Classic diner food…the way you like it.
What do you think of when you think of classic diner food? Breakfast specialties, for sure: crispy hash browns, smokey bacon, beaming eggs, pancakes hot off the griddle. At Market Street Diner, we do breakfast as well as anyone…and we let you eat it anytime you want. (Who are we to say you can’t have breakfast for dinner?)
We’re also known for fresh, crispy salads, hot, hearty soups, and Wisconsin favorites like our famous Friday fish fry, Sunday pot roast, and weekend brunch buffets. And because we’re a full-service bakery, we have the most amazing array of freshly baked pies and cakes you’ll find anywhere. Everything is always made from scratch, and many of our ingredients are locally sourced. We’re in Wisconsin; why would we get dairy and eggs anywhere else?
