Like going back in time. We sat at the counter which was a fun atmosphere. The courtyard looked great but it was a tad too cold to enjoy a sit down there.the food is good...we had both lunch and breakfast. Go there!

We came for coffee but decided to stay for breakfast. At first we were sitting inside but then decided to sit out in their garden,the food was good and the atmosphere was lovely.

If you're on the east side and are looking for a great breakfast/lunch/brunch place then the Plaza Bistro is for you.

The coffee has always been hot hot hot and yum yum yum..I... More

Pull up a sea foam green seat at the Formica counter and go back in-time. It's a lovely little cafe with a great menu. The coffee is FABULOUS - we had been on the road for about a week and hadn't had a good cup of coffee since we left home - this coffee was exactly what we were looking... More

Our favorite breakfast spot in the neighborhood. We love the great food and historical feel to this cafe from the art deco era. If we were just visiting Milwaukee this would be the place we'd love to find. Off the beaten path and less touristy. The location is in a residential area just a bit north of the main tourist...

Loved their breakfast. Lots of options and well made food. Tasty coffee and bloody mary's, too! Service was prompt, especially since it was 10 am on a Sunday. When we arrived we were seated right away, but when we left, there was a line out the door!

Make sure your server knows you want hot food......not cold or tepid. Make sure she/he has your order correctly written. And let her/him know that you'll want coffee refills so please check every now and then.

I love coming here for breakfast/brunch on the weekends as it's one of the easier crowds to handle for Milwaukee brunch destinations. The counter is a quaint, fun place to sit. I've sometimes experienced strangely slow or inattentive service when sitting at a table, but the food is very good. My boyfriend says it's one of the best breakfast burritos... More
