Breakfast in Milwaukee Near Midwest (Frontier) Airlines Center ?

nsxtasy Jun 8, 2010 07:10 AM

Like the title says, looking for a place for breakfast near the convention center. No specific needs other than a hot made to order breakfast, hopefully within a couple of blocks or so.

A web search has turned up a few places close by but don't know anything about them:

Hilton Milwaukee City Center - 509 W. Wisconsin Ave.
Midwest Diner - 633 W Wisconsin Ave
George Webb - 812 North Old World 3rd St.

So if you can recommend any of these or if you have any other recommendations in the vicinity, I'd appreciate what you can tell me.

TIA.

    I always recommend George Webbs. Wheattcakes are great, the coffee good and flowing, the hash browns crisp and delicious - you won't be disappointed. And don't be put off by the atmosphere - it's a little rough but worth it.

      If you wanted to try something a little more upscale….Kil@wat in the Intercontintal Hotel has a nice breakfast and it’s pretty reasonable considering the menu and the atmosphere.

        You could try the restaurant in the Ambassador hotel . It is a beautiful refurbished hotel.

          Last year I had Sunday brunch at Envoy in the Ambassador, and it was absolutely terrific! Unfortunately, it's nowhere near the convention center; it's 1.3 miles west of there, straight down Wisconsin Avenue through the Marquette campus. However, right now I'm really looking for places within a few blocks of the convention center.

            True, but there really aren't a lot of choices around the convention center, other than the Hyatt . I figured a cab ride straight up on Wisconsin from 6th to 23rd and Wisconsin is a lot better than George Webb's and a lot easier than going across town to the Eastside.

          West of the river downtown still suffers from a lack of good food spots, and downtown in general lacks breakfast options. I've not eaten at Kil@wat, but that would seem the best bet. Some Webb's are really good, some are not at all. If bzdchris has been to that particular one, then it would be an option, but if not.....

          The things I've had at the Ambassador have good, but if you were going to grab a cab to the Ambassdor, you might as well grab on and go to Beans and Barley or.

            Waterfront Deli has breakfast sandwiches and good local coffee. On Water Street.
