Our Seattle family of four met up with super-fun family in Waupaca, and as always, were in dire need of good espresso drinks. Cronie's saved the day. Conveniently located in quaint Waupaca, this lovely little place has high quality espresso drinks, tailor made to our liking with just the right amount of chocolate in our mochas. The lunch menu is... More

My coffee snob family members from Boston and Seattle all met at the Chain of Lakes. After some initial research we determined Cronies may be the only place in Waupaca with an espresso machine. We returned every day for a week. The service was always top notch and we enjoyed a large variety of coffee drinks. There are few places... More

We go to Cronies for breakfast and lunch every day when we are in Waupaca visiting our parents at the Veteran's home, VA King. I like to try to stay on a healthier path and they are more than willing to work with you to customize your order. However, if you want to eat a standard American diet that is... More

Most of the restaurants in this area cater to a taste bud that would be just as happy driving through as eating in. The fryolator is the cooking utensil of choice in most of Central Wisconsin. Cronie's, on the other hand, offers the following: - a coffee bar with an espresso machine! (a rarity around here) - beautiful and generous... More

I was in Waupaca for my sister's wedding this September and had to sneak in breakfast at Cronies with my husband. The coffee is always great; the peppermint mocha is my favorite. I was dissapointed to hear there was a shortage of Door County cherries this year so the Door County Cherry stuffed French toast I had been looking forward... More

A group of us went in on a Friday for lunch. The place was quite busy for 1pm. Most of us had the special burger which was delicious and cooked perfectly. I had the soup which was uninspiring and lukewarm. I wish I had chosen the other side - apple feta pasta. My friend let me try her's and it... More

They are attempting to be an "upscale" cafe but are failing miserably. The service was the WORST I ever had. The coffee was good but the server took forever in bringing it along with everything else. Their menu consists of "fancy" grilled cheese sandwiches, wraps and salads. I had a sandwich and chicken soup which was too salty and cold.... More

My wife the picky one and I went in for breakfast; my first time and ordered a pancake and hashbrowns. I had heard the pancakes were big and it was. It covered the whole plate!!

I think they need to get rid of the cupcakes, they were gross, and dry. The coffee was good, but I wasted my money getting the cupcakes, won't be making that mistake again.

CroniesCafe, Owner at Cronies, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to review us. I hope you can find time to come back in soon! I apologize if the cupcakes were not up to par and I hope they didn't bring down the entire experience. They are from an outside vendor, though normally are of excellent quality. All other desserts are made in-house, and we... More
