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

We used to live on Brady street in the 1970s when it was a hippie stronghold, then became a little down and out with paper bag carry out liquor store customers in the 80s. Now, it is a thriving neighborhood, with a unique combination of upscale to reused boutique clothing, restaurants serving a range of foods from cheap to pricey.... More

After dining at Glorioso's my wife and I explored this fun neighborhood. It is a special place that is organic( that is it has developed on it's own and is not a planned development

Keep walking...wherever you stop, you'll have plenty to choose from whether a full meal, drinks, snacks, etc. in a variety of cuisines and prices. Get the special of the day at The Garage, which combines a sandwich and a glass of beer for ten bucks. Great value, good people watching, and if you're lucky, a beautiful and relaxing day in...

There are a number of good restaurants and little shops on Brady Street. There is a wonderful bakery called Sciortino's that has the best bread and bakery. Also, stop into Glorioso's Italian Deli. They have everything Italian you could possibly want. Two other great restaurants are Mimma's (Italian) and Bosley on Brady (American).
