We stopped on a family adventure in Southern WI at this cafe for lunch! Very cute atmosphere - looked like an excellent coffee bar - but it was not a coffee drinking kind of day. There were a ton of options on the menu for lunch - liked the childrens options as well! I think I could have made a... More

I order lunch from here on a regular basis. The food is always fresh. The chef always comes up with great lunch sandwich specials at a fair price.

This is a great little gem on Main Street in Dodgeville. I usually go for the Panini's here. Salads are great as well, but they removed my favorite. My favorite drink here is the Rasberry Lemonade. Staff is personable. They offer coffee, but I haven't tried any of them, but they if the coffee is like their food. They should... More

I always enjoy eating at the Cook's Room. It's always hard for us to choose what I (and others) are going to eat (sandwich, salad, etc...) The Tasty Turkey with cranberry chutney and pub chips or the Chicken Caesar salad or....or.... and even though I end up with leftovers there is always room for one of their delicious desserts. The...

We picked The Cook's Room on a day-trip in Nov 2015 and chose this little cozy spot for a light lunch. We just gulfed down some pastry at Quality Bakery, a few door down. Try their Bismarck donuts; it's their bestseller! Anyway, we were welcomed at the Cook's Room by a friendly waitress and she sat us at a great... More

Like sitting on rickety, too-small chairs, ordering from a menu that never changes, being served portions that are laughably small and painfully pricey? Then Cooks Room is the place for you. 'Nuff said.

We were the only breakfast guests on a weekday and enjoyed premium service and food. We had coffee and dessert another day which was absolutely perfect. This is our first choice for quality hometown service and food in Dodgeville.

Very nice find in the heart of downtown Dodgeville. Sandwiches and salads were wonderful. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The baguette bread was soft, not hard (crunchy) like I expected. Made for a nice sandwich. The desserts looked wonderful but we did not get any. I took some photos which will hopefully post soon. Will definitely go back... More

Nice atmosphere and servers. The whole menu is good but the soups and salads are my favorites. Fresh and homemade!
