Recommended by another attendee at a conference at UW-Stout. Loved the beer cheese soup and a salad with homemade dressing. Obviously a popular place for locals as we had to wait in line to order but certainly better than going to a chain. Fun atmosphere and good food.

parking is tough, and yet I tired to tough it out - for a sandwich...... That being said, the sandwich was better than one would get at any fast food spot. But - it is still a sandwich, Couple that with the fact that I covered up my Reagan Bush T-shirt for fear of repercussions, and - well. try it... More

We are driving across the country on Interstate 94, The coffee we picked up several days ago at the Acoustic Cafe, is the best coffee of the trip...still musing fondly about it 1500 miles later.

I used to go here all the time when I went to school in this town for years. The subs were delicious. However, I moved away for a couple years and came through town and stopped to eat. I had a certificate that I paid for through restaurant.com for a discount that I bought with no expiration date and decided... More

Amazing food, and cute little setting. If you have a chance to check it out when there's a live artist, you should really take advantage. The service is top notch, and definitely worth the stop.

Right downtown Menomonie. Rustic atmosphere. The bread is delicious. The food is great. Sandwiches are not your ordinary subs. The soup is heartwarming.

Stopped in for dinner with the family. Great service, friendly staff, & excellent food. Tried their homemade baked goods, hoagies, and a salad. Husband said it was the best corned beef sandwich he'd ever had. Salad was so fresh. Homemade dressing was awesome. We're definitely going back!

Friends were visiting from Milwaukee. We decided to stop and get a quick bite to eat before coming to my home. I was not impressed. Sandwich bread was hard and the workers were rude. I might give this restaurant one more chance... but it will be a while.

Stopped in for a sandwich around 1:45pm on a Saturday. Line to order was long and took a while to move. Many of the tables where dirty and not bused. I feel they may have been under staffed for the day. My wife thought her sandwich was just OK, mine I thought was a little better then OK. I had... More

We stopped here while visiting relatives in Menomonie. We loved this cafe. The baked goods alone are reason to stop. The hoagie sandwiches are quality, and really tasty. The buns are all homemade - fresh daily. Salads are super fresh, no wilted greens here, and their blue cheese dressing is very good. Also sampled - beer bread (made with local... More
