Andiamo, a new cafe in downtown Milwaukee, opens next to Lupi and Iris
Andiamo Coffee and Tea is now open for hot and cold drinks and downtown pastries, alongside its sibling, the new Franco-Italian restaurant Lupi et Iris.
It sits in commercial space on the ground floor of the 7Seventy7 Building, the 35-story tower of upscale apartments at 777 N. Van Buren St. Chef Adam Siegel and Michael DeMichele own and operate the businesses.
The name of the cafe has a caffeinated resonance – it translates from Italian as “let’s go!”
Andiamo is in its soft opening phase. Hours may be adjusted later, but the cafe is now open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
Stone Creek coffee and Rishi tea are served, hot or iced, including a range of espresso drinks that can be made with dairy, almond, oat or coconut milk. Italian sodas and lemonade are also on the menu.
The menu includes breakfast pastries from Matilda Bakehouse, including plain, chocolate, and ham and cheese croissants, sunny rolls (with orange), and fruit danishes. Pastries, including muffins and quick breads, range from $2.50 to $6.50.
Take-out coolers will be filled with sandwiches and salads, and a freezer will hold items such as pizza and ice cream, with the building’s tenants in mind.
