Classic American cuisine with a touch of granola lifestyle. Had the biscuits and gravy for breakfast and it was outstanding! Well priced, speedy and polite staff. Definitely a must visit.

Northside La Crosse locals know about it, and the word is spreading--but slowly, which means you can still get in there for some amazing meals with authentic Southern edges, a simple and friendly down-home service ice by really nice, warm people, very affordably prices, and...More

Stopped for breakfast on a late Saturday morning. Place was crazy busy with a 20 minute wait. Eclectic menu, but I was looking for a normal eggs and bacon breakfast. Menu substitutions are not welcome. I probably would not come back.

Service was attentive and quick. Brussels Bowl was excellent (white rice, black beans, sweet potato, fried Brussels sprouts), tahini lime viniagrette. Had option to order with added protein (e.g. shrimp, chicken, or seitan), but didn't need it and greatly enjoyed this dish. Coffee good, too.

Decided to lunch here on the way home from walking at Riverside Park. Place was very busy and they could use another server, but the wait for food was worth it. Curry bowl and chicken sandwich with a slice bowl of corn poblano soup.
