There's a new stop for coffee in Downtown Milwaukee's Westown neighborhood as Arin-Bert has opened its doors at 222 W. Wells St.
Arin-Bert, owned by Jivan Seifert, whose family also has a law firm in the building, serves Alterra coffee, pastries and sandwiches.
It's open Monday-Saturday, 6:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. and is located in a space that has seen several restaurants come and go including Finch's Corned Beef, Five Dollar Deli, Philly Way, Wingz and Amazon Pizza.
A life-long and passionate community leader and Milwaukeean, Jeff Sherman is a co-founder of OnMilwaukee.
He grew up in Wauwatosa and graduated from Marquette University, as a Warrior. He holds an MBA from Cardinal Stritch University, and is the founding president of Young Professionals of Milwaukee (YPM)/Fuel Milwaukee.
