Excellent coffee, and of course they have soymilk. The espresso drinks are just amazing here.

This is probably one of the most pleasant locations in Milwaukee. It's right on the lake, has a huge patio, free outdoor music, and great tea (and coffee I'm sure, I just don't drink coffee). Alterra is located in an old pumping station historic building and they've done a great job preserving it.

I went here for a free summer salsa concert a few weeks ago and had a really great time. The patio was packed, as was the entire lawn area around the building, with everyone set up on blankets and lawn chairs. I'm sure they make a ton of money at this event but I'm glad they don't charge to attend.

I then went back a few days later to join a friend for tea. I tried the blueberry roibus, which was very good but I'm not enough of a tea expert to provide a deeper description. My friend and I also shared the louisiana tofu wrap, which had beans, veggies, and all sorts of goodness, including a slightly spicy dipping salsa.
