Breakfast
Blue's serves breakfast and lunch with the care and attention you'd expect from a fine dining restaurant, making it an excellent brunch choice throughout the week. Co-owner Chef Joe Muench has crafted a modern American menu that is often recognized as Milwaukee's best breakfast and best brunch, including egg basics, buttermilk pancakes, and restoring grain bowls. Always check out the daily specials, and our signature Browns: fresh hash browns cooked in butter and stuffed with premium ingredients like our slow-baked pulled ham. Top it off with a Monkey Bread (with Crunk Sauce), and a Bloody Mary (with a chaser)!

Blue's looks at Modern American Brunch through the eyes of Lady Liberty, blending Old World ingredients, the vision of American immigrant cooking and the creativity of fresh concepts. We source ingredients that are high quality, regionally supportive and locally sustainable. By supporting the needs of the community we strive to preserve the EGG: Everyone’s Good Grace

    Good food, but portions much smaller than in the past. That would be fine, but prices were also up. Our waiter was outstanding, but the hostess rude. (We were 5 min late and were told that our reservation was "almost given away." Rather humorous, since it was 1:20 , and there were few diners. The lunch was good, but not great; the peach bellini not so! Patio is closed. All in all, disappointing.

    Had a reservation an were seated in the “back room”. I think it should be updated. It is still pretty dark and very noisy. My fault since I didn’t request the front dining room. Disappointed that the menu didn’t contain any entrees with mushrooms. I ordered Florentine Benedict and it was barely warm. The tempid eggs and spinach were not very appealing. Our waitress Kate was special and the hostess did her very best to accommodate our seating arrangement. We were entertaining guests who are very use to fine dining so I chose Blue’s Egg and they appeared very happy with the meal

    The staff was unwelcoming. We had a party of 4, two of us ran late..yes our fault so not an issue they wouldnt seat us but then when we all arrived we were helped and asked to wait to be seated. We happily complied with their inability to sit us until our full party arrived with no ill comments. While waiting to be seated (once all 4 of us arrived) one member of our party went to the restroom and the workers rudely spoke about where the other member was like we were not a full party again. The tone of voice used and attitude given, was not appreciated. On the brighter side, our waiter was kind and friendly and seemed to be giving his best. The food and lattes were also delicious. Overall, id recommend this restaurant but would caution the possibility of staff not being the most friendly. As someone whos worked in customer service, I understand it can be difficult but good service is what really makes me want to go back somewhere.

    We had 11:00 reservations for 3. After we walked in changed it to 4 people and one was over 1/2 hour late. They graciously held our table until she arrived. Our waitress explained the menu and made some good recommendations. Had a very relaxed brunch.

    This was my first time back in several years. I was pleased that the quality of the food and service are both still very good. I was disappointed that several of my favorite items have been taken off the menu. Overall, still a very good choice for a great brunch.

    Both my boyfriend and I love going here for brunch. If anyone ever visits from out of town we take them. They are all so patient and polite. My mom just came from Florida and she stays in Madison for work and unfortunately hit traffic from the fair and game on Sunday so she arrived a bit late and they were so sweet to accommodate her being late for our reservation normally places would move to the next person. The specials are always so great! And their ham is out of this world!

    Blues Egg is a great place for breakfast or late breakfast or later-in-the-day breakfast! First off--the Monkey Bread is to DIE for! It's not huge--enuf for 2--so be sure to order! Then I also had the eggs, pancakes and Hash Browns. All were scrumptious and had more than I needed and brought some home! My girlfriend and I are going back soon! Can't wait!

    We arrived early for our brunch reservation so we had to wait for a little bit, but we were able to enjoy a cup of coffee and look over the menu before being led to our table. Our server was friendly and energetic and made us feel immediately welcome. We told her we were there for our daughter's birthday, so after taking our drink orders she returned to our table with a small monkey bread ring and a side of whiskey cream sauce as an "on the house" appetizer to celebrate. Between the three of us we ordered the stuffed mixed berry French toast special, the root vegetable hash and the pancakes. All three were delicious and the portions were big enough that we all took some home for breakfast the next day. My daughter's Blueberry Pop Tart drink was a perfect accompaniment to her French toast and the (Valentine's) coffee my husband and I had was smooth, the perfect strength and plentiful. We were even able to take a "to go" refill with us. My husband has been to Blue's Egg for lunch several times, but this was my first visit and it definitely won't be my last!
