Blue Plate Special
jok, if you like Polish food, check out Polonez in St. Francis (right next to Cudahy). 4016 S. Packard Ave.
Leon’s custard is fairly close by as well. 3131 S. 27th St. I’m not claiming it’s the best custard in Milwaukee (a local will have to persuade you) but it’s very good and the atmosphere is great. Here’s an article with a photo: http://www.villagevoice.com/nyclife/0525,sietsema,65170,15.html
If you need to de-grease (I know…blasphemy), stop in the Milwaukee Public Depot at breakfast time. There’s a good coffee place and a good bakery in there. I do that frequently before I get back to stuffing my face at Jake’s for lunch. http://www.milwaukeepublicmarket.com
