Take Your Honey to the Honeypie Café

One of my favorite things to do is check out the individually owned restaurants around these parts. 

While chains are okay, there's something about discovering a cute little place with amazing food that is really exciting. Lucky for me my family digs this as well. Our most recent find? The Honeypie Café in Milwaukee.

It's located on Kinnickinnic Avenue (Kin-ick-in-nick - for those new around here) and it's small. That means you might wait to get in. But it's worth it! You betcha!

Honeypie is owned by people who own the Comet, also a Milwaukee classic (and featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives not too long ago). Both places have "Midwestern inspired food" which means comfort food with local ingredients. They like to say that it's the kind of food your grandma used to cook.

Both the Comet and Honeypie have an amazing bakery. (Which I enjoyed taking a picture of just cuz it's so pretty.)




It's got funky decorations that make you feel like you're in a little off the way place one minute and a cabin in the woods the next.



We had brunch there, which was fabulous. Before I eat I usually like to appreciate the beauty of the presentation:



I couldn't resist taking a picture of my honey in front of the Honeypie, too.

  2. I think smaller restaurants can have a difficult time in this economy (any small business can). Always fun when you find a nice spot like that! Sounds fun - always love a place with a unique atmosphere and fab food!!

    1. Yes, I'm always happy to see smaller restaurants surviving in a tough economy. I like a place that makes you feel happy just because it's fun and quirky and has great food.

  3. Honeypie Cafe is almost as fun to say as Kinnickinnic Avenue. It looks fun, too! I'd love to check out the restaurant, now that you've given it a hearty thumbs up, Cherie.
