I wanted a salad and this was a great place to get one. Really fresh, really tasty, and I liked discovering one more new veggie each time I turned the bowl. Although I was in the mood for vegetables, the bacon slab and pickled egg were more than welcome. Dressing was fine, not memorable. Not sure why the obviously not... More

Selected by my old college roommate for a Sunday brunch. They do not take brunch reservations, but at 11:00 a.m. we waited less than 15 minutes. An eclectic menu offers traditional dishes with a twist and tout their farm to table emphasis. Our choices included the hash offering, the egg sandwich, herb scramble(2), fruit cup and carmel pinwheels. Coffee and... More

I can not find a farm to table in Chicago (where I live) as fantastic as Wise Acre. We were told we had an hour wait when we showed up for brunch, and that was PERFECT. It gave us time to browse the gardens across the street, and see what Wise Acre was all about...before being seated and hearing what... More

First of all our dining experience was very nice from hostess seating to the bill. As others mentioned, the grub is local, sustainable, and organic. While I'm not into organic so much, I believe in and support local and sustainable. While the staff was informative about the menu and food origin, I never got the impression that it was a... More

This is not my first review of Wise Acre. Because I love the Tangletown Gardens across the street and the owner, I want to give Wise Acre the benefit of the doubt. (Owned by the same people). The food has never been the problem. Tonight, I would say exceptional. The problem in the past has been wait staff. Not this... More

I scanned the reviews to see if I came on a bad day or if I just didn't "get" the place, but several reviews mention 1) that the place is pretentious, 2) that the food is overpriced, and 3) that the "hostess" is, simply, rude. We had traveled to south Minneapolis to visit our favorite Tangletown Gardens, and thought we'd... More

The breakfasts are great, I recommend the CSA hash. The indoor space can get a bit on the cramped side when it's a full house. During good weather there is outdoor seating, I recommend that if possible.

Saw this on a few "best-of" lists, so decided to make the drive south out of downtown for dinner. I think I was expecting it to be on a farm after the farm-to-table billing, and was surprised to find what looked like a converted garage (it was) on a busy street. But it's comfortable and casual inside, and there was... More

My husband and I had a late breakfast there last week. The restaurant is small, but they have done a very good job with the decor and it feels very welcoming. I had eggs, bacon and toast: standard breakfast food, but the taste was all but standard. The eggs were flavorful and had a creamy texture, the thick slice of... More

One of the best features of Wise Acre Eatery (beyond the value for the money) is the diverse menu. Everything is direct-sourced and high quality. Light and hearty eaters alike will be pleased. Very open and airy atmosphere.
