Cafe La Paloma coming to Walker's Point

Cafe La Paloma, a new Mexican restaurant in Walker’s Point, will soon open at 606 S. 5th St. – across the street from La Fuente.

Owner Jose Chavez is hoping for a mid-May opening. The menu items will be from numerous regions of Mexico and many of the recipes are Chavez’s own.

He says the restaurant will be more like Riverwest’s Cafe Corazon and Brady Street’s Cempazuchi than the other Mexican restaurants in the neighborhood.

Chavez, who is an artist of many different mediums, plans to showcase his collection of more than 70 Mexican masks inside the restaurant. It will also have a "Day of the Dead" theme and will feature his own art as well.

"It will not have serapes or sombreros," says Chavez.

Chavez moved to Milwaukee in 1993 from the state of Michoacán in Mexico. He received a masters in business from Marquette and is a life-long artist who has curated the Walker’s Point Center of the Art’s Dias de los Muertos show for the past three years.

Stay tuned to for more information when it becomes available.

"No serapes or sombreros." Hurray! Mexico is so much more than those American cliches. BTW, the state is spelled "Michoacan."
