A locally-owned coffee and sandwich shop, The Acoustic Cafe is your destination for unforgettable food, music, local beers, and good times! The Acoustic Cafe is deeply rooted in our community, from our food to our beers to our music! We've been serving the best sandwiches in town to our Menomonie and UW Stout communities since 1993. Come in today for a truly delicious hoagie; they're prepared with homemade bread and our own special sauce for a sandwich experience you won't soon forget. Need something hot to warm you up in our cold Wisconsin winters? Enjoy our famous Beer Cheese Soup, chili, or even a veggie soup! We're always changing up our soup menu so you'll be sure to find the perfect bowl to soothe your cravings. Whatever you're ordering up, you won't be disappointed! Our baked goods are all made in-house, and our loose leaf teas, coffee, honey, and even tomatoes are all sourced locally. Make plans this weekend to join us for live music by local acts. And while you're at it, grab one of our phenomenal Wisconsin-brewed beers starting at just $2! We look forward to seeing you at The Acoustic Cafe for good food, good music, and good times!

Always good sandwiches

I love the sauce they put on their sandwiches. Everything is always fresh, and the service is good. It is a very popular spot for lunch and is close to campus.

This place is uber charming and cozy. We went in the summer so it was not crowded, but we could imagine it filled with students studying and hanging out. The food was fine. We had two different kinds of hoagies and the beer cheese soup. The portions were very generous. If we are in the area again, we would return... More

Had a nice soup and salad lunch. Lettuce was crisp, soup was tasty Service was prompt but perfunctory. Smiles and good cheer were in short supply. I had stopped into the Raw Deal hoping to show the vegetarian restaurant some love but after standing around for a couple of minutes with no one behind the counter to take an order... More

I came into town for a conference and discovered this place wondering downtown. The fresh baked bread for the sanwiches and the cold pressed coffee were good enough that I spent almost every breakfast and lunch here. Really friendly staff, beer on tap, ice cream, and a lovely homemade dressing for sandwiches and salads. A must visit.

This is a very laid back hang out kind of place. The food is very good, soup and sandwiches, but I really wouldn't classify it a restaurant. Rather, it is a great place for students to come to hang out or do some homework and get some hot soup, a hot sandwich, or hot coffee. I had a salami hoagie... More

I've been to both this Acoustic in Menomonie and the one down in Winona, MN. They serve great heated hoagies and excellent soups! The only thing that keeps me from going there more often is the non-existent parking situation.

I have been stopping in here for many years when in Menomonie, so I thought I might as well finally write a review. We were just here last weekend (5-17-2015) prior to hiking the nearby Red Cedar Trail. The sandwiches here are wholesome and great tasting, as are the coffee selections. Last weekend I had the cappuccino, which was delicious... More

I revisited Acoustc recently since they started serving "very" fresh salads with outstanding homemade dressing. Great, healthy, fresh veggies in a perfect serving size. Good quality and fair prices.

They have a decent amount of options for your sandwiches, wraps and pittas and a few local beers and two soup options. It has a nice atmosphere but the service and service staff could be better. They have some good Italian soda options too but it's your average sand which shop with nothing too special about it.

My husband and I visited this cafe years ago when our kids were little and we loved it. Now our son is at Stout and we were excited to get to revisit this quaint restaurant. We were not disappointed. Our whole family could not get over the delicious sandwiches, cheese beer soup and Sprecher's root beer. We are so excited... More
