Double down on action-packed excitement at The Temporary by American Place. The Midwest’s hottest new casino, less than an hour south of Milwaukee!

More delicious things are on their way to 3rd Street Market Hall, 275 W. Wisconsin Ave.

Yummy Bowl will join the growing slate of vendors at the Downtown food hall in the next few months, bringing home-style meals to the table packaged in convenient bowl form.

Owned and operated by Anita and Gary Gray, Yummy Bowl launched in June of 2022, debuting their first bowls at the Whitefish Bay Farmers Market.  In the months ahead, food hall patrons will find the new vendor in the hawker stall location which formerly housed Middle East Side.

Anita Gray says that Yummy Bowl aspires to offer comforting fare paired with excellent customer service and a fun environment that’s appealing to diners of all ages.

On the Yummy Bowl menu, guests will find a variety of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner including house favorites like the Original YumMorning Bowl featuring scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese (optional), a choice of bacon or sausages (pork or turkey) and a fluffy Belgian waffle topped with powdered sugar.

There will also be bowls like their Cajun style YumBalaya Bowl,  chicken and waffles, macaroni and cheese and a traditional fish fry on Fridays.

Gray says they can’t wait to establish a location and share their bowls with more people Downtown.

“We are excited to join the 3rd Street Market Hall,” she notes. “This fun, family friendly environment is the perfect location for Yummy Bowl to showcase our delicious food and interact with our customers.”
