La Peña

Join us this Friday for our famous Fish Fry Buffet, a Margarita and Latin Music!


In addition to exposing people to the cuisine of the Latino community, Café el Sol also entertains its patrons with traditional Latin music. Latino Arts, Inc. brings in local and regional musicians to perform a variety of Latin music on Friday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Peñas originated long ago in Spain, when gypsies made their homes in caves in the mountains among the peñas, or large rocks. At night, the gypsies would gather around bonfires to share stories through spoken word, music, and dance.

Café el Sol has recreated this tradition by adding entertainment to its Friday night fish dinner buffet. Music is kept subdued so customers may dine and chat, but many choose to get up and dance.

Trio Los Tres performs at Cafe el SolIn the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's annual reader poll of the best area fish fries, Café el Sol's Friday night fish dinner buffet was voted among the "Best Ethnic Adaptation" of a fish fry in the Milwaukee area, and our unique fish fry was featured in a March 2015 segment on Fox 6's Studio A.

Fish dinner buffet & live entertainment: $13.95. Dinner served 5:00 – 8:30 p.m. with live entertainment beginning at 6:30 p.m.
