Beans & Barley Market & Cafe Restaurant Review: Located on Milwaukee's East Side, this brightly lit restaurant attracts a hip crowd of health-conscious diners. The menu, which is mostly locally sourced, relies heavily on whole-grain and vegetable offerings, including the expected veggie burgers and steamed vegetables as well as more creative Southwestern and Indian-influenced salads and entrées. But there are some meat dishes for those who don’t like to go without, including Cajun grilled chicken, tuna salad, baked turkey and chicken quesadillas. The soups are all made with homemade stocks, and the vegetarian chili is a local favorite. Juices and smoothies, from orange to chocolate-banana, are equally fresh and flavorful.
