Lady owned + Locally Grown.

Miss Molly’s began as the someday dream of a neighborhood girl. After years of honing her skills as a pastry chef and revising drafts of business plans this Wauwatosa native made her dream a reality.

Miss Molly's is a cozy cafe that serves seasonal, healthy and locally sourced breakfast and lunch fare as well as a delectable assortment of scratch-made pastries. All of our menu items are made fresh daily prepared by a small staff of people who are obsessed with food. Seriously, obsessed. 

We proudly brew Anodyne coffee and pull some mean espresso shots. We offer a carefully selected menu of wines produced by vineyards that use sustainable farming practices as well as some top-notch Wisco-made beers. 

Our cafe is committed to working with local farmers and businesses to supply everything from veggies and grains to locally made soda, tea and juice. We compost our food waste and provide all biodegradable cups, lids, silverware, to-go containers and napkins.

Thank you for supporting our business and we hope to see you soon!

Isabelle Bishop

General Manager

Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Isabelle moved to Milwaukee to attend Marquette University. She graduated with a degree in philosophy, and dedicated most of her philosophical studies to food ethics. During her final semester she interned at Growing Power, and after volunteering in the cafe at the Riverwest Co-op for a few years, she realized she wanted to get involved with the culinary world. Drawn to the focus on ethical and sustainable food practices that support the local economy, Isabelle started working at Braise Restaurant after graduation where she met Molly. After learning more about Miss Molly's Pastries, Isabelle began working for Molly as her personal assistant and the Director of Brand Communications. Isabelle is excited to be a part of the next leg of the Miss Molly's journey.


Owner/Pastry Chef

It’s hard to say when Molly decided to pursue pastries as a profession but she has always had a sweet tooth. As a Wauwatosa native, she spent many summer nights riding her bike to Swan Pharmacy to pick out treats at the counter!

During her undergrad years she had the opportunity to study abroad in Paris, it was during this time that Molly began contemplating a career in culinary arts. Soon after undergrad she attended culinary school in Minneapolis and graduated with a degree in Baking & Pastry Arts. Molly has worked in cafes and fine dining restaurants in the Midwest and on the West Coast. Molly returned to her Milwaukee roots in 2012 and was hired as the pastry chef for Braise Restaurant. In 2016 she took a position as Executive Pastry Chef for Black Shoe Hospitality. 

Molly began catering parties in her free time which led to the creation of Miss Molly's Pastries in 2012. The company has grown over the years to become a top wedding caterer in Southeastern Wisconsin. Molly opened Miss Molly's Cafe & Pastry Shop in 2017 just a few blocks from her childhood home.
