Milwaukee Brunch Reviews
Driving into the Village of Wauwatosa on State Street, one gets a sense of how this suburb of Milwaukee absorbs the best the city has to offer (food, shops, neighborhood) and blends it with the friendliness and charm of a small Wisconsin town. Opening a second location of this Eastside staple, Café Hollander blends in nicely to the surrounding neighborhood of the Village. I have visited this restaurant on several different occasions for different meals. Brunch, of course, has been my favorite.
Our server came to check up on us and take Andrea's drink order soon after she was seated. He also described to us the special of the day, a breakfast burrito, and asked if we were ready to order. Having not seen Andrea for almost a year, we needed some time to catch up and look over the menu some more. This was probably our mistake, because then it seemed that we were "out of the rotation" of the server. It took him a little longer than we would have liked to come back to take our order. However, we made the most of it, and just got back to talking.
Chorizo sausage mixed with rosemary roasted potatoes and two eggs wrapped in a flour tortilla topped with a spicy red sauce and mild white sauce. The rosemary potatoes were a nice compliment to the chorizo sausage. The creamy white sauce blended the flavors together with the red sauce adding a touch of heat at the end.
If you an avid brunch fan and are looking for a restaurant that takes brunch to the next level, Café Hollander is must. For a total of about $16 per person, it's worth every flavorful bite. The Tosa Village location offers plenty of parking and, in our case, a great place to meet up with friends. I would highly recommend Café Hollander to those that are a looking for a nice change of pace.
Until next time, hope you have a great week and look forward to seeing you next weekend morning!
