Beans for the win!

Milwaukee's best vegetarian, 2012


For the sixth 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 2012."

Your votes are in, Milwaukee, and you have selected the winners of OnMilwaukee's Best Dining 2012. 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 more than three decades, Beans & Barley, 1901 E. North Ave., has served consistently good vegetarian soups, salads, sandwiches and entrees. It helped blaze a trail of vegetarian dining options, and continues to be a major East Side draw – and, once again, the favorite of OnMilwaukee.com readers.

From its signature burritos – which include a dairy-free option – to sandwiches like the tempeh reuben and year-round bowls of chili, there are plenty of vegetarian choices. The menu includes full breakfasts, served from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays.

Long-term Milwaukeeans might remember the original structure on the site was destroyed by fire in 1993. But the current Beans & Barley building has been around for more than a decade and a half – long enough to make it an East Side landmark.
