Although I am just doing a food review on Comet, I have eaten there five times and have enjoyed every trip I have taken to this retro-inspired bar/café that serves items from bacon-filled pancakes to their comet benedict (the dish I chose), which is a biscuit topped with sausage and gravy, ham and a fried egg, all for eight bucks.
A few pros of Comet Café is its ambiance, playing a wide range of music to offering coloring books for young and old artists alike and their extremely inexpensive pricing. Their food is also made from scratch, locally sourced and tastes homemade, a plus for any restaurant. Broken Yolk, Build-a-Burger and other breakfast joints might be closer in location and possess a familiar taste, but Comet mixes up their breakfast, lunch and dinner options, offering deep-fried ribs, an apple walnut burger and an ahi tuna burger, to name a few. Finding something new to eat is always an adventure but definitely always delicious. By the way, they sell a wide variety of cupcakes if you were still not persuaded.
When asked what makes Comet Café different from other venues, the waitress stated "A lot of employees have been their for a long time so I think that speaks to how much people love being in this atmosphere." Having a low turnover rate at a restaurant signifies Comet's positive vibes and happiness of their employees, and by the taste of their food and service, it is safe to say that this venue on Milwaukee's east side is not going anywhere any time soon.
