Description: 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!

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

Had a fantastic pita wrap. You order from the counter and then they deliver to your table. The wrap was fresh and delicious.

We sat down on one dirty table so we move to another that was just as sticky and dirty. That should have a huge sign to us about the food, but this was out first visit here so we ordered some nachos anyway. We received the large pile of whatever it really was (probably imitation cheese on the generic nachos).... More
