Don’s Diner & Cocktails | Milwaukee, Wisconsin


Coming soon, in the Third Ward’s Marshall Building, our favorite food truck is getting a permanent storefront. Maybe you’ve seen Press out and about in their cute, vintage camping trailer, Jane. She’s an adorable little camper, decked out as their food truck; You can’t miss her with her hashtag-like logo of a waffle “pressed” onto the side of the trailer.

If you’ve not tried Press yet, you’ll want to check out their Marshall Building location which will be opening this Spring. While trailer Jane only offers their selection of delectable waffles, their storefront will be offering waffles in addition to sandwiches and soups. We cannot wait. I love supporting other local, small businesses so if you’re like me and can’t wait for their new storefront you can track down Jane on the Press website or follow Press Waffles on Instagram. (Warning: their Instagram is beautiful and WILL make you hungry and it is all created by yours truly (me, Ren Lenhof, of Studio 29 Photography)!

Mac Shack

We love casual convenience and yummy food; Milwaukee’s new Mac Shack promises to be all that topped with cheesy goodness. Their menu will feature five different noodle choices to choose from including cauliflower as a noodle substitution! It looks like it will have a similar vibe to Noodles and Co, with made to order options, delivery availability and a family friendly atmosphere. They’ll serve local craft beer and also have hot dogs and chili on their menu. They don’t have a local website yet, but we will update you as soon as they do! Here is a local news story, for now. 

Tavern at Turner Hall

If you’re in the mood for a sit down restaurant with a little bit more of a “date night” feel the new Tavern at Turner Hall might be the one you want to try. They’re located right across the street from Fiserv Forum and is the perfect spot to grab a drink or meal before you see a show. They have a wide variety of things on their menu from burgers and sandwiches to wings. It has a sports bar feel to it with a line of dart boards and pool tables available to play while you enjoy their excellent happy hour specials. You can see what events they have going on their Instagram account.

Don’s Diner & Cocktails

Supporting local farmers, great interior design, and offering delicious menu options makes Don’s Diner & Cocktails a winner in our book! Their menu features unique & instagram worthy Ice Cream & S’mores Cocktails, decadent dinner & brunch options, and the best Martini lunch deal in the city! Don’s Diner & Cocktails serves weekend brunches, weekday lunch and dinner, reservations OR getting there early is recommended!
