Breakfast

They serve a very good breakfast/brunch with a little different twist to ordinary breakfast food. And their breakfast cocktails are very good. Their Bloody Mary is something that is really way out. Even has grilled cheese sandwich on the pic.

Still closed. New owners to open in future? The windows are currently covered with brown paper, no information if name will stay the same and if it will still be a tapas place.

It has been sold and do not know timeline for them to open it or what the new menu will be. Food was but really not a big fan of Tapas.

While looking for a place to go for lunch, I checked the website for Generals at 5 Points and this message is displayed: We want to thank everyone for their support over these past years! The Gen5 location has been sold and we wish the new owners all the best!

The food here is good, the drinks are kind of expensive, and overall I would say it is a fun experience to go with some friends but after that it looses its appeal. I have only been here a few times because there are other restaurants nearby I prefer. It is nice to sit outside on the patio in the... More

There are many unique menu selections at Generations in downtown Waukesha. Portions can be small and pricey but always delicious. If you don't mind spending a little more, then stop in and enjoy a varied menu.

This is a nice little restaurant for lunch or dinner. There is an attractive bar and a very cozy feel to the place. The lunch service can be a little slow, but the food is good.

I went with a group of people. We shared 7 different plates of tapas. All were delicious. Atmosphere is great for groups and couples. We ended up staying later than business hours and the staff was kind to allow us to finish our celebration. It has a cozy atmosphere yet provides a very different experience than one would get at...

Their menu changes, and their food is always great, fresh, homemade, even gluten free selections. We recommend this place all the time.

Besides their fantastic Bloody Marys, their brunch menu is irresistible. Brunch is a smart addition to Gen 5's repertoire. It is well worth checking out. High recommend.
