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

The live Latin music is known as "La Peña," which is named for an old Spanish tradition among travelers to gather around bonfires to share their experiences through music, dance, and stories.






Mexican and Puerto Rican Food With Flair

Café el Sol, located in the heart of Milwaukee's Hispanic community within the United Community Center, specializes in both Mexican and Puerto Rican cuisine—adding some flair to your next breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

A highlight is the special Latin-style fish dinner buffet on Friday nights, complete with live Latin entertainment from 6:30–8:30 p.m.—definitely not your ordinary fish fry. The Friday night Fish Dinner Buffet was voted in October of 2003 by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel readers as one of the "Best Ethnic Adaptations" of a local fish fry and was featured in a March 2015 profile by Fox 6's Studio A.
