tastes of milwaukee

One of the best things about going to school close to home, besides the easy access to free laundry, is that my mother loves to take me out to lunch.  My mom and I went back in time to Watts Tea Room, her favorite childhood restaurant my great-grandmother would take her to.  We enjoyed delicious chicken salad sandwiches and an amazing chocolate coconut torte.  Milwaukee ladies, I recommend bringing your mother here for a cute, inexpensive, bonding experience.

 fyi: this cake was bigger at one point.
gorgeous place setting that a bride-to-be had on their gift registry.

  2. All of this food looks so good!! High noon tea get togethers are the best!! Stop by and tell me what you think of my latest!


  3. Watts is wonderful. The tea room serves delicious food and the portions are not small. You will notice a number of men among ladies who lunch.
