The Harley-Davidson Museum Reveals its Best Kept secret: Motor and Cafe Racer


While the Harley-Davidson Museum’s exhibits have so far been shrouded in mystery, perhaps the destination’s best kept secret has been its two new restaurants, Motor and Cafe Racer. This isn’t your typical Museum restaurant.

“After a ride, bikers often gather to share stories of the day’s journey – the Harley-Davidson experience is made of those moments of connection,” said Stacey Schiesl, Harley-Davidson Museum Director. “From the menu selection to the space design, Motor and Cafe Racer offer bold flavors of the open road in a space that fosters the camaraderie Harley-Davidson is known for.”

At the 150-seat restaurant Motor, a menu of bold American classics with a twist celebrates the discoveries of the open road. The peach cobbler, painstakingly perfected, will look, taste and go down exactly like it does in the roadside diners of Georgia. There will be hints of Little Rock in the smoked BBQ ribs, echoes of an endless ride through the countryside in the “One Pounder” pork chop, and deep-laid memories of Kansas City in the strip steak. As far west, east, north and south as the menu travels, it will always keep one foot planted firmly in the restaurant’s hometown. Milwaukee’s best sausage and bratwurst, sharp Wisconsin cheddar, walleye straight from the lake, locally farmed produce, and macro- and micro-brews will all be offered.
