food, margaritas and a great summer patio.
These are legit old train cars that have been re-purposed, while still on the tracks that run through Waukesha. They have tables and booths and lots of light through all the windows. The original shades are still intact, but non-functioning. From our table, I could see the pancake, waffle and egg stations, as well as one of the buffets.
We were instantly greeted by a cheery server who told us briefly about the brunch and told us to have at it. So we did as we were told and headed out of the train car and down to the brunch.
We were instantly overwhelmed but in a good way. We wandered around the seven tables (yes seven!!!) full of food and had no idea where to start. We asked a gentleman that was filling up his plate what was the best and he told us the shrimp plates were the best thing. We looked it over and decided that would be plate two!
I started with one of the buffet carts and filled my plate with steak & mole sauce, steak, peppers & cheese, zucchini pudding, bacon and a strawberry goat cheese salad. I ate everything up and the steak with mole was the only thing that I wasn't a fan of. I'm not sure what sort of meat it was, but I just didn't like the texture. The zucchini pudding was amazing. It tasted like eggs and finely chopped zucchini, cream, salt and pepper.
Plate two was mostly consumed with a made-just-for-me belgium waffle. I put some fresh fruit on it and tried to get some syrup on it, but the container was hard to poor from. I went back for more zuchinni pudding and then some fiesta potatoes and melon. The dessert table was calling my name, but I held off.
We never made it to the dessert table as we began catching up and chitty-chatting our way through our last plates. The mimosas were wonderful after the meal while we continued to chat.
I highly recommend this brunch, but it is a little hard to get around when it's crowded because the tables are in U-shapes. But if you don't mind a little wait for the food, it's worth every bite.
Other great area brunches are People's Park and Thunder Bay Grill.
