Located in Milwaukee's up-and-coming Fifth Ward neighborhood, the ALTERRA Foundry is housed in the former Kramer International foundry. The café's post-industrial design pays homage to the manufacturing tradition and history of our city. Opened in early 2006, the Foundry quickly has become a favorite morning coffee destination, a convenient place for lunch, and a relaxing hang-out spot in the evening.
