Great great food, very tasty ! Very friendly staff and good service. Coffee is a little strong and music was a little depressing (and loud) for brunch.

Everything I have ever eaten his is fantastic! They have the most unique omelet combinations, and the servings are huge! The Southwest and the Peppered Bacon are my favorites. They have huge and tasty pancakes too! This is the beast breakfast place in Eau Claire, in my opinion!

I've been here many times and I've have mixed feelings. When I come here for strawberry nutella crepes, they are absolutely amazing and delicious. When I come here for eggs, they're not the best. If I'm going to get eggs, I usually get the Real Housewives of E.C. omelette, which is supposed to be healthy. There is a ridiculous amount... More

We saw a review of this restaurant and had to try it based on the reviews of the nutella crepe. They absolutely did not disappoint!!! The crepe was awesome - my daughter loved it. I had the stuffed french toast...also super yuumy! We enjoyed it so much we went back on our second morning to do it all over again!... More

I have been here a few times and I'm still not quite sure what to think. The breakfast burrito is very good, but overwhelmed by the amount of pork they put in it. The bagel with smoked salmon is wonderful but it's warm, cooked smoked salmon, not lox as one might expect. The coffee is very good but no refills,... More

If I ever find myself on death row, I know what I want for my last meal. Strawberry Nutella Crepes from The Nucleus. All sweet strawberries on a bed of Nutella, wrapped in an enormous perfectly cooked crepe with fresh whipped cream and drizzled with some more Nutella. Outrageous. Husband ordered more sensibly and got 3 buckwheat pancakes and sausage,... More

This is the place to take your college student when you come to visit. Proportions are great, variety is great and your student will invariably see someone they know from school. As some reviewers have commented, wait time can be long but it is worth the wait. It is located in an ancient but quirky building on Water St. The... More

They have a limited selection mainly breakfast items. The food was OK. Not sure why all the high ratings. Cozy atmosphere. Staff was a little arrogant. Located downtown on Water Street. Not worth driving far for. Pricey for breakfast. More of a yuppie college coffee crowd hangout.

We went there almost 2 hours before church for breakfast. We were seated right away, and were not even given menus, while we watched another table get seated and given menus. When the other table put in their order, we realized we were being ignored, and asked for menus. The waitress did not apologize. We then told them we needed... More
