Sam’s Place is Milwaukee’s Jazziest Coffeehouse. It undoubtedly earns the title, given the café’s décor, the memorabilia, and its commitment to playing jazz music both live and recorded.

Born from Belton’s passion for coffee, great food, and bringing together people from all walks of life, Sam’s Place is committed to building community. Our mission is to offer a great menu and exceptional service at a fair price – and to provide our customers a destination where they can comfortably say, “This is my place.”
