Great food - Average or below service

My wife and I both had their sampler lunch plate. It was excellent! One of the best tuna's we have had in a long time. The egg salad was equally good with the chicken needing some spicing up or something. A bit on the bland side for the chicken. It was a little after lunch time but the service... read more

Food was average. The atmosphere was pleasant. I think the prices were comparable to the local restaurants in the area.

We've been making a lot of trips to Milwaukee lately (from Green Bay) and usually shop and eat at Bayshore. We wanted something different this time so we tried Café 1505. They have patio seating and we asked to be seated there, however, the wind soon picked up and we asked to be re-seated inside and this was no problem.... More

The blue berry pancake was so fresh and delicious! They also have these new "toasts" that are wonderful, we had the one with sliced avocado on it, wonderful. Great basic egg dishes and wonderful potatoes.

This is a great spot!! We were recommended to go here from a shop owner in Cedarburg. We were staying in Mequon during our stay. This is a place we will visit again. You have to get their Ruby Slipper instead of your normal mimosa. It was AMAZING!! It has rhubarb syrup, tart cherry grenadine, and vodka. It is a... More

Thank you for the kind words! I am happy you like the coffee/espresso (roasted locally by Valentine Coffee in Tosa) and the quick ease of the deli. We are so pleased with our expansion of the deli, and I am personally thankful that you let us know how much you enjoyed it. Be well! More

This place is wonderful. Excellent service and it serves the most delicious, fresh food. It is also very clean- the water glass are spotless- not one dishwasher spot on them!

This is one of my favorite breakfast/lunch places in the area. Their soups and salads are outstanding. Looking forward to the gazpacho this summer...best in town! They are now open for dinner...however I was not as pleased with that menu as with breakfast and lunch menus.
