Quaint and Delicious.

Very nice find in the heart of downtown Dodgeville. Sandwiches and salads were wonderful. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The baguette bread was soft, not hard (crunchy) like I expected. Made for a nice sandwich. The desserts looked wonderful but we did not get any. I took some photos... read more

Nice atmosphere and servers. The whole menu is good but the soups and salads are my favorites. Fresh and homemade!

Fresh made soups everyday, hot of the grill panini's, HUGE SALADS and great coffee! Your meal may not come out in 5 min, but it's definately worth the extra wait.

Fresh salads that are made to order. The wraps are very tasty and they have a different special every day.

We had salads, one Greek and one Caesar, both excellent. I ordered a half and it was plenty for my small appetite. Service was fast even over the busy lunch hour. Don't miss Cook's Room when in Dodgeville, WI

What a surprise to find in a small place like Dodgeville, Wi. We had lunch there and it was OUTSTANDING. I'm vegetarian and usually have trouble finding something on the menu. The food is outstanding. The sandwich I had was probably the best "vegetarian" sandwich I have come across. (Panni) Very nice looking place. I'm sorry it located in a... More

I had the quiche, was good, but no crust, which I missed. Spouse had a breakfast panini which was huge.

Have been there multiple times over the years, and I am still going back. Love the variety of sandwiches (especially the turkey with cranberry chutney on the multigrain), soups, and salads (and I'm not a salad person, but I love the Chicken Caesar). The fresh made chips with the meal and a luscious dessert at the end cap off a... More

The daily soups alone are worth the trip. My favorite is mushroom bisque but you cant' go wrong with any of their soups. I highly recommend the Tasty Turkey sandwich for lunch (my default favorite) if I am not tempted by their creative daily specials. Even when I am back in Los Angeles, I follow the Cooks Room FB page... More
