Brick oven pizzas, built-to-order sandwiches, a soup and salad bar, ice cream and dessert station, full breakfasts and a main entrée that changes daily are among your choices.

Stop by, say hi and grab a hug every weekday morning in the Main Dining Room, which was recently renamed for her. Read more about Gert in a story from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
