Papas Bakery is close to the Hilton Garden Inn and convenient for breakfast. However, the lady working the counter and assisting did not seem particularly interested in providing friendly service. There is also minimum seating with two small round tables and four white metal chairs....More

We enjoyed a breakfast stop with some local friends; it looks like your ordinary quirky little bakery and coffee shop with a local bent - but the pastries are world class. Cinnamon rolls and sticky buns made from buttery brioche dough - wow! Impressed with...More

All the bread I've tried has been perfect. They also make great soups, some vegetarian. You'd be hard pressed to find a better baker anywhere in the Midwest. The fact that they do it with organic ingredients makes it that much more special.

Quaint, friendly, inviting, neighborly, welcoming. These are words that describe the atmosphere of the Amaranth Bakery. Forget Starbucks. This is the real deal. Wonderful, authentic food.

This is one of Milwaukee's best bakeries. The bread, pecan rolls, croissants, and Kouign Amann are all wonderful but I am becoming addicted to the scones -- all of them, no matter what the flavor. There is a small but excellent lunch menu and great...More
