Pricing:Lunch sandwiches and salads, $10-14; market bowls and burgers, $9-13
With two locations – its flagship in Shorewood and a storefront in Wauwatosa – the City Market Café and Bakehouse is a go-to for younger professionals craving a quick bite.
Whether it’s for brunch or a more traditional lunch, the cafe offers fresh-baked goods and house-made eats. Popular items on the menu include the breakfast wrap, which includes a sweet jalapeño dressing, and the cranberry turkey sandwich. Also top sellers are the large variety of bars, tortes, muffins, cookies, scones and bread made from scratch.
“Our café is a great place for people to have lunch and a meeting after,” said Nick Grafenauer, general manager of City Market’s Shorewood location. Most tables seat two to four, but there are several that comfortably seat eight.
Because the restaurant does not take reservations, some local business customers opt for take-out group orders.
