courtyard is nestled in the center of our red brick building. Straight out of the pages of a French travel guide, the ivy-covered courtyard offers open-air seating for both drinks and dining. Join us for seasonal al fresco breakfast or lunch during regular Cafe hours.
