The City Market in Wauwatosa

By | September 5, 2010

City Market on UrbanspoonI’ve been enjoying the food at The City Market in Wauwatosa for quite some time now and, to be honest, I’m not sure why I didn’t post up a review sooner. Regardless of the time it took me to post this, I’ve decided to finally post a review.

I ate lunch there today for the countless time and, as always, I enjoyed it. There is a wide range of food to choose from at very reasonable prices. If you find yourself at City Market early in the day, their egg scramble is always a good choice and you can put a wide assortment of different food in to it (but be aware, more than two items costs more). Otherwise they have a wide range of sandwiches, soups, and other entrées to choose from. If you’re a true Wisconsinite, like myself, then their Mac & Cheese is highly recommended will full but wanting more. Even if you aren’t looking to gorge yourself with an entire meal, they make a wide assortment of fancy coffee drinks, or just regular coffee if that’s your style, and have a great bakery to match. For about a third of the year, they even offer outdoor seating right on their patio overlooking North Avenue.

Just about the only complaint that I ever have when eating at City Market is the seating. If you’re there at a peak time it can be a daunting task to find an available table and if you’re there with a large group, they only have one table capable of seating more than about five. During these busy times, you will without fail also find a single hipster sitting alone with his or her laptop at a table for four while your party of four can only find an open table for two.

Regardless of the seating issues that they sometimes have, it is still worth a trip and is always a great destination to meet friends or family for a nice breakfast, brunch, or lunch.

    One of my favorite places to meet w/my writer friends — eat, have coffee, discuss writing, have more coffee, discuss reading, have more coffee…… it’s a great place!

    food is really good over the city market but crowd and the ambiance itself makes it a little bit awkward..its better to get a take out and enjoy those stuff in other places..
