Blue's Egg is one of Milwaukee's most beloved restaurants, period. So it's no surprise that it nabbed the top spot for the city's best brunch. Monkey bread, omelettes and cherry wood bacon are just a few of the brunch menu's treasured, scrumptious offerings that turn first-time customers into repeat customers.
The wait is usually long, but the attentive staff is quick to serve customers their Bloody Marys or mimosas to pass the time. The hour-long wait is worth it, though. Blue's Egg has only lost the "Best Breakfast" category once, way back in 2014. It's the real deal. And if you're still bitter about the hustle and bustle, good news – there's a second Blue's Egg potentially hatching in Shorewood soon.
OnMilwaukee editor's pick: Simple Cafe
Lori Fredrich's pick: Sabrosa Cafe & Gallery
This one goes to the new kid on the Bay View block. In fact, if you haven’t been to Sabrosa Cafe & Gallery, you need to put it on your list. This cozy spot has won me over, not only with its pillowy blueberry pancakes and gorgeously plated entrees, but also with classic Mexican breakfast options that go beyond the usual breakfast fare. Pair that with great, refreshing drinks, good coffee and some of the quaintest little digs in the city, and you’ve got a winning combination.
