Haymarket and Wauwatosa
Raw-focused juice bar and cafe with two locations
Health food lovers will feel very at home at Urban Beets, a comfortable cafe offering breakfast and lunch fare that serves as much raw food as possible. Lots of items are gluten free or soy free, or can be made that way. Smoothie bowls filled with acai, turmeric, and chia are the norm for breakfast, while corned beets make up a Reuben and a housemade walnut, oat, and black bean burger puts Impossible to shame.
Vegan counter service restaurant inside Sherman Phoenix
Located inside Sherman Phoenix, a food hall and mixed-use space to support the surrounding community of color affected by the riots a few years ago, The Next Level Vegans offers some well, next level vegan shit. Have you ever craved a vegan seafood boil? Watch their specials. How about vegan versions of peppersteak, gyros, or crab cakes? They got you covered. It doesn't hurt that their prices are reasonable and they make their fries from scratch, too.
Emporium of encased meats and bourbon
Vegetarians and vegans generally don't get a lot of sausage options, but that's a real travesty here in Milwaukee, land of the brat. So Vanguard made it a mission to make both carnivores and veggie heads happy. There are four vegan sausage options, including red curry and chorizo, and they get styled with toppings like chimichurri, sweet potato puree, and vegan cheese whiz. Baked potato balls, kimchi loaded fries, and a long list of bourbons make everyone happy.
