Amazing Breakfast

Cute old school diner in Tosa. This place has the best breakfast special in town. Under $5 for 2 eggs, meat, hashbrowns and toast. You can't go wrong. Their milkshakes are amazing too! Kevin does a great job! Look for Lee'A behind the counter and sit on her side and she will take excellent care of... read more

Got into Milwaukee early last Friday and googled 'diners in Milwaukee" - so glad that Ted's popped up. We went there twice in one weekend- loved sitting at the counters, the service was excellent and the breakfast plentiful and inexpensive- where can you get the breakfast special (2 eggs, hash browns, sausage patties or links, toast) for $4.85. All the... More

Walking through the front door is like walking through a time tunnel. Its an old time dinner with an old department store style counter. The food is all home cooked (except the corned beef hash). The service is among the friendliest in town. And the prices are more than reasonable. What a fun place to hang out with a friend... More

It had been a while since we were last at Ted's, so last week we stopped in for breakfast. The food was just your average diner food. I had an omelet. It was not well made. The cheese wasn't all melted, and the egg wasn't completely cooked. My wife's food was not bad, but nothing special. The place is still... More

Went to Ted's on a Saturday, hoping to have a late breakfast. While we were initially disappointed that they were no longer serving breakfast, we were not at all disappointed with the meal that we had. Grilled cheese with tomato and bacon that was excellent and the most wonderful deep fried cheese curds. We sat at the counter, service was... More

Ted's is very much an old fashioned diner or coffee shop. Most of the seating is at the counter. We've had many meals there and younger people (like grandchildren) love the atmosphere -- and the rotating stools. The food is good and a good value. If you order a malt, make sure to share it with someone--they're big.

Ted's is a place that serves up great food in a fun, 50's diner-like atmosphere. We usually go for Sunday brunch, but you need to be there before 12:45 pm when they stop serving on Sundays. They have the best hashbrowns, shakes and malts in town. It is a neighborhood restaurant also frequented by local politicians and sports figures. The... More

If you're looking for a fancy place, look someplace else. This is a classic 50's diner, (actually est 1941) and I hope it never change. The seating is almost entirely permanent stools with two counter sections in the round. There are also a few tables with chairs and one booth. The breakfasts are wonderful... Specials usually consist of two eggs,... More

We always stop at Ted's whenever we are in Milwaukee for lunch and ice cream. On our last trip the kids decided we should go back for breakfast the next morning. The staff is friendly and the food is great! Our favorites are the milkshakes! Can't wait to go back!
