You can officially add another breakfast, lunch and brunch spot to your rotation! That's because Uncle Wolfie’s Breakfast Tavern is slated to reopen for dine-in service.

That's a pretty big deal. After all, it’s been 20 months since diners set foot inside the cozy, beautifully restored tavern space at 234 E. Vine St. in the Brewers Hill Neighborhood. But the breakfast and brunch restaurant will be reopening its doors for dine-in service beginning Friday, Nov. 19 at 8 a.m.

That means guests will be able to once again enjoy their menu of creative breakfast offerings (from Johnny cakes and breakfast burritos to seasonal offerings like sweet potato pie French toast) tasty salads and great sandwiches (including their memorable burgers), along with a full complement of unique beverages. View their full menu online.

In tandem with Uncle Wolfie’s reopening, Orang + Blue Co., the attached lifestyle boutique will also reopen for business, offering Milwaukeeans the chance once again to peruse their well-curated collection of products hand-made by female artisans.

For now, both businesses will be open Friday through Monday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Masks are required for all customers.
