Milwaukee's best breakfast, 2011: Blue's Egg
Your votes are in, Milwaukee, and you have selected the winners of OnMilwaukee's Best Dining 2011. We're announcing the results of this readers' poll, including our editors' pick, in a series of articles that run all October long during Dining Month on OnMilwaukee.com.
For the fifth straight year, October is Dining Month on OnMilwaukee.com, presented by Concordia University. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2011."
When we polled readers last year Blue's Egg had only recently arrived on the scene. So, its fifth-place finish – behind winner Original Pancake House – was impressive enough.
This year, Blue's Egg shot to the head of the pack, winning nearly twice as many votes as last year's winner, which, this year, came in second.
In a recent article about our favorite Milwaukee breakfasts, OnMilwaukee.com's Bobby Tanzilo raved about Blue's Egg:
"Like many, I'm a breakfast fiend, so there are all kinds of places that can satisfy my yen for omelets, French toast, pancakes and waffles. But if I want something great, hardy, tasty and interesting – something a step above – I head to Blue's Egg, where the choices are a mix of traditional and unusual (the polenta is awesome and so is the shrimp, scallop and calamari scramble). Just prepare to wait a bit on the weekends because Blue's Egg's brilliance is no secret."

I don't know why I can't feel the 'love' for this place. For my money, I find breakfasts at so many other less trendy places around town are equally satisfying and delicious....and less expensive Wish I could get on board the Blue's Egg popularity train, but I can't. It sounds as if with the large volume of waiting customers that reviewers complain about, they won't be going out of business because I don't eat there though.
We love eating at the Blue's Egg, but hate the wait. We have eaten the breakfast and it is awesome, but a little pricey -but worth it. I think we have not waited and went some place else as many times as we've eaten there. so it must be good. It is worth the Wait and worth the Prices once in a while.
