I was recently reminded that "cash is king" at a number of local businesses, including some I visit frequently.
Molly wrote this story on "cash only" businesses last year that discussed why some may not take your plastic, and I fully understand why a business may choose to stay "cash only." However, Iâ€™m still slightly annoyed when I encounter one that I may have forgotten about, so that is where this list may come up handy.
Be sure to add any I may have missed below in the talkbacks, or chime in via social media and I will update the list. Here are seven places that take cash only:
- The Soup House
324 E. Michigan St., (414) 277-7687
One of my favorites for lunch, The Soup House offers a bunch of different soups daily, along with a chunk of delicious bread.
- Lalliâ€™s Pizza
8826 W. North Ave., Wauwatosa, (414) 774-9838
This classic Tosa pizzera is right next to Club Tap, so you can wait for your pizza next door with a tap of beer.
- Oakland Gyros
2867 N. Oakland Ave., (414) 963-1393
This "after bar" pick is cash-only after midnight. Hopefully, you have some moolah left after your night out.
- Stonefly Brewery
755 E. Center St., (414) 212-8910
Riverwest staple Stonefly Brewery went cash-only a few years back. A great live music venue, as well a popular brunch spot for locals.
1800 E. Arlington Pl., (414) 276-7101
Oh, Jamoâ€™s. This corner tap meets lounge may conjure another time or era, where cash really was king. However, the great cocktails and Delirium on tap are worth making sure you have some cash on you.
- Johnâ€™s Sandwich Shop
8913 W. North Ave., Wauwatosa, (414) 257-9347
Johnâ€™s focuses on fresh and healthy options, and delicious ones at that. Grab a seat at the counter and order a malt while you're at it. This cash-only spot doesnâ€™t have an ATM, so you canâ€™t even pay a ridiculous $5 fee to get your own money to pay on-site.
- Three Brothers
2414 S. St. Clair St., Milwaukee,Â (414) 481-7530
This Serbian gem is worth keeping cash in your wallet for. Get the goulash!Â
