My friend Dave just let me know about his breakfast spot. Here's what he says:
The place is called Murray Place. It's just north of North Avenue, on, er, Murray (2321 N. Murray Ave., Milwaukee, WI 5211,  273-1488, it sez in the phone book). Seems nice enough, I esp. like the big windows and eastern exposure, breakfast, lunch, dinner,
has a bar ...
The menu sounds pretty quirky; the two dishes he mentioned to me were "oatmeal brulee" (i.e. with caramelized sugar) and scrambled eggs in portobello mushroom caps.
