Whether you're a breakfast fan or just need something basic to jump-start your day, Milwaukee has several spots that are sure to make breakfast your favorite meal of the day, even if it already isn't.
Blue's Egg is one of the city's most classic breakfast and brunch spots, though its location on the edge of Milwaukee and suburban Wauwatosa is slightly off the beaten path. The eatery serves up delicious brunch staples made up of the fresh seasonal ingredients. Open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
A breakfast gem for decades, Ma Fischer’s Family Restaurant, located at 2214 North Farwell Avenue, is exactly what it sounds like – classic diner comfort food at an affordable price. Slurp down bottomless cups of fresh coffee, as the family-style eatery whips up your choice of waffles (Belgian, pecan and fruit), French toast, eggs, biscuits and gravy, bacon or country fried steak.
For something a bit more upscale, you can’t go wrong with breakfast at The Café Pfister at the historic Pfister Hotel. Served daily from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m., the extensive menu covers just about every breakfast dish you can think of, from fresh gourmet omelets and Eggs Benedict to the breakfast wrap and Colossal Breakfast Sandwich. Borrow one of the complimentary iPads to catch up on the news, order a Starbucks latte from one of the Café’s barristas, and dig into blueberry pancakes or classic French toast.
