Milwaukee Brunch Reviews
Heading south on South First Street, Transfer sits near the beginning of Kinnikinnick and Mitchell Streets. The original stained-glass windows for the pharmacy are still present and are a great reminder of the golden age of this area of the city. Upon immediately walking into the space, you notice the u-shaped bar, original artwork and beautifully restored interior.
This morning I was meeting my friend, Sara, and her friend, Amy. Sara had joined me at Brocach for brunch before, and Amy follows me on Twitter. (Side note: if you are planning a wedding, you need to check out her blog: Little Miss Wedding Planner. Great info!)
I ordered my usual (coffee, mimosa ($6) and water). I had to wait a little longer than I would have liked for the mimosa and coffee to come, and even the server, Kristina brought out our waters right before we ordered. My mimosa was delicious. A nice mix of sweet and tangy with no pulp.
Step away from the normal brunch and transfer to something different, Transfer Pizzeria and Cafe. For less than $15 per person with a drink special, Transfer has come out of the gate running with their brunch menu. Also, Transfer makes every effort to use local organic produce when in season. Their supplier is only an hour north of Milwaukee and supplies the restaurant with a wide range of organic products when in season. But, don't wait until June to stop in for their brunch! Located near the border of Walker's Point and Bayview, be prepared for street parking.
Until next weekend, have a great week and happy brunching!
