Service and food, elegant and tasty in that order. The BEST Sunday brunch in the city of Milwaukee. Also served at one of the VERY BEST Hotels in the Midwest. Just around the corner from the Hotel Metro

The Pfister is probably the best place to stay in downtown Milwaukee and the cafe is good for more casual food. The Mason Street Grill is highly recommended for dinner.

This was a convenient place to grab some coffee, a sandwich or a snack. They have a nice little place to read the newspaper and a tv for your news convenience.

The young ladies dispensing coffees at the counter were fast and friendly. We came here twice and felt like regulars on our second visit.

Comfortable, pretty, with good food. One exception - the morning coffee was bitter and cold. Friendly service. Also can order from lobby lounge off an abbreviated menu.

Being in the Hotel, I always appreciate a restaurant where I can get a good breakfast quickly with an efficient and friendly staff. It was a great way to start the day.

Nice menu selection and you are able to add or exclude ingredients in your menu choices. The food was excellent as was the service. You can spend as much time as you wish without feeling rushed, or you can get quick service if your schedule requires it. Would have no hesitation to have breakfast there in the future.

The staff was very friendly, efficient, and knowledgable. They were attentive without being on top off you. The eggs Benedict was great!

My family had an impromptu group brunch here on a Sunday. The staff was extremely accommodating to our group, which included 2 children that needed high chairs and an antsy 8-year-old, for whom they provided crayons. For the adults, the setting was extremely indulgent and the food was wonderful and the portions were big. I highly recommend the vegetable omlet,... More
