Eggcited Mr. Pfister

A Milwaukee icon, classic brunch, and great company.

Built in 1893, The Pfister is known by many as one of the most beautiful hotels in Milwaukee. It's luxury at its finest, with gorgeous architecture and Victorian art in abundance. When you're there, you feel as though it is a historical experience...and possibly a supernatural one as well. It is rumored that ghosts hold residence in this historical establishment.

This weeks brunch was at Cafe at the Pfister, one of several dining options within the hotel. It's a full service restaurant, as well as patisserie and barista counter. The expectations for the ambiance are definitely high when you see this amazing hotel. While the restaurant is cute and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it, it did feel a little bland. There is something "plain Jane" about the space and it lacked that wow factor the rest of the hotel has.

Now, onto the really important stuff, the food. 10/10 would eat again. The menu is classic and traditional, but the dishes are done just right. While I love unique and original creations, there is something to be said for classic dishes that are perfected. The cafe takes menu items such as eggs benedict, tomato soup and french toast, bringing great flavor to every bite. And oh the hollandaise sauce....mmmmmmm. Again, 10/10. AND, the hash browns. I love me some potatoes. In any shape or form, potatoes are my jam. Cafe at the Pfister is where to go if you want a delicious traditional brunch. As the saying goes, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

10/10 you should go.
