Memorable Milwaukee Brunch Ideas
Historic hotels are known for serving amazing meals in elegant surroundings. Here are two unique options for a special breakfast.
- Ambassador Hotel The 1920s Art Deco elegance of the Ambassador hotel is just west of Marquette University in downtown Milwaukee. On Sundays from 10am to 3pm, the hotel’s Envoy restaurant offers and award-winning small plate, chef made to order brunch, with items like a crawfish etouffe benedict and belgian waffles.
- The Iron Horse Hotel opened in 2008, in a building that dates from 1907. The $29 price tag on the Great Northern Brunch at the hotel’s Smyth restaurant may initially seem steep, but it includes a lot: a full buffet, scratch-from-the-kitchen items, and three mimosas per person. With choices like house-smoked salmon and tiramisu pancakes, this is a great spot for a lengthy, celebratory breakfast.
