MILWAUKEE — When you have good coffee, the people will come. Interval Coffee at 1600 North Jackson on the lower East Side has a cool vibe inside and excellent coffee.

"We are so lucky we have some of the coolest regulars and the coolest customer base I think, which makes conversation really easy,” says barista Olivia Molter. “So many of us have formed personal relationships with people who are regulars or just customers."

Inside this hidden gem, you'll find a sleek, modern look that almost makes you feel like you're at home in your own kitchen. They've won awards for their espresso and their coffee selection is pretty unique.

"Right now it's pumpkin spice season," Molter says. “The minute that we put that on the menu we've sold more of that than practically anything else. We're doing a lot of maple lattes right now as well. That's one of our autumn drinks. Otherwise, cold brew is one of the bigger things that we do. We have it on tap."

They've decided not to let people inside just yet because of the pandemic, but we ran into some people that were fine with waiting outside for a cup of java. They’ve also added brunch.

"We just started having the brunch menu seven days a week,” Molter explains. “Really exciting. We’re mostly doing tartines, kind of like an open-spaced sandwich. It's all on rye sourdough made in-house. We’re trying to do everything from scratch. Right now, a pretty popular tartine is the blueberry tartine."
