Progressive eastside coffee shop and cafe with vegan baked goods from Compassionate Cakes
This is Milwaukee's first and only 100% fair trade coffee shop (although the Riverwest Co-op Cafe is also fair-trade). It's volunteer-run and headed up by a passionate and dedicated human/civil rights activist so there's always political brochures and posters hanging around. It's a cute shop with tables, chairs, and couches, plus gorgeous paintings and photographs. Nearly all the bakery is vegan (it's from East Side Ovens) and they also have vegan soups, sandwiches, and snacks. They sporadically do brunch items on the weekend (when they have enough volunteers) and have plenty of vegan options then.
