Shopping, dining, entertainment and custard. On top of that… how about a short commute? The Town of Brookfield is one of Wisconsin’s top shopping, dining and entertainment destinations. But more than that, it’s a community that you’ll instantly feel a part of, and located just west of Milwaukee. In this episode of Discover Wisconsin, hosts Alex Wehrley and Eric Paulsen show us around their home turf in the Town of Brookfield!
We start our day at The Corners of Brookfield where Eric chats with Elizabeth Clappier on what makes The Corners a fantastic and beloved community space and entertainment destination. This space, that feels more like a city within a town, is home to shops all the best national retailers, unique local boutiques, and food for every craving.

As far as shopping, Alex shows us around some of her personal favorites, not to mention fantastic places to find that perfect, trendy and one-of-a-kind finds that make ideal gifts for anyone on your list, even yourself! Who wouldn’t want a stone brandy pour stand that’s decorative and functional? Some stores featured include: Fresh Baked Café, Argosy Limited, Chicos, Twigs, and Kendra Scott.
To feed your brunch craving, join Eric as he checks out hot-spot, Mimosa. Owner Apostoli Everniadis even shares his secret for why Mimosa is such a sought-after foodie destination. A traditional Wisconsin breakfast place, but with a twist. Everything they make just a little bit different, a little more from scratch, a little more local, more organic. Mimosa takes pride in these efforts as “something we have promised our guests, and our team, and our community, to be doing differently for the rest of our lives as a restaurant.” Did you know Mimosa was not named after the bubbly drink? Talk about a twist! (jump to minute 11 to find out what cultural item was their inspiration).
