A new quick service pasta restaurant will offer new life to the former John Hawk's Pub space Downtown.
Dining month here at OnMilwaukee is sadly coming to a close - but like any good meal, let's wrap up with dessert! Here's the scrumptious sweet treats the OnMilwaukee staff savors long after their meals are over.
There are many non-chain coffee shops, but until last month, not one that was located on the far south end of Bay View. Until recently that is, when Gwenn Barker and Juliet Popovic opened Sprocket Cafe, 3385 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.
Cream City Swirl, 2663 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., opened on Sunday, April 20 - which was Easter - and owner Susan Nolan says it has been a whirlwind of excitement ever since.
Cream City Swirl, 2663 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., will open this fall. The new business will serve frozen yogurt, crepes and gelato.
When you think of gelato you might not think of Germany, but in a city with Teutonic roots like Milwaukee, maybe a gelateria with a German connection is perfect. La Coppa Artisan Gelato, located at Bayshore Town Center, is a partnership between Brookfield's Art Sawall and two Italian brothers - Maurizio and Alfredo Lincetto, who have a small chain of La Coppa gelaterias around the Munich area.
Sweettrio is a Grafton shop specializing in the sweet trio of chocolate, caramel apples and gelato. Although most of its business is corporate gift packages and Internet shipping, owners Christine Steeno and Nedra Clague also provide a fun, family-friendly store in which to shop.

OK, I made that last stat up, but we sure do love our frozen dairy.
In 1946, three brothers opened an Italian grocery business on Brady Street called Glorioso Brothers. It remained in the same space until last December, when the business moved across the street to 1020 E. Brady St.

The chocolate shop adjacent to Alterra Coffee and Locker's Florist in the Locker's Square development at 9125 W. North Ave. in Wauwatosa has shed its relationship with Dutch, family-owned chocolatier Stam.
As the rain came down last night and the temperature dropped into the 40s, it felt like the perfect night for a hot chocolate and where better than the new Chocolaterie Stam in the Locker's Pointe development at 92nd and North, right?
With a family tradition of chocolate that dates back to 1817 Holland, Chocolaterie Stam arrives in Milwaukee nearly a century after the company came to America.
