Svens European Cafe
Sven's owner, Steve Gorutzko, started roasting coffee in 1989 when he partnered with George Voglis in West Allis, WI. Soon the partners moved the coffee roasting operation to Butler, WI after rapid growth. Soon after, Sven's Organic Coffee Co. was started with special attention given to fair trade and organic coffee. It is said that Sven's was the first in Wisconsin to specialize in fair trade and organic coffees. Sven's coffee can be found in supermarkets and cafA(C)s throughout the mid-west. After several successful years of operating our coffee roasting business, we decided to open our own cafA(C) in Bay View, WI. Sven's CafA(C) is a true European CafA(C) Experience much like that of Steve's hometown of Berlin, Germany. Sven's roasts coffee the old world way, using Probot and Gothot German roasters that roast 60 - 130 lbs. of coffee at a time. We buy only top quality beans to roast and are happy to share our experience in coffee with everyone. We put our many years of experience in each and every cup of coffee.
Sven's Cafe is the best cafe in Milwaukee. Their beverages are the best in town. The food is excellent. The ambiance is great. It has an old world feel and not a sterile corporate atmosphere. The prices are reasonable too. The walls are covered with original works of art. The staff including the owner are very helpful.
Friendly, attentive staff, even Steve the owner can be found chatting away with the customers.
The best food ever. Have a breakfast bagel with coffee, a giant salad with a vitamin water, or a grilled panini with a smoothie, among other wonderous inventions; but the magnum opus of the menu is the Materhorn club sandwich.
Awesome selection of gormet teas and rich coffees.
Internet station, reservations taken for meetings and parties. Perfect place to study (which I do) if you dont mind Prince staring at you... (do not look directly at the chest hair.) To conclude: better than anything else anywhere.
I was really surprised. Atmosphere is awesome....food is wonderful...coffee drinks better than any other coffee place I have been It's a real treat to go here. Best kept secret in the Bay View Area by far.
