The Landing Food & Spirits likes to boast that they’re so great that the state built an airport next to them. Regardless of why it actually happened, the restaurant is a haven for casual nights out in the shadow of small planes. Gaggles of friends settle onto red and wooden barstools or surround tables to grab slices of pizza or dive into beer-side nibbles of sour cream and chive fries. Along the walls, pinball machines, a foosball table, and video arcade games fire up healthy competition as the occasional live band croons from a small stage in the corner. Guests match wits during Monday-night trivia, and feast at the Friday-night fish fry—a great way to entertain visiting relatives or pet grizzly bears.
You'll never find canned tomatoes or a pre-made pizza crust in the kitchen at Valentina's Pizzeria, where the staff prides itself on the ingredients it makes in-house every day, from the freshly grated cheese to the sauce mixed with herbs straight from the garden. Owner Greg Steele oversees the crafting of a menu filled with a selection of pizzas, calzones, and subs as well as sides such as eggplant fries and cheese bread.
Work is a four-letter word at Off The Clock Bar & Grill, where guests fresh from punching out for the day gather to sip on local beers and cheer on the Brewers, Packers, Badgers, and Bucks. Boneless or bone-in wings coated in 15 homemade sauces—from sweet barbecue to fiery garlic—fuel the more gregarious celebrations, which are sometimes sparked by the sports teams and sometimes by a lengthy beer list headlined by selections from New Glarus, Lakefront, and Rogue breweries.
Though known for its traditional pub staples, Off The Clock throws the occasional curveball; check out the macaroni and cheese, which turns a familiar dish on its head with a hint of dijon and a crust of potato chips and parmesan on top. The restaurant also makes its own italian sausages, which may appear in sandwiches served with marinara and mozzarella or as a topping on a specialty or build-your-own pizza.

The owners of Sven's Café pride themselves on being ahead of their time—when Steve Goretzko and his business partner George Voglis began roasting in 1989, they were among the first in Wisconsin to specialize in fair-trade and organic coffee. After Sven’s Organic Coffee Company began to take off, Goretzko decided to open Sven’s Café in Bay View; eventually, he added another location in downtown Milwaukee.
Goretzko hails from Berlin, and Sven’s Café has a decidedly European feel; baristas use Probot and Gothot German roasters to brew fresh java, for example. Sven’s coffee beans hail from the world over, harvested in far-flung locales including Africa, Indonesia, South America, Hawaii, and the moon. The café also serves breakfast sandwiches, paninis, salads, and soups.
