A foodie’s mecca awaits in Milwaukee’s backyard. That’s right – Wauwatosa, a quaint, history-rich destination, has a wonderfully diverse dining and food-maker scene that can round out any trip to the Greater Milwaukee area.


Casually Cool

Wauwatosa is an easy town to get around in and has some easy dining to match. Try Leff’s Lucky Town for a giant pretzel and wings while you cheer on your favorite sports team, or BelAir Cantina for a pineapple ginger margarita and tacos. Kin by Rice and Roll  offers delicious Thai and Japanese fare in a casual, yet chic setting wher e you must try the potato korokke and crispy duck salad. A short walk from Kin would take you to Café Hollander and Buckatabon Tavern & Supper Club  two very different, yet delicious spots featuring Wauwatosa’s best patios.


Coffee Lovers, Rejoice!

If you're in need of a caffeine boost, Wauwatosa has plenty of options for locally roasted coffee served up in quirky, only-in-Milwaukee-style cafes. Try Colectivo Coffee with multiple Wauwatosa locations for bold roasts and inventive espresso drinks, or Anodyne Coffee Roasting Co., which serves up smooth, caramelly roasts in a cozy chic setting. Vendetta Coffee Bar, the newest addition to Wauwatosa’s coffee scene, offers traditional Italian espresso drinks that will transport your senses right back to the old country.
