Canela Café Opening This Summer on Milwaukee’s Historic Downer Avenue
New Retailer on Downer Avenue to Serve Breakfasts and Lunches Daily
Milwaukee (May 13, 2021) – Milwaukee’s historic Downer Avenue retail district is gaining a new restaurant his summer with the addition of Canela Café, which will serve breakfast and lunch seven days a week.
Located at 2621 N. Downer Avenue, Canela Café will serve a full array of breakfast and lunch items, with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients and fresh options.
With an opening expected in July or August, Canela Café will fill a recent vacancy left by the closing of a restaurant during the pandemic.
The new restaurant continues a trend of business growth in the Downer Avenue district, a favorite Milwaukee shopping area for more than 100 years.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Canela Café to Downer Avenue,” said Elizabeth Brodek, executive director of the Historic Downer Business Improvement District. “The mix of offerings is both accessible and upscale, and we’re looking forward to this restaurant rounding out our wonderful mix of businesses on Downer Avenue. This fills a prime space in the district and leaves only two open storefront locations on this vibrant street.”
