We came to Brady Street for dinner and ended up staying the whole night hitting bars. Everything you need is in this area. We had lots of fun and met some great people. I have been to Milwaukee many times over the years and this was my first time hanging here all night, we will be back!

Today, we took the Brady Street Tour offered by Historic Milwaukee. Before the tour, we stopped at Peter Sciortino's Bakery for some treats. After the tour, we returned for more goodies. We learned about the Polish, Italians, and Germans who reside and worked there. We were intrigued enough to decide to return on our next visit from Oshkosh to shop... More

We decided to spend the last morning of our Milwaukee getaway on Brady Street. We got there at 9:30AM. Unfortunately, the shops and restaurants (and even a few coffee shops!) don't open until 11AM or later (this was on a Thursday). We only found one open coffee shop, Brewed. Thankfully they served a decent breakfast and really good coffee. Other... More

Cute little neighborhood with shops and restaurants. Read that this use to be the Haight Ashbury area of Milwaukee.

We enjoyed Brady Street but found that it was more about small restaurants/cafes than bohemian shops. Enjoy your walk but you can see it all in about an hour.

Brady Street was once the Haight Ashbury street of Milwaukee. Time has softened the rough edges and Brady Street is now a foodie destination. Be sure to visit Glorioso's Italian Deli and Peter Scortino's Bakery. Be sure stop in at Zaffiro's Pizza on Farwell and Brady for a "Milwaukee style" pizza.

Brady Street has trendy restaurants and shops. There are lots of bars and the area attracts hipsters and young people. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and lots of stores to visit. Your teen-age and twenty somethings will love this street. As seniors, we enjoy it too. Take Brady Street for what it is, an east Village feel... More
