A BIT OF GREECE, RIGHT HERE.

FOR 10 YEARS OUZO CAFE HAS SERVED THE BEST GREEK FOOD IN MILWAUKEE, OFFERING A WIDE VARIETY OF TRADITIONAL AND MODERN GREEK DISHES, LATE NIGHT HOURS, A FULL BAR AND A DOZEN OUZOS. OPA!

When our parents and grandparents made their journey from Greece to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, they brought the old country with them – the traditions, music, recipes, and yes, the Ouzo. Our family cherishes their heritage and culture, and we inspire our children with it.

Being Greek means eating Greek. Eating Greek means being able to taste, smell, see and maybe even hearl all the love that goes into the wonderful dishes of Greece.

Ouzo is not just a Greek aperitif, it symbolizes the spirit of Greek life which always involves foods made from the freshest ingredients with all the cook’s love.

The sharing of food whenever family or friends gather is typical of the Greek way of life. The meal begins with Ouzo and a communal course of meze – small plates containing various kinds of cold and hot foods from cheese, olives and spreads to spinach pie, lamb and dolmades.

At Ouzo Cafe you’ll be able to share in all the best that represents the Greek way of life as if you were a member of our family. Let Ouzo be the celebration of life.

Welcome to Ouzo Cafe, celebrating its tenth year of bringing Milwaukee the finest possible Greek food, both traditional and modern.

CELEBRATE

WITH THE TRADITION OF OUZO.

Ouzo has its roots in tsipouro, which is said to have been the pet project of a group of 14th-century monks living in a monastery on Mount Athos. One version of it was flavored with anise. This version eventually came to be called ouzo. Its strong flavor resembles black licorice.

In modern Greece, ouzeries can be found in nearly all cities, towns, and villages. These cafe-like establishments serve ouzo with mezedes — appetizers such as octopus, salad, sardines, calamari, fried zucchini, feta cheese, and clams, among others. It is traditionally slowly sipped (usually mixed with water or ice) together with mezedes shared with others over a period of several hours in the early evening.

Ouzo is more than a drink. It is a long standing tradition as the starter of intimate gatherings of friends or a family meal.

OPA!

OUZO IS MORE THAN A DRINK, IT’S A WAY OF LIFE

“Really delicious food served in a wonderful European bistro setting. This is a couple steps up from typical Greek fare”.

If you want authentic Greek then come here! The food is absolutely delicious. The best hummus & pita dish I have ever had.

This place has the best Greek food I’ve had anywhere, let alone in Milwaukee. They don’t just serve the usual gyro house stuff but rather fresh, creative dishes.
