I'm an avid reader of OnMilwaukee.com. And there are all these spots poppin up on my radar now thanks to them that I have a hankering to try. Barnacle Bud's... best hidden gem of 2011 (so they say). Have you been? I'm always game for seafood, so that's on the radar. Not sure if they've announced this year's best brunch (or breakfast?) but last year Blue Egg was on the list... ever been?
Let me speak for a second about what I do know. Best pizza went to Zaffiro's. YUP! Them and Lisa's are my two favorites. If you love pizza and you're not on the east side, you are in the wrong spot my friend. Best comfort food went to Maxies. I've been there two or three times and I LOVE IT. A few runner-ups: Comet, Honeypie, and Palomino. Gotta get my butt to all of those. Most importantly, best coffee - ALTERRA!!!!! Coffee is by far the most important thing in the world. It just is. And they have the tastiest sandwiches and yeah, the greatest coffee (especially the best espresso) I've ever tasted. What qualifies me? I went to college in the coffee capital of the world: Seattle. They've got good stuff out there but Peets, Tully's, and all the other Northwest chains... Alterra is the best in the nation.
Ok, enough. If you have any spots that come to mind that you say I haven't lived until I've tried 'em... please click comment, thank you!!!
