Our Cafes

Since 1994, Alterra has been bringing strong coffee to the folks of the metro-Milwaukee area. From the industrial vibe of the Fifth Ward Foundry café to the amazing views and history at Alterra at the Lake, each of our locations has a unique personality and style.

One common thread shared by all of our cafes is our use of recycled building materials and our 100% participation in WE Energies "Energy for Tomorrow" program. Click on the café buttons on the right to read more about our cafes and to learn why Alterra was voted one of the country's "Ten Hottest Coffeehouses" by Forbes Traveler Magazine and one of ten places "to get the best coffee in America" by GQ Magazine.

Menus are available on each cafe page.
