Milwaukee, WI Edition: Miss Katie's Diner

Miss Katie's Diner

Miss Katie's Diner borders on "touristy," but that label means nothing to me if the food is good. The diner has a '50s theme and has been around for 25 years.

Miss Katie's Diner

It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and has been known to be frequented by celebrities. President Clinton and then-German Chancellor Helmut Kohl in 1996; Rachel Ray featured the diner's breakfast in Food Channel's $40 Dollars a Day; Hillary Clinton stopped by in 2008; Henry Winkler in 2008 (there's a bronze Fonz statue in downtown Milwaukee); Michelle Obama visited in 2010.

Miss Katie's DinerAnd the table we were seated at had a plaque that said "Party Host(ess)" was filmed at that table Nov. 4, 1999. No clue what that means.

Miss Katie's DinerOur waitress was a bit sassy, and I loved it. The menus are pretty straightforward with eggs, omelets and some french toast. I opted for the three slices because it came with ham, Italian sausage or bacon. I went with sausage.

Miss Katie's DinerYes. The French toast was accompanied with two tubs of butter and syrup, so of course I slathered that all over it. Delicious. I really like French toast, can you tell? The sausage was also tasty. It was quick, filling and tasty - so tourist trap or not, I'm a fan.
