Breakfast, lunch eatery proposed

March 25, 2009

A breakfast and lunch restaurant called Maxfields Pancake House could open in the former Heinemann's Restaurant location at Audubon Court, 333 E. Brown Deer Road, Bayside.

The Plan Commission on March 18 recommended the Village Board approve a permit allowing the restaurant to open.

Maxfields, owned by Gus Zarmakoupis, would be open from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, serving breakfast and lunch. Zarmakoupis said he hopes to open in mid- to late-April.

He opened a Maxfields Pancake House in Lombard, Ill., and operated it for five years before selling it and moving to the Milwaukee area, he said. His brother owns a Maxfields in Schaumburg, Ill.

He plans a similar type of operation and menu, but with some menu twists.

Besides pancakes, Maxfields will have all kinds of breakfast items including omelets, eggs and French toast, plus an array of luncheon items, he said.

Zarmakoupis also participated in a family business, the Capital Café, 14375 W. Capitol Drive, Brookfield.
