My wife and I will be in Milwaukee for a weekend and I need to know if anyone has any recommendations for a great breakfast place. TIA Don

    Milwaukee Magazine article on the best Sunday brunches in town:

    You can also search the dining guide in the Journal-Sentinel website's dining guide for Meals Served = Brunch:

      I think the milwaukee mag list if a good one, with most pretty uscale, excepting Beans & Barley, which is very good, but nice and casual. I've heard good things about Hi Hat, but haven't been there in years

      Lastly, an unfortunate negative, a new place Cafe Hollander opened on the east sides. I've had some disappointing experiences there. The staff doesn't seem to have it together at all and I didn't think the food was that good. But my real complaint was the service.

        My daughter took me to The Hi Hat for brunch last Father's Day. I had the shrimp & grits, my wife had the stuffed French toast, and my daughter had the crab cake benedict. Everything was delicious.

        Good to know. Ever since Gil's closed, we've been searching for someplace that's a bit more special than Beans & Barley, or of course the diner food king (or queen?) Ma Fischer's

          I like the retro vibe at the Pfister's 'coffee shop.' Also, Harlequin Bakery/Cafe for a more pastry-oriented breakfast.
