The Best Breakfast Restaurants in Milwaukee

Known as America's Third Coast, the lakeside Milwaukee has much to explore, from a scenic stroll along the glistening Lake Michigan to perusing public art along the Milwaukee River. While in town, guests can also catch a flick at the Milwaukee Film Festival or go shopping in the Historic Third Ward. You'll find it hard to run out of things to do in this midwestern hotspot. Not to mention: the up-and-coming culinary scene. People drive for hours to check out the restaurants here in town. You can find everything from steaming bowls of ramen and old-school pizza joints to farm-to-table fresh eats and fine dining. The kitchens do not slack when it comes to breakfast either. If you plan to get an early start on the day, check out our Tastemaker List of the best breakfast in Milwaukee.
