7 best places to get brunch in Milwaukee area

Some people say it’s around 10 a.m. Others wait until the early-afternoon.


Mimosas or bloody Marys? Eggs Benedict or French toast? Saturday or Sunday?

When it comes to brunch, they’re all relevant questions that one might have about their hybrid meal, but one thing that is not at all unknown is that Milwaukee has an absolute abundance of brunch options.

Brick Pub Grill

“It’s a great place to get ready for the Packers’ game.”

That’s the advice from Brick Pub Grill waitress Emily Spector.

And that’s pretty much what brunch is for in Wisconsin, right? At least during the fall and winter. 

The Brick Pub Grill is located at 6343 N. Green Bay Ave., Glendale. The restaurant serves brunch from 9 a.m. to noon on Sundays with the menu including such things as skillets, omelettes, biscuits and gravy and pigs in a blanket.

The restaurant’s brunch cocktails include bloody marys, mimosas, man-mosas (beer and orange juice) and the signature Brick Me Up drink.

The Brick Pub Grill’s regular menu is not available during brunch, but becomes so right at noon.

Lumber Inn

A true favorite spot in the heart of Lake Country, the Lumber Inn brings breakfast, lunch, brunch and everything in between to its guests seven days a week.

“We have a fairly large menu for breakfast and brunch. Some of our more popular options are the Mexican skillet and our enchilada omelette,” Lumber Inn manager Raul Perez Jr. said.

The entirety of the Lumber Inn’s menu is available throughout its hours of 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the exception of the deep fryer, which is not turned on until 11 a.m. 

Bloody marys are a particularly popular option at the Lumber Inn and include a generous garnish of sausage, cheese and more.

The Lumber Inn is located in Delafield at 617 Wells St. For more information, go to www.lumberinndelafield.com or call 262-646-8988.

Ally’s Bistro

A lot of places offer brunch on Sundays, but not Saturdays. That can be disappointing if you need a delightful way to start the weekend.

Thanks to places like Ally’s, that dream is attainable.

Ally’s Bistro in Menomonee Falls, N72 W13350 Lund Lane, is the inverse of the aforementioned scenario with the restaurant serving up brunch all day Saturday, but being closed on Sundays.

The entirety of the establishment’s breakfast and lunch menus are available from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. with some particular favorites including a southwest breakfast wrap, tomato pesto breakfast panini, a breakfast BLT, including bacon jam and much more.

Another specialty is a French toast recipe cooked up by owner Rodney Zimmerman’s son Michael.

The Saturday all-day brunch-athon is a relatively new addition at Ally’s after Zimmerman decided to pivot away from being open late for dinner and drinks on Saturdays.

“It just fits who we are much better. Doing the breakfast all day thing seems to really be resonating very well with our guests,” Zimmerman said.

Mimosa’s

The name of this breakfast-only restaurant is not only an adult beverage but also a flower that grows in owner Apostoli Everniadis’s childhood home of Greece. Fresh and local is the theme for brunch at this Franklin restaurant located at 9405 S. 27th St. 

“We have taken a more wholesome and conscious approach to breakfast than other places in this area,” Everniadis said. “We use only local ingredients and we have a great relationship with farmers and local companies.”

Mimosa’s does not have a separate brunch menu, but Everniadis said they are considering a buffet for the future that would be a part of their menu on Sundays. Despite that fact when the local folks are asked where they like to go for brunch Mimosa’s was by far the most frequent answer.

Everniadis was born in Milwaukee to parents that ran restaurants and went to Greece when he was young before returning to the Milwaukee area to continue his family heritage in the restaurant business.

The restaurant is open seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call 414-574-5132 or head to the website at bit.ly/mimosasfranklin for additional information.

Bass Bay Brewhouse

If Supper Clubs are your thing, the folks at Bass Bay Brewhouse have created an updated version of that genre drawing a crowd for their brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday.

“We embody the feeling you get at a neighborhood bar placed in a casual restaurant with a supper club feel,” owner Ryan Oschmann said. “With the atmosphere and the view we pay tribute to the history of this place.”

Located on Bass Bay, an inlet of Big Muskego Lake at S79W15851 Aud Mar Dr. the view for diners is spectacular.

“We try to pursue simple concepts and to that do the best of our ability.” Oschmann said.

The brunch menu features an array of dishes that make it unique including the Chicken and the Egg made up of fried bird and a bowl of bacon and sausage called Shenanigans.

Call 414-377-9449 or head over to bassbaybrewhouse.com for more information.

Antigua

If you are you a fan of brunch and Latin food, but have not been able to find a place that combines the two, Antigua in West Allis has what you are looking for.

“People come to Antigua to make their mouths and hearts happy,” owner Citlali Mendieta said. “We are not the average brunch. We have a lot of unique dishes you won’t find at other brunches.”

This brunch happens each Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on special holidays like Easter, Mother’s Day and Black Friday.

The restaurant is located at 5823 W. Burnham St. and features Latin cakes, breakfast paella and a Venezuelan egg scrambler. The costs of the brunch dishes ranges from $10.95 to $24.95.

“We attract all kinds of foodies, including someone who likes a lot of flavor,” Mendieta said. “Once they try it, they are hooked. Give us a chance. We are more than the typical Mexican plate.”

Mendieta said Antigua can accommodate any diet restrictions for the brunch including gluten free and dairy free.

North Star American Bistro

Offering unique brunch menu items like crab-cake Benedict and apple-pie French toast made fresh in house is why the North Star American Bistro is a popular spot for brunch in Brookfield.

“We have a very diverse menu and everything is fresh, hot and delicious,” general manager Julia Pinter said. “Everything here is made in house and we can curtail our menu for whatever your (dietary) needs are.”

Located at 19115 W. Capitol Dr., North Sta’s brunch each Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The prices of the brunch menu range from $6.95 to $15.95 and they also offer a free kids meal for each two adult meals purchased.

Pinter said the freshly made entrees bring in people of all ages and the younger generation enjoys the build-your-own bloody Mary bar.

“Our brunch is definitely different and outstanding,” Pinter said. “We have families, folks coming from church, all kinds of people. Our demographic is people aged from 25 to 80.”
