One of my favorite breakfast places in Downtown Milwaukee, the Cafe at The Pfister, is getting a facelift. ¬†
The hotel, 424 E. Wisconsin Ave., has begun a six-week renovation project of restaurant, located on the lobby level of the hotel, which is scheduled for completion at the end of March.
It's probably time as the Pfister could really use a quick, grab and go option and the Cafe is long over due for a few upgrades. ¬†And this is exactly what it's doing. A¬†portion of the entrance area of ¬†the Caf√© will be transformed with a barista counter offering guests to go coffee, pastries and other items.
The renovation plans for the space include incorporating a patisserie into the entrance of the Caf√© with casual seating and a Starbucks¬†barista counter. The patisserie area will feature in-house gourmet pastries and desserts from Chef Robert Ash and his culinary team. The majority of the existing Caf√© will remain as originally designed. ¬†
The whole place will get "freshened up cosmetically," said Joe Kurth, the hotel's general manager. ¬†"The main dining room will have a more open feel and will allow for additional seating. In addition to the redesign of the entrance to the caf√© offering guests-on-the-go more options, we will continue to serve the timeless classics our loyal customers love," added Kurth. ¬†
The kitchen of Caf√© at The Pfister will remain open with unchanged hours for the duration of the renovation project, but service will change locations.¬†Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. - 2 p.m., Caf√© service for breakfast and lunch will take place in Rouge, on the lobby level of the hotel. On Saturdays and Sundays from 6:30 a.m. - 2 p.m., Caf√© service will take place in Mason Street Grill.
