Excellent neighborhood cafe

Excellent service and love their chai latte. Easy to see why this is a great place to meet for coffee talk amongst friends of the "Good Neighbor City". Daily breakfast specials and decent portions.

Great meal in a wonderful new space with plenty of seating and lovely ambiance. The burritos are fantastic and absolutely packed. Iced coffee is also great. Service is fast and the staff is very friendly.

Three of us went for breakfast and were treated to a wonderful meal. The pancakes are excellent and a good size. I had "The Badger" breakfast sandwich but was disappointed that the English muffin was not toasted. Be that as it may, it was tasty and a good value. Service was sparse and we waited a little longer than we... More

Food, coffee,staff still good. New location too noisy,depleted bakery selection,even early, trash area near order line. Disappointing because I loved the original restaurant. I still gave 4/5 because the problems are fixable..just bad design.

On a recent trip to Wi my wife and I met up with a friend for breakfast and were very pleased with the food. The breakfast wrap I had was quite good, coffee very good and atmosphere pleasant. Service a bit slow but ok. I would eat here again.

I like Prairie but I have 3 issues all with breakfast. First and foremost look at the way other places deal with weekend crowds. Hire a host to hand out numbers for seating. I see people leave because theyre not sure they will get a table. Second. Fry the eggs in some other oil. Right now they are an unpleasant... More

Worth the wait on a busy Sunday in April. The food was above average and the coffee was great! We enjoyed the Badger Sandwich.

The Prairie Cafe & Bakery not only has a wonderful (albeit somewhat limited) menu, but all of the food, whether breakfast, lunch, beverages, or baked items are well prepared and of excellent quality. It's a nice little place to stop that is local and has a great atmosphere.

If you enjoy having a seat snatched out from under you, then this may be the place for you! That is just what happened to us. And if this is what the owners accept in their establishment, then I'm sure business will dwindle. We never even got to try the food. We asked for a refund as the rudeness of... More

The Prairie Cafe and Bakery is open only for breakfast and lunch, but the service is quick and friendly and there are daily specials to augment the varied and tasty regular menu --- and the bakery items are very good. Friends gather there, so the place is usually filled to near capacity by an extended lunch time. The noise level... More
