Hey guys - I found out I'm going to be in Milwaukee for a 3 day convention in June. Does anyone know of good espresso/coffee in Milwaukee these days? I read about Anodyne coffee but haven't seen anything else that was recent and one thing said Espresso Cristoph was closed.
I figure someone on here might live in the Milwaukee area and you can direct me to the best place to go. I'll be staying downtown at the Days Inn, and the convention is being held at Miller Park.
Thanks! :)

(oh if anyone else out there is a foodie too, I'll take advice on where to eat. Any good Asian cuisine in Milwaukee? Thai, Korean, or Vietnamese preferably.. ? :)

Jessie,
Yes, would definately recommend Anodyne.  Try their new location near downtown:  224 W Bruce St.  This is where they moved their roasting and is a very large nice location just south of downtown in the Walker's Point area.  There are a lot of good restuants in this area that I would recommend, unfortunately not Asian:
Ginger--excellent Tapas; LaMarenda--also excellent Tapas, and Odd Duck.
Up near the other Anodyne location is a great French restuant: Pastiche Bistro and Wine Bar on Kinnickinnic.

Also, there is a smaller roaster in Milwaukee that recently opened a cafe:  Valentine Coffee, 5918 W Vliet Street.  There is a very good resturant across the street:  Meritage.  Its not Asian, but it is excellent.

Last coffee place.  It has not opened yet, but it is downtown and is being built and should open soon.  I think it will be called Upright Coffee and will be in the Flatiron Building, 1550 N Water Street.  When I try it out I'll let you know if it is any good.

Almost forgot.  There is a fantastic Chinese resturant in the 3rd ward area next to downtown.  I took a good friend who is a big foodie, and he thought it was the best Chinese food he had ever had:  Jing's, 207 E Buffalo St.   Ask the owner Jing what to order.

thank you, rbh1515! Your information is very helpful, I'm writing it all down now.
I LOVE tapas style restaurants,  I didn't mean to sound like I only wanted Asian food, but it is a favorite of mine (and usually not super expensive) hehe. So I will definitely keep your suggestions in mind.  

Let me know when that new coffee shop opens and what you think! I might just have to try a couple of them. Of course, I will also be making the jaunt down to Chicago and going to Intelligentsia after the convention weekend is over. :)

For Chicago, definitely try Intelligensia near Millenium Park.  If you need a nice hotel down there, stay at the Burnham Hotel.  Its about 2 blocks from the Millenium Park Intelligentsia and is a very old historic hotel (if you have read the Devil in the White City by Eric Larson you will know the hotel--must read for Chicago history and my favorite book).  Also, must go to Metropolis Coffee.

Ah yes we spend a good 3 or 4 hours at Intelligentsia every time we're in Chicago ;)  I HAVE always wanted to try Metropolis though, and now I think I DEFINITELY will. Actually, I had a friend asking where online is good to order espresso from... I should tell her to get some Redline!  Their prices are a lot more reasonable too... I'm kind of annoyed at how much more expensive Intelligentsia has gotten even just since I started going there, which was maybe 5 yrs ago or so. I mean, come on! They don't even sell their coffee by the lb anymore, it's 12 oz! I hate that.

Rob, the Burnham Hotel sounds awesome but I'm not made of money HAHA! We're staying in Milwaukee anyway, just planning on shooting down to Chicago for the evening one night. As far as restaurants in Chicago we have a list too long to ever conquer...  :) My friend read Devil in the White City and I wanted to read it but haven't yet..
