Alterra at the Lake

Alterra at the Lake Review

Craving a jolt of flavorful java? Take a coffee break from the usual and perk up with a cup at this local chain, housed in a historic water pumping station (you can still see the old pump). Amid lofty ceilings, exposed brick and hardwood floors, sip your lovingly crafted and poured brews, made-from-scratch pastries and simple and fresh sandwiches like pesto mozzarella, Wisconsin grilled cheese and avocado BLT. There are 11 Alterra locations throughout the Milwaukee area.
