Normally at this time of year, we'd be pulling out all the stops for Let’s Brunch MKE, our annual sell-out brunch bash which brings together restaurants with people across the city for a brunch buffet like no other. 

But this year – with the safety of both attendees and restaurant staff at the fore – we are forgoing our live sampling event in favor of an equally delicious option that offers you the opportunity to save cash while supporting local restaurants and enjoying delicious dishes ALL YEAR LONG.

Let’s Eat MKE is a digital coupon book which builds on technology created by local company, ezBuzz, to create a safe, way for participants to enjoy more than 20 of Milwaukee’s hottest restaurants. And you can get yours starting today.

The digital dining book is $39.99 and contains coupons for $10 off a minimum purchase of $25 at participating restaurants (that's a savings of over $200). The digital coupons are valid for ONE YEAR, giving you plenty of time to eat at some of your favorite restaurants (and hopefully a few new ones) for less. The even bigger bonus is that you’ll be helping our restaurant community at the same time. We'll  be donating 10% from each coupon book to the Serve. Taste. Give. campaign.


Once you purchase the Let's EAT MKE pack, redeeming each digital voucher is simple, contact-free and good for either dine-in or carry-out at the following restaurants: 

  • On the Bus
  • Blue Bat Kitchen & Tequilaria
  • Build-a-Breakfast/Build-a-Burger
  • Tricicolo Peru
  • Black Sheep
  • Onesto
  • Proof Pizza at Saint Kate
  • Fixture Pizza Pub
  • Smoke Shack
  • Three Lions Pub
  • Red Lion Pub
  • Pete’s Pub
  • Explorium Brew Pub 
  • Third Street Tavern
  • Don’s Diner
  • Gyro MKE
  • Mecca Sports Bar
  • MobCraft
  • Fresh Fin Poke
  • AJ Bombers
  • Who's on Third

Ultimately, Let's EAT MKE is a great way to continue to support local restaurants in a safe, enjoyable way that saves you money at the same time. Order your Let's Eat MKE book now.

Pro Tip: Don't forget to add wine, cocktails or mocktails to your order to bolster the bottom line for restaurants during this extremely challenging time. Here's why ordering drinks helps.
