Good Breakfast/Brunch experience

We enjoyed the experience and the food was fresh and high quality. We spent close to $50 for two of us, which seemed expensive, although it was great knowing the ingredients for fresh and it was a true farm to table experience. The menu option were varied and unique to this experience, and somewhat... read more

BEST BACON EVER! Their breakfasts are really good, there was nothing left on ANY of our plates. Particularly enjoyed the "If You Must" eggs and the "Back to Bed" French Toast! No reservations are accepted for breakfast and lunch, so plan to wait 20 minutes for a table, longer if you want to eat out on the patio. Service is... More

Urban, fresh establishment in a delightfully creative space. Food was delicious although menu choices were limited. Our first time and hope to eat there again when visiting the area.

I grew up in rural Minnesota and each year my family would purchase a half cow for the freezer. Back then (in the 60's) the beef was just so very different than anything you can buy today. It was just so much more flavorful and fresh! Wise Acre Eatery, while being a beautiful little green oasis on a winter day... More

First impressions are important and I have to say that the fact that Wise Acres Eatery is in a renovated filling station is cool. The planters outside, though were still from winter looked unique and beautiful. I can only imagine what they look like during the rest of the seasons. Interior is modern, hip and inviting. Seating is close, because... More

I am very mixed on how I liked this place. I loved the outside with the tables, their sign, and being in a former garage. Parking is very tight. I had the special, which was a sloppy joe, and should have paid attention when they said they added a very slight spice for seasoning. The first taste was good, but... More

Wise Acre does the farm-to-table scene really well -- excellent food across the board without being pretentious about the whole thing. Warm, casual atmosphere, excellent service, and a nice beer and wine list, too. Even though the menu is limited -- as is usually the case in farm-to-table places -- the range and size of offerings was quite good. Our... More

This place has a fantastic ambiance even though it might feel close at times. The service is excellent and brunch is delicious. Is nice to have farm food close to home.

Stepping into this place I immediately feel like I'm being welcomed into someone's home. The atmosphere is warm and the staff even warmer. It's not often you step into a restaurant and don't feel like you are being rushed on some level; here it feels like you are being encouraged to savor every bite and enjoy every sip for as... More

We happened upon this place during what they call their happy hour. During this time they offer a limited menu from what they have from earlier in day and the dinner menu. We had the burger special which included a burger with brie, and a slice bacon with a side of fries and a tap beer. We had each of... More
