MILWAUKEE — Would you like a beer with your breakfast? A Milwaukee breakfast tavern owner hopes that is the case.

Milwaukeean Wolfgang Schaefer created the eatery, which opened Monday, according to our news partner, the Milwaukee Business Journal.

Uncle Wolfie's Breakfast Tavern, 234 E. Vine St., is basing its breakfast fare around beer.

“My favorite liquid to drink is beer and my favorite things to eat is food with eggs on it,” Schaefer previously told the Milwaukee Business Journal. “I’m a simple man.”

Schaefer, who has two decades of experience in hospitality and previously served as director of education at Anodyne Coffee Roasting Co., plans to have his business open daily.

The establishment, in the Brewers Hill neighborhood, is scheduled to be open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Guests can visit on Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Uncle Wolfie’s is part of a dual concept. Schaefer’s wife, Whitney, operates a boutique in the same building called Orange and Blue Co. It has been operating in the building for about 18 months.

Whitney Schaefer described the restaurant as a family-oriented, modern diner that serves classic American food.

“All of our dishes are really thoughtful, and we put a lot of love into them,” she told the Milwaukee Business Journal.
