Only had Happy Hour menu at time of visit. But very different menu from most other places. Good beer and wine selection. One in our party just had to have the root beer float. Nothing looked like commercial food, all appeared made on site.

Non-pretetious, fresh and unexpected flavorful combinations, healthy eating designed with visual appeal, attention to detail, pleasant surroundings, recycled neighborhood building, friendly staff - in other words, nothing seems to be missing. Bonus: a visit to their companion garden store across the street.

very hip, very cool restaurant with delicious farm to table food and a creative wine program. Casual, almost garden-like atmosphere with wonderfully prepared food and a menu that constantly changes. Not a stuffy white tablecloth restaurant, but a delicious alternative.

I've eaten at Wise Acre but it's been a while. It's a stones throw from my old haunts and used to be a filling station years ago. Bad me for forgetting what a terrific place this is! Breakfast today. Vegetable hash with a slab of...More

We thought we would try something new for breakfast after picking up my daughter and son-in-law at the airport early in the morning rather than one of the chain breakfast places. Wise Acre does not open until 9am and is a cute space in an...More

The staff here could not have been nicer--the best thing about the place. The atmosphere is attractive, an old gas station, but very noisy--to be expected on Sat. night perhaps. The food--nyah. The menu on the website, which we specifically came for, had changed. The...More

The food is interesting, and reasonably good, and the outdoor seating is attractive - but the menu in this very small venue is extremely limited. I stopped by to get a sandwich to take home and didn't find anything that would "travel." Ended up with...More
