Since opening in June 2018 in Elm Grove, Zisters has gotten busier by the month, serving up brunch to locals. While it’s a popular spot for weekend warriors, it also brings in a business crowd during the week.

The restaurant boasts quick service, custom-blend Hawaiian-sourced coffee, and an aesthetic and modern décor that’s appropriate for a small lunch meeting or individual workspace.

“People take advantage of that when they’re meeting somebody in a professional setting,” said Betsi Zierath, who operates the restaurant with her sister Gabbi – hence the restaurant’s name. It’s one of three restaurants owned by their family’s business, Zierath Restaurant Group.

The concept was inspired by their travels throughout Southeast Asia.

Zisters’ outdoor patio is being improved to make diners “feel like they’re on vacation,” said Zierath.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, Zierath Restaurant Group has temporarily limited operations at Zisters and its other two restaurants to carryout only.
