Tasty cafe and fun shop!
Posted on 01 / 12 / 2014
This is kind of the vegan/vegetarian mainstay in Milwaukee - if you mention you're veg to someone in the greater Milwaukee area, they say "oh, have you been to Beans and Barley?" The food is good, but not necessarily the best in the city - their desserts are great, though, especially the cakes (they also have big cookies from East Side Ovens, try the chocolate mint one, mmmm). My favorite order is the tofu burger; their veggie chili is also really good, and they usually have at least one other vegan soup. The deli counter is great if you're looking for something quick to take away, and everything is labeled as vegan/vegetarian/non-veg. The grocery/shop part is also really fun, and has good veg staples (vegan mayo, different vegan milks, soy/almond ice cream, etc) and treats (candy, chocolates).
Fun shops, Big menu, Great deli counter
Long wait at times (brunch)
