This is a great little downtown restaurant that serves hot and cold hoagies on homemade buns, with fresh ingredients. I've been here many times, and the food is ALWAYS top notch. The service is always pleasant, and the sandwiches are made as you order them. I would also recommend their soups, especially the BEER CHEESE soup. Creamy, and ohh, soo,... More

I have always enjoyed the Acoutic's hoagies as well as their soup. This is also a good place to "tuck away" in a booth and catch up with friends.

I've been to this specific cafe on several occasions. The crew is warm and welcoming, drinks are abundant. My only issue is that the food could be done better. Well worth the visit overall.

We enjoyed the ham and cheese and tuna sandwiches. The bread was fresh and delicious. We liked the bread so much we asked for an extra slice of the beer cheese bread to go. The hot soup was tasty. The servers were friendly.

Stopped in for lunch while on a long road trip. Very friendly, clean, easy to order. We had soup, beer bread, and a pita sandwich. We liked the attention to saving the environment and not using too much plastic. Restrooms very clean. Wish we could stop there more often!

We have been stopping at the Acoustic Cafe for years for a lattes and snacks when we have been on motorcycle rides into the beautiful area around Duran, Menomonie, and point SW for years. Then we became vegans and didn't even think about stopping. Recently we decided to check on line to see what was available to us in Menomonie... More
