“Good and Convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Great buffet. Seemed pricey, but the selection was great! The addition of omelets and waffles made it worth the price.

“Great breakfast for families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

This was a convenient place for breakfast since we were staying at the Hilton. We didn't have to bundle the kids up for the cold weather outside. The staff was so incredibly accommodating,
as it can be stressful traveling with two families with a total of 4 children, 3 and under!
The best value was the brunch. One paying adult for brunch included two children, under the
age of 5, to eat for free! The food at the buffet was extremely fresh, appetizing and tasted
delicious. It had a little bit of something for everyone. The Cranberry/citrus muffins were
extra tasty! I would definitely return and would recommend to anyone in the area!

“A Great Breakfast in Milwaukee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

The Cafe at the Hilton is so convenient if you are staying in the hotel, and just steps inside the main entrance if you're not. I've eaten breakfast there over a dozen times. The staff is always friendly and helpful.
I'm not much of a buffet person, so I usually order from the emnu. The omelets are wonderful. I'm also fond of their eggs benedict.
The coffee is good and they'll keep it coming.

Wife and i ordered off the menu instead of the buffet, the food was great and our server couldn't have been nicer.
