Local Eggs from Old Plank Farm

Cafe 1505 is committed more than ever to sourcing as many ingredients from as close to the cafe as possible.  Over the past three years, we have grown some of our produce and herbs during the season and have begun sourcing local items for our 100 Mile Menu.  We have received great feedback from our guests and even some local press in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel about our 100 Mile Menu.

Why We Do What We Do

For years people have asked me, “Why do you do what you do?” While I could offer some deep philosophical reason about my beliefs that the world is intertwined and there are no chance encounters, or that the journey is more important than the result, or that understanding the importance of being is true understanding. But what I think people mean is, “Why do you run a restaurant?” That is a far simpler and perhaps less thought provoking answer. I love it.
