We stopped here today for lunch. It was incredibly good and not expensive! I had a turkey wrap and loved it - with sprouts and a tangy sauce (I said no to the mayo and it was not dry). My daughter had a bowl of chili which was outstanding in flavor. My husband had a hoagie with hummus and I... More

Great place to meet a friend. Order your soup and sandwich at the counter and they bring it out to you. Fire up your computer and get some work done. All a good thing!

The Acoustic Cafe is one of those must visit places. It's a quirky, laid-back coffee house with really good food. The atmosphere is relaxing and fun. The art on display is often the work of either students at the university or employees. Fun place.

I really enjoyed the hoagie/soup combo (roast beef/beer cheese). My lunch companion had the hummus pita and said it was fantastic. The brewed iced tea was delicious as well. An eclectic decor I would expect next door to a university and a pleasant mix of customers. I will definitely be returning soon.

Best hoagies I've ever had. Soup is homemade and amazing! Always a vegetarian choice. Muffins are super yummy too!!! They also have tacos that I heard are awesome! Great coffee place to relax and even study for stout students.

I had a wonderful roast beef sandwich with a special sauce. The soup that my dining companion had was also excellent.

The sandwiches here are some of the best you'll eat. They look small but are very filling and they taste so fresh. I had to try the coffee because so many people recommended it, but they served me coffee that had been clearly brewed hours ago. Even though it was old (because we visited at at a dead time, 3pm)...

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.
